Children with the most severe form of the disorder need to have their pancreas removed in order to control blood glucose levels.

Singapore - Zealand Pharma and Roche’s Diabetes Care unit will partner on Phase 3 clinical trials assessing dasiglucagon in patients with inherited elevated insulin levels (hyperinsulinism).

Specifically, Zealand will use Roche’s Accu-Chek Combo pump system in the studies, expected to commence in H2, to evaluate the potential for continuous dasiglucagon infusions to prevent hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in up to 50 children with hyperinsulinism.
