About Diamyd Medical
Diamyd Medical was founded in 1996 and is active in the field of pharmaceutical development. Diamyd Medical is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. The Company’s development project consists of the protein GAD for the treatment and prevention of autoimmune diabetes. Two Swedish researcher-initiated Phase II studies are ongoing. One study evaluates whether GAD can prevent type 1 diabetes in children who are at high risk of developing the disease and one study evaluates whether GAD in combination with relatively high doses of vitamin D and ibuprofen can preserve the body's own ability to control the blood sugar level in children and adolescents newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Diamyd Medical also has holdings in the gene therapy company Periphagen Holdings, Inc. (USA), the vaccine company Protein Sciences Corporation (USA) and the diagnostics company Mercodia AB (Sweden).
