FDA approves trial for type 1 diabetes treatment by Ben-Gurion U. and U. Colorado

e levels to patients with diabetes.

According to Dr. Lewis, "We found that targeting multiple inflammatory molecules by using a safe non-toxic and non-steroidal drug, we can block inflammation so effectively that we literally modify the immune response, which facilitates transplant acceptance to treat diabetes."

The study protocol provides for AAT administration during an eight-week treatment period in an initial group of 15 individuals with recently diagnosed diabetes, potentially expanding to up to 50 patients. As in most other diabetes trials, enrolled patients will be monitored for two years.

"Dr. Lewis is at the forefront of research in his field to find a treatment for type 1 diabetes and we're very excited that BGU is exporting its pioneering research once again to the U.S.," says Doron Krakow, executive vice president of American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. "We wish Eli success with the trials and hope that his findings lead to a cure for a disease that affects millions of people around the world."
