ThisDPT-1 study is still recruiting for its oral insulin study. The injected insulin study (a separate study, butnevertheless the other half of the DPT-1) reported out in 2001 and was not successful. The URLs include Universitys School of Medicine at Translational Pain Research Group at the Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, Massachusettsis under the direction of Dr. Christine N. Sang. It conducts a variety of studies to treat painful diabeticneuropathy. stands for Trial to Reduce Insulin-Dependent Diabetes in the Genetically at Risk. It is amultinational clinical trial aimed at reducing the incidence of Type 1 diabetes in children. More than 40centers in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia will be involved in TRIGR. They are recruiting about6000 families with a history of type 1 diabetes and expecting a baby. When babies are weaned frombreastfeeding, they will receive infant formulas that contain no, or a reduced amount of, intact foreignfood proteins typically found in baby formulas. TRIGR will enroll babies from across 17 countries.Recruitment will span two years, with follow-up for 10 years. It will investigate potential environmentalfactors, specifically the early introduction of cows milk into the babys diet. Participating institutions inthe U.S. are located in Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh, Ponce, Puerto Rico, Seattle, and St. Louis. aims to provide information for patients and professionals on research and clinicalcare in genetic types of diabetes.

Genetics of Kidneys in Diabetes (GoKinD) Study is a JDRF research program being conducted in boththe U.S. and Canada.

Half of these individuals will have diabetic kidney disease and half will be free of kidneydisease. The GoKinD Study also seeks to enroll both parents of these individuals. If parents areunavailable, adults with type 1 diabetes may join the study on their own. diabetes is the term that M.R. (Pete) Hayden, M.D., of Camdenton, Missouri, uses for what weusually call type 2 diabetes. Islet amyloid (a scar tissue) forms in the islets of people with type 2diabetes.
