					LCT accepts revised conditions for
Diabecell trial in NZ

Cell-based therapeutics maker Living Cell Technologies said that
the company has accepted a preliminary decision from the New
Zealand Minister of Health, Mr Tony Ryall, to issue a new conditional
authorization for its New Zealand phase I/IIa clinical trial of Diabecell
for insulin dependent diabetes.
The Minister’s letter states that “the proposed condition that would
require (LCT) to amend the inclusion criteria of (LCT’s) study to
limit participation in the study to patients with brittle diabetes who
suffer from significant metabolic instability is essential to ensure that
the study complies with international guidelines, which require that
participants obtain maximum benefit possible from their participation
in the study”.
The company said that the clinical protocol for the New Zealand
diabetes trial has already been amended according to the proposed
new conditions from the Minister.
