Be a part of T1D research by joining the Pathway to Prevention!
By screening blood relatives of those with T1D, TrialNet looks at ways to prevent or delay T1D. Family members are important because they are at 10-15 times greater risk for developing diabetes than people with no family history.
This study is confidential and at no cost to you!
TrialNet will offer NEW screenings at the 2020 JDRF TypeOneNation Summit.
To participate you must be 2 1/2 to 45 years of age AND have a brother, sister, child, or parent with T1D
2 1/2 to 20 years of age AND have a cousin, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, half-sibling, or grandparent with T1D.
You cannot have ever taken insulin or other diabetes medications or currently be on any immunosuppressive therapies.
The screening involves a small, non-fasting blood sample (a numbing agent is available to make the blood draw more comfortable.) Those participants with elevated autoantibodies may qualify for T1D prevention studies.
