About the Simplici-T1 Study:
Simplici-T1 is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, adaptive study assessing the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety and tolerability of TTP399 as an adjunct to insulin therapy in adult patients with T1D. The study is being conducted with support from JDRF, the leading global organization funding research in type 1 diabetes.
The Phase 2 learn-and-confirm study is being conducted in two parts to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TTP399 in T1D patients over twelve weeks of daily dosing. Part 1 enrolled 19 patients on both insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors (CGMs). The topline results from Phase 2 - Part 1 were reported in June 2019:
- The study met its primary endpoint of change in A1c from baseline after 12 weeks of treatment. Patients treated with TTP399 (n=8) showed a statistically significant mean reduction in HbA1c of 0.7% (p=0.03) at 12 weeks relative to the placebo group (n=11).
- TTP399 was well tolerated with similar incidences of treatment-emergent adverse events overall and by system organ class. The study had neither a serious adverse event nor an incident of diabetic ketoacidosis reported.
Part 2 is now fully-enrolled with patients utilizing a treatment regimen that includes either insulin pumps or multiple daily injection therapy, with CGMs optional. Topline results from the study are expected in the first quarter of 2020.
