Teplizumab to delay type 1 diabetes onset
The primary findings of this TrialNet-based study of teplizumab showed that a 14-day course of the anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody significantly delayed onset of type 1 diabetes in high-risk people with two or more autoantibodies.
The researchers hope to report new mechanistic and metabolic data at the 55th EASD Annual Meeting (EASD 2019):
