RECRUITMENT HAS NOW CLOSED. INIT II is now in follow up phase and we are no longer conducting screening blood tests.
Anyone who is aged between 4 and 30 and has type 1 diabetes in his or her family can potentially participate in the Type 1 Diabetes Prevention Trial. Get involved today and write yourself into the medical history books!
ONLY 1 in 50 relatives who have the blood test for antibodies will be eligible to participate. That is why ALL RELATIVES aged between 4 and 30 are urged to have the blood test.
Are you eligible?
Do you or your child have a first-degree (mother, father, brother, sister, son, daughter) or second-degree (grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, half-sister, half-brother) relative with type 1 diabetes?
Was your relative diagnosed with type 1 diabetes before age 40?
Are you or your child aged between 4 and 30 years?
If you answered yes to all of these questions then a simple blood test for antibodies can determine the likelihood of you also developing type 1 diabetes. If the test shows that you are at high risk of developing type 1 diabetes you may be eligible to participate in the trial.
