Stiris Research Announces First Patients Dosed in Zucara’s Phase 1b Hypoglycemic Clamp Trial

London, Ontario — 28 July 2021 —

Stiris Research Inc. (“Stiris”), an entrepreneurial clinical trial management company focused on the management of Phase I-IIIB trials, today announced that the first patients have been dosed in a Phase 1b pharmacodynamic evaluation study of ZT-01 in Type 1 Diabetics (T1D) for sponsor Zucara Therapeutics Inc (“Zucara”).

Stiris is honoured to be working with Zucara on their clinical trial program for ZT-01.  This study will enroll approximately 25 T1D patients and will include hypoglycemic clamp procedures to define the safety and tolerability of this investigational product, as well as assess ZT-01’s effect on glucagon in this population.

“A once-daily therapy to prevent insulin-induced hypoglycemia could change the lives of many people with T1D. We are excited to help improve health outcomes in patients with diabetes and look forward to the study results,” said Urszula Bartlomiejska, Project Manager, Stiris Research, Inc.

Stiris and Zucara recently completed a single and multiple ascending dose Phase 1 trial, in which ZT-01 was safe and well-tolerated.
