DiabeteS AUtoimmuNity WithdRawn In New OnSEt and In Established Patients (SUNRISE) A Phase 2 Multi-Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Safety of TOL-3021 in Patients with New Onset or Established Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus


Do you have Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)?

  • Was your T1D diagnosed within the last 5 years?
  • Are you between 18 and 40 years old?
  • Is your HbA1c about 7.6% or lower
  • Are you on insulin therapy?

If you have answered yes to all of these questions, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial to evaluate the safety of an investigational drug called TOL-3021 and whether TOL-3021 can stop the immune system from attacking beta cells in the pancreas of individuals with T1D and thus help the pancreas make insulin.

What else should I know?

  • 1-year study with 2-year follow-up
  • Randomized placebo-controlled with 2 in 3 chances to get TOL-3021 and 1 in 3 chances to get placebo (inactive ingredient)
  • Weekly injections for 52 weeks (self-administered at home starting with week 5)
  • 18 visits (mostly monthly) during first year; 4 visits during 2-year follow-up
  • Dexcom G6 CGM and all supplies provided at no cost for required glucose monitoring through 52 weeks
  • Study visits and tests provided at no cost
  • Gift card for each scheduled and completed visit
