Diamyd(R) Phase III Study Approved for Younger Patients in the US
Date:6/8/2009

STOCKHOLM, June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Diamyd Medical reported today that the company has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to include children with type 1 diabetes from 10 years of age in the company's Phase III study with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd(R).

Diamyd Medical is conducting two parallel phase III studies, one in Europe and one in the USA, comprising a total of 640 patients. The objective of the studies is to evaluate the ability of the Diamyd(R) vaccine to halt or delay the autoimmune attack on the body's insulin-producing cells, thereby preserving the body's own ability to produce insulin in children and adolescents with recent-onset type 1 diabetes.

The European study, which is being conducted in nine countries, is approved for patients between 10 and 20 years of age, whilst the US study so far has been approved only for patients 16 to 20 years, an age group with few recent-onset type 1 diabetes patients. The company is, with the new approval, allowed to begin enrollment of children from 10 years of age in the US phase III study.

"This is a big step forward giving us the opportunity to accelerate patient recruitment in the US," says Elisabeth Lindner, President and CEO of Diamyd Medical. "We are pleased that the approval comes now in connection with the world's largest diabetes conference, the ADA's 69th Scientific Sessions, which is currently ongoing in New Orleans."

The company will now, in pace with Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals in USA, increase the number of American pediatric clinics in the study. The application for market approval is, as before, planned for spring 2011.
