Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which a person's pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone that manages the body's blood sugar. People with type 1 diabetes must inject insulin several times a day or continually infuse insulin through a pump.
Approximately 1 million Americans have type 1 diabetes, and 10,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. People with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for complications including heart disease, vascular disease (diseases of your arteries, veins, or lymph vessels or blood disorders), and kidney disease. However, people with type 1 diabetes who maintain tight control of their blood sugar may experience far fewer complications and live long, productive lives.
Clinical research doctors are currently enrolling people with type 1 diabetes for a clinical research study. This study will evaluate an investigational insulin study drug added to your current basal insulin treatment.
If you have type 1 diabetes and take insulin to manage it, you may qualify for this clinical research study. Qualified study participants may receive the investigational study drug and study-related care and counseling at no cost, with compensation for your time and travel.
Take the online study questionnaire now to see if you or your child may qualify for this clinical research study.
Health insurance is not required. Additional criteria will be assessed by the study doctor to confirm your eligibility.
