This was a study designed to evaluate the efficacy of multiple doses of an investigational drug, NBI-6024, in adult (18 to 35 years of age) and adolescent (10 to 17 years of age) patients with new onset type 1 diabetes mellitus, on endogenous insulin production.
A total of 188 patients were enrolled in the study. The study was divided into three periods: screening, treatment (comprising an induction phase and maintenance phase), and follow-up.
NBI-6024 was generally well tolerated and exhibits a benign safety profile, as there were no significant safety issues with NBI-6024 treatment. In summary, NBI-6024 did not demonstrate statistically significant efficacy compared with placebo.
This was a Phase II, multicenter (international), randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel, dose-ranging study to evaluate the efficacy of multiple doses of an altered peptide ligand, NBI-6024, in adult (18 to 35 years of age) and adolescent (10 to 17 years of age) patients with new onset type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Study drug was administered subcutaneously a total of 26 times over a 24-month period. The first three doses were administered every 2 weeks (induction phase); all subsequent dosing occurred monthly (maintenance phase). Patients returned to the study center to receive study drug and have efficacy and safety assessments collected. The primary efficacy endpoint was the 2-hour peak C-peptide at Month 24. Other secondary analyses included AUC C-peptide, prescribed insulin usage, AUC blood glucose, HbA1c, hypoglycemic events, and hyperglycemic events.

Although diabetes mellitus is a well-researched systemic endocrinal disease, literature is scarce addressing the co-occurrence of oropharyngeal dysphagia with diabetes.
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
