Condition type 1 diabetes mellitus
Treatments diapep277, placebo
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Andromeda Biotech Ltd.
Start date April 2010
End date October 2013
Trial size 450 participants
Trial identifier NCT01103284, DiaPep277-1001


This study will look at the treatment effect of DiaPep277 on preservation of beta-cell function, as defined by meal-stimulated secretion of insulin. DiaPep277 is a peptide that changes the way the immune system behaves, stopping its attack on the beta-cells.

Adults (>20 years) with newly diagnosed (<6 months) type 1 diabetes will be treated with 10 injections of DiaPep277 or Placebo over a 2-year treatment and follow-up period.
