Brief Summary

Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune process resulting in a selective destruction of the pancreatic insulin-secreting beta-cell. DiaPep277® is a small, lyophilized powder containing 24 Amino-acids. We have proved in former studies that DiaPep277® can slow down beta cells destruction in the pancreas and therefore decelerate the progress of Diabetes.

The objective of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of administrating DiaPep277® in type 1 diabetes patients.
