TrialNet - Type 1 Diabetes Research

trailnet logo

A Pathway to Prevention

TrialNet is screening relatives of people with Type 1diabetes to find out if these family members are at risk for developing diabetes.

You may be eligible for screening if you are 45 years of age or younger with a parent, sibling or child with Type 1 diabetes, or 20 years of age or younger with a niece, nephew, aunt, uncle, grandparent, cousin, half-brother or half-sister with Type 1 diabetes.

 

What is required?

A simple blood test.

You will learn the results of your first blood test in four to six weeks.

If you learn you are at risk for developing Type 1 diabetes, additional tests will be offered to estimate your chances of developing Type 1 diabetes.

Study of Delay/Prevention of Type 1 Diabetes

Abatacept
We have a new prevention study that is testing whether abatacept can help to delay or prevent Type 1 diabetes.

Oral Insulin
TrialNet is studying whether oral insulin (insulin taken by mouth, not injection) helps to delay or prevent Type 1 diabetes.

For more information about screening or prevention studies, please visit the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet site or take look through our Natural History Study Participant Handbook
