Ongoing Clinical Trials

Diabetes Prevention Trial for Type 1 Diabetes (DPT-1)

The DPT is aimed at determining whether it is possible to prevent or delay the onset of type 1 diabetes in individuals determined to be at immunologic, genetic, and/or metabolic risk. The program also supports the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications study, an epidemiologic follow-up study of the subjects previously enrolled in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT).

Type 2 Diabetes Clinical Trials Program

The Type 2 Diabetes Clinical Trials Program supports large, multi-center clinical trials conducted under cooperative agreements or contracts. One primary prevention trial is underway. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is focused on testing lifestyle and pharmacological intervention strategies in individuals at genetic and metabolic risk for developing type 2 diabetes to prevent or delay the onset of this disease. At this time, the recruitment goals have been reached and new patients are not being enrolled.
