Further study details as provided by Jewish General Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The tolerability of injections and general safety will be assessed on the basis of patient recorded diaries, assessments of cutaneous injection sites during clinic visits, clinical observations, severity of AEs recorded by the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA), measurement of vital signs, physical examinations, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and clinical laboratory evaluations.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite C-Peptide efficacy according to specific parameters [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Composite secondary objectives of this study are to generate preliminary data on the efficacy of INGAP-P and ustekinumab in adult patients with established T1DM, specifically by change from baseline to Week 12-13 in:

    • Maximal C-peptide (Cmax) during mixed meal test (MMT) and glucagon stimulated test (GST);
    • C-peptide release (AUC) during MMT and GST;
    • Fasting C-peptide;
    • Fasting glucose (before breakfast and after at least 8 hours of fasting);
    • Longer term glycemic control as reflected by glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)

Estimated Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: November 2015
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: INGAP Peptide, Ustekinumab
INGAP Peptide, Ustekinumab subcutaneous
Drug: INGAP Peptide, Ustekinumab
Other Names:
  • INGAP Peptide
  • Ustekinumab (Stelara)

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of 12 weeks of subcutaneous (SC) daily administration of INGAP-P (600 mg SC once a day in three separate injection sites) with ustekinumab (two single injections of 45 mg SC, one as pretreatment two weeks before INGAP-P treatment begins and the second one after 2 weeks of INGAP-P treatment) in adult patients with established type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Safety will be evaluated by assessing local tolerability, recording incidence of hypoglycemia, performing safety laboratory measures at frequent intervals, and following subjects very closely for any adverse events (AEs).

Secondary objectives of this study are to generate preliminary data on the efficacy of INGAP-P and ustekinumab in adult patients with established T1DM, specifically by change from baseline to Week 12 in: 1) Maximal C-peptide (Cmax) during mixed meal test (MMT) and glucagon stimulated test (GST); 2) C-peptide release (AUC) during MMT and GST; 3) Fasting C-peptide; 4) Fasting glucose (before breakfast and after at least 8 hours of fasting); 5) Longer term glycemic control as reflected by glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG); and, 6) Total daily insulin dose relative to body weight.
