New Phase III Trial Starts: Otelixizumab from Tolerx

Good news! A new Phase III trial has started to test a honeymoon cure for type-1 diabetes!
You can read about it (from a technical point of view) here:

Basically, this is a CD3 targeting drug, very similar toTeplizumab by MacroGenics. It is only being tested on honeymoon phase diabetics, but remember my hopeful comments on honeymoon cures becoming cures for everyone. This drug has been in phase II trials for a while, as has Teplizumab.
