The following are studies for which the research teams are using ADDRESS-2 to find and contact candidates


The Effect of Abatacept on the Immune System in Type 1 Diabetes

Currently recruiting

Summary
This study aims to gain a better understanding of the immune processes that lead to the destruction of insulin producing beta cells.  Participants will be given the drug Abatacept for 6 months, in addition to their regular diabetes medication.  They will have blood tests before, during and after treatment (6 visits in all) so that we can analyse their immune cells.

We are looking for male and female volunteers aged 18-45 who have been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the last 100 days.

 Exploration of the peripheral immune system in subjects with New Onset T1 Diabetes (NOT1D)

Currently recruiting

Summary
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.

Recruiting to 8th April 2018

Summary
Observational study for adults with type 1 diabetes aged 18-40 years, within 12 months of diagnosis.

Aim
To study which blood cells in the immune system are involved in the destructive process that occurs to the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas and how it happens.

A cross-sectional study of young-onset diabetes in two UK ethnic groups (MYDIABETES)Research nurse at PC

Recruiting to 1st January 2018

Summary
Observational study for children and adults diagnosed with diabetes before the age of 30 years and from the following ethic groups: white British/European, South Asian or African/Caribbean.

Aim
To describe in detail the types of diabetes in people in the UK diagnosed before the age of 30 years. There are different types of diabetes and it can be challenging to work out what type someone has, particularly if they are young and from a minority ethnic group. We aim to find out how common the type of diabetes known as Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) is in UK minority ethnic groups. Data from the study will help physicians to diagnose the different types of diabetes better and to ensure that people receive the correct treatment for their type of diabetes.
