Dendritic Cells for Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) Therapy
Phase IB will evaluate the safety of autologous, ex vivo-engineered, co-stimulation impaired dendtritic cells to maintain and improve functional residual beta cell mass in new onset Type I Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) patients. Efficacy measures will be collected and summarized.
Phase IIA will evaluate the safety and efficacy of 3 randomized treatment groups in new onset T1DM patients to assess if the antisense DNA-treated co-stimulation-impaired immunoregulatory dendritic cells (iDC) will safely preserve and/or increase B-cell mass resulting in improvement and/or normalization of blood glucose levels and glycated hemoglobin A1c.
Treatment of Type I Diabetes Mellitus.
