Pediatric Diabetes Registry Reveals T1D Increase
In order to prevent and ultimately achieve a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D), we must first learn more about the disease. One trend that has revealed itself in recent years is an accelerating rate of T1D, especially among younger children. Last year, the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study reported...

T1D Rise Among Youth Highlights the Importance of Renewed Research Funding
In June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released results from their latest SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study . The data revealed a 23 percent growth in type 1 diabetes (T1D) prevalence, between 2001 and 2009, in Americans under age 20...

MRI Scanning Technique Predicts T1D Onset
In a recent study published in the current issue of Nature Immunology , a JDRF-funded team led by Dr. Diane Mathis from the Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital developed a technique that uses MRI and nanoparticles for predicting type 1 diabetes (T1D). In the study, which was conducted...

Study Helps Explain Activity of Anti-CD3 in Treating or Preventing Type 1 Diabetes
JDRF-funded scientists at Yale University recently found a mechanism of action by which teplizumab, an anti-CD3 antibody may be working as an immune therapy for T1D. Currently, once T1D starts to develop, there’s no intervention developed to stop it. The immune system slowly and inevitably kills...

Diabetes in Action: New visualization technique allows researchers to see the destruction of insulin-producing beta cells
Last week, JDRF-funded researchers from the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology in San Diego, California announced that they had created the first 3-dimensional movies depicting the destruction of insulin-producing beta cells – the process that ultimately leads to type 1 diabetes (T1D...

Newly Discovered Blood Test May Help Identify Type 1 Diabetes Before Symptoms Appear
As new cases of type 1 diabetes (T1D) increase worldwide , JDRF has continued to focus on preventing T1D in those at risk. By the time symptoms of T1D appear, however, the destruction of insulin producing beta cells may have already been occurring for some time. In order to effectively prevent the disease...
