The MACRO registry will collect data prospectively on patients with active acromegaly, defined operationally as an adult patient with a confirmed diagnosis of acromegaly being treated with medical therapy; or eligible to be treated with medical therapy, e.g., having an elevated IGF-1. This is an observational study; therefore, no additional visits or laboratory tests will be required outside of local routine clinical practice. Dosing and duration of medical therapies is at the discretion of the treating physician, in accordance with local labeling.
