MedDRA version: 9.1 Level: LLT Classification code 10045228 Term: Type I diabetes mellitus
Intervention(s)

Product Code: NI-0401
Pharmaceutical Form: Concentrate for solution for infusion
Current Sponsor code: NI-0401
Other descriptive name: Fully human monoclonal antibody directed against the CD3 epsilon chain expressed on all T-cells
Concentration unit: mg/ml milligram(s)/millilitre

Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: To investigate the effect of NI-0401 on the preservation of ß-islet cell function as demonstrated by the AUC of stimulated C-peptide release.
To investigate the safety of three dose regimens of NI-0401 in patients with newly diagnosed T1D.
Primary end point(s): The mean change from baseline in the AUC of stimulated C-Peptide at Month 6
Secondary Objective: To investigate the effect of therapy with NI-0401 on the metabolic control of T1D demonstrated by regular measurement of: HbA1c over timeo; Insulin requirements over time; Average glucose measurements over time; Episodes of hyper and hypoglycemia.
To assess the pharmacodynamic and immunomodulatory effect of NI-0401 as demonstrated by regular measurement of: extent and duration of CD3-TCR modulation; number of circulating leucocytes and leucocyte subsets; serum pro and anti inflammatory cytokines; mRNA expression in leucocyteso plasma concentration of diabetes associated auto antibodies.
To assess the plasma pharmacokinetics of NI-0401.
To assess the potential for emergent anti-drug antibody and its effect on the efficacy and safety of NI-0401.
To assess the safety and efficacy of a single course vs. two courses of NI-0401 in patients with newly diagnosed T1D.
