C-Path and Diamyd Medical Announce Data Sharing Collaboration to Develop Advanced Drug Development Tools in Type 1 Diabetes
TUCSON, Ariz., and STOCKHOLM, Sweden. December 16, 2020 — The Critical Path Institute (C-Path) and Diamyd Medical (DMYD B; Nasdaq First North Growth Market) are proud to announce their collaboration to significantly improve the scientific community’s insight into type 1 diabetes (T1D) through Diamyd Medical’s contribution of fully anonymized data from a European Phase III trial to the Trial Outcome Markers Initiative (TOMI) T1D integrated database. The Phase III trial evaluated the use of the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®, an antigen-specific immunotherapy based on the auto-antigen GAD (glutamic acid decarboxylase), to induce immunological tolerance and stop the autoimmune destruction of insulin producing cells. The Data Contribution Agreement (DCA) between Diamyd Medical and C-Path will allow for this unique set of fully anonymized clinical trial data to be integrated into an ever-growing list of committed trial data sets within the TOMI-T1D project.
