Type 1 Diabetes Prevention /Immunology




Professor David Dunger, dp223@medschl.cam.ac.uk (UK Study coordinator)


INNODIA is an international consortium with academic institutions, healthcare teams, scientific and industrial partners, and patient organisations which have joined forces to significantly improve the understanding of type 1 Diabetes and to pave the way to novel therapeutic options to prevent and cure this disease.

Aim: To develop a European infrastructure for the recruitment, detailed clinical measurements and samples of a large group of newly diagnosed patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and unaffected family members (UFM), generating an unrivalled resource for T1D discovery science.

ITAD (Ultra-low Dose IL2 (Proleukin) in Children and Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes)


Proffessor John Todd


The purpose of this trial is to assess the safety, tolerability and optimal dose of Proleukin in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes, through study of the effects on the immune system and metabolic parameters. Note this trial was originally called DILTY

Start Date: Spring/2018
End Date: TBC

Professor Colin Dayan, dayancm@cardiff.ac.uk


This is a double blind Phase 2 study to assess the safety and efficacy of Ustekinemab in children & adolescents aged 12 with new onset T1D. Participants will be given S/C Ustekinemab at weeks 0, 4, and 12 & every 8 weeks for 1 year. There will be 8 study visits over 1 year, 3 of which will be at home. Mixed meal tolerance tests will be performed at 0, 26 and 52 weeks. All participants will be offered CGMS using the Freestyle Librae system. An information video will be available at www.type1diabetesresearch.org.uk

Start Date: Spring/2018
End Date: 2022

AdDIT Follow Up:

Tracking of Risk for diabetic nephropathy and cardiovascular disease in young people with type 1 diabetes recruited to the AdDIT Study


Professor David Dunger, dbd25@cam.ac.uk


The AdDIT follow up study, is following up the AdDIT cohort to collect data to see if more relevant effects, such as those on direct manifestations of cardiovascular disease (CVD), renal and retinal disease, are most likely to become apparent in the longer term, during early adult life. Thus, long-term follow-up of the whole AdDIT cohort will allow the characterisation of rates of vascular complications during early adulthood reflecting a potential ‘metabolic memory’ of glycaemic and non-glycaemic exposures as well as treatment effects during pubertal years.
