A multiple ascending dose trial investigating safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of NNC0361-0041 administered subcutaneously to patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus


This study is looking at 48 adult patients that have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes within the past 4 years and giving them subcutaneous injections weekly of NNC0361-0041 plasmid to assess the safety and tolerability. This is a phase1 study that will enrolled over a 28 week period.
