Efficacy and Safety of Oral Octreolin™ in Patients With Acromegaly Who Are Currently Receiving Parenteral Somatostatin Analogs

Qualifying patients with acromegaly will receive treatment with Octreolin. Dose escalation
will proceed to identify the optimal dose for each patient. The optimal dose will be
continued as chronic therapy. Levels of GH and IGF-1 will be assessed during the study and
at end of treatment.
