Ongoing Clinical Studies
The NorthEuropean Small-for-Gestational-Age (SGA) Study - NESGAS

Klinefelter syndrome – the effect of Testosterone treatment In PubertY (TIPY) - A randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled intervention study
In this Danish national TIPY study we aim to evaluate the effect of two years testosterone treatment during puberty in boys with Klinefelter syndrome aged 10 to 14 years. The study is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled intervention study. For more details on the study see here
Project on optimizing individual health care for children and adolescents with gender dysphoria
This project aims at mapping the bio-psycho-social profile of Danish children and adolescents with gender incongruence seeking health care at the National Center. It is a multidisciplinary cross-sectional and longitudinal project encompassing many scientific disciplines, i.e. medicine, basic sciences, psychology, psychiatry, sexology, epidemiology and anthropology. The aim is to contribute to an improved individualized and evidence-based health care with long-term sustainability.

The Danish Turner Cryopreservation Study – DANTE
DANTE a nationwide study investigating multiple aspects of Turner Syndrome (TS) including ovarian function, the natural history of premature ovarian insufficiency in TS, and potential markers of ovarian reserve in TS patients. TS girls identified as candidates for future fertility treatment based on their fertility potential, will be offered cryopreservation of ovarian tissue. The overarching primary objective is to assess the occurrence of pregnancies, abortions, and live births in women with TS following cryopreservation of ovarian tissue in childhood and autotransplantation in adulthood.

Long-acting GH in short children born SGA (REAL 5)
REAL 5 is a randomised, multi-centre, open-label, controlled phase 2 study comprising a 26-week main phase and a 4-year extension using weekly GH injections of longacting GH (Somapacitan) versus conventional daily GH injections. The study was initiated i 2019 sponsored by Novo Nordisk and conducted at 38 sites across 12 countries including 1 center in DK (Rigshospitalet)

Rigshospitalet Growth Hormone Database
All children and adolescents treated with Growth Hormone at the department of Growth and Reproduction are included in this registry. Clinical, biochemical and treatment-related outcomes are reported in the GH registry. More than 1000 GH-treated children with diagnoses like GH deficiency, short SGA children, Turner syndrome, Prader Willi Syndrome, SHOX haploinsufficiency and chronic renal failure are included. The study enables longterm follow up of GH-treated children from a single-center with highly uniform and standardized therapy. The Rigshospitalet GH database received an unrestricted grant from Novo Nordisk Denmark A/S.
Rigshospitalet Precocious Puberty Registry
All children referred with a diagnosis of early puberty since 2009 are registered in our retrospective registry (n=1361 girls). Clinical, biochemical and family history are registered. Diagnostic testing, brain MRI and outcome of GnRH therapy are recorded. This single-center study allows detailed phenotyping of CPP patients at baseline as well as longitudinal follow up of diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes in children with CPP. The study is approved by the Danish Healthy Authorities (no. 31-1521-50) and the Danish Data protection Agency (P-2020-145). The CPP study received an unrestricted grant from IPSEN A/S.

Rigshospitalet DSD registry and biobank
All patients with differences in sex development (DSD) which include Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome, CAH, 45X/46XY gonadal dysgenesis, PAIS, CAIS and ambiguous genitalia without DNA findings are included in the registry. The registry enables longterm follow up of rare endocrine disorders. All patient samples in the biobank were taken as part of the clinical follow-up. Access to patient data was approved by the Danish Patient Safety Authority (no. 3-3013-1376/1/) and the Danish Data Protection Agency (no. 2012-58-0004, I-Suite no. 04204).
