Research Study Summary

A clinical research study of REMD-477 and Placebo Comparator for the treatment of Type1 Diabetes Mellitus

Research Study Title

A Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacodynamics of Multiple Doses of REMD-477 in Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus


This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacodynamics (PD) of multiple doses of REMD-477 in subjects who have Type 1 diabetes and are currently receiving insulin treatment. This study will determine whether REMD-477 can decrease daily insulin requirements and improve glycemic control after 12 weeks of treatment in subjects diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes with fasting C-peptide < 0.2 ng/mL at Screening.

The study will be conducted at multiple sites in the United States. Approximately 75 subjects with type 1 diabetes on stable doses of insulin will be randomized in a 1:1:1 fashion into one of three treatment groups.
