Details of the EASD virtual presentations follow:
Oral Presentation Title: “The Simplici-T1 Trial: Activation of Glucokinase by TTP399 Improves Glycaemic Control in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes”
Oral Presentation Title: “Mechanism Matter: Preliminary Evidence That Activation of Glucokinase by TTP399 Does Not Increase Plasma or Urine Ketones in Type 1 Diabetes”
About the Simplici-T1 Study
This Phase 2 learn-and-confirm study was conducted in two parts under a treat-to-target protocol to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TTP399 in T1D patients over 12 weeks of daily dosing following a multi-week insulin optimization and placebo run-in period. Part 1 enrolled 19 patients on both insulin pumps and CGMs. The positive topline results from the learning phase - Part 1 were reported in June 2019. The confirming phase, Part 2, enrolled 85 patients that used either insulin pumps or multiple daily injections of insulin; CGMs were allowed for those patients using the devices for at least three months prior to the start of the study.
