Regarding Teplizimab (www.clinicaltrials.gov)
If the drugs (like the one that Lily bought from Macrogenics) are released - how will that be? In a pill form, as an IV infusion (how it was trialed)
It was extremely effective for my son. I'm wondering how effective it was for other children in the study. It is very difficult to get that information. Have there been side effects for other children? I understand they have progressed to placebo and dose ranging versions of drug administration. If the drug worked as an IV how will they release it to the public, how long does the FDA take to approve it?
My son was diagnosed with T1 08/2007, took the IV infusion of Teplizumab 10/2007, went off insulin 11/2007 and hasn't taken anything since. Last HgA1C was 6%. The numbers seem good, but have there been other cases of "honeymoons" lasting 15 months with 0 insulin 0 meds?
