ViaCyte, Inc. Receives Clearance from Health Canada for Diabetes Clinical Trial

ViaCyte, Inc. received a No Objection Letter from Health Canada providing clearance to proceed with sites in Canada for the company's Phase 1/2 clinical trial of its VC-01TM product candidate. The VC-01 product candidate is currently being evaluated in patients with type 1 diabetes who have minimal to no insulin-producing beta cell function. The location and enrollment start date of the first Canadian clinical trial site have not yet been disclosed. The Investigational New Drug application for the Phase 1/2 trial, called STEP ONE, or Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of VC-01 Combination Product in Type 1, was allowed by the US Food and Drug Administration in August 2014. The STEP ONE trial was launched in September 2014 at UC San Diego Health System, with the support of the UC San Diego Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center and under the direction of Principal Investigator Robert Henry, MD. The first implant was performed in October 2014. In addition to determining the safety of the product candidate in these patients, STEP ONE is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the VC-01 product candidate in replacing the lost endocrine function that is central to the disease. In an open-label, dose-escalating format, ViaCyte expects to enroll approximately 40 patients in the study at multiple clinical sites.
