- 2. The child has any medical condition that may impact growth or where the treatment is known to impact growth, such as but not limited to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, insulin-requiring diabetes mellitus, autoimmune inflammatory disease (including celiac disease, systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE], juvenile dermatomyositis, scleroderma, and others), autonomic neuropathy, or inflammatory bowel disease
- 3. Treatment in the previous 12 months prior to consent and assent with growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), anabolic steroids, or any other drug expected to affect growth velocity
- 4. Any surgery that affects the growth plate of the long bones that is planned, or has occurred in the past 18 months
- 5. Participation in any interventional study (investigational product or device) for treatment of achondroplasia or short stature
- 6. Has had bone-related surgery impacting assessment of anthropometric measurements or is expected to have it during the study period. Children with previous limb-lengthening surgery may enroll if surgery occurred at least 18 months prior to the date of consent/assent and healing is complete without sequelae as determined by the investigator
