We are now supporting a study looking at what the immune system is doing in people very newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
Exploration of the peripheral immune system in subjects with New Onset T1 Diabetes (NOT1D)
This study aims to gain a better understanding of the processes that may lead to the immune system’s destruction of insulin producing beta cells, which help to control blood sugar levels. This study involves taking a biopsy (a sample of tissue taken from the body in order to examine it more closely) from a lymph node found in the groin area.
Eligibility to take part
The study is looking for male and female volunteers aged 18-40 who have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the last 8 weeks.
What will I be asked to do?
The study involves attending one study visit and two follow up visits which can be performed by a telephone call. You will receive compensation for your travel expenses. You will be reimbursed £300 for your time and inconvenience.
Recruiting site locations
University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
