Research Studies

Risk Screening

Pathway to Prevention

If you have a relative with T1D, you’re in a unique position to help us learn more about the disease and how to stop it. The first step is to sign up for Pathway to Prevention screening to determine your risk of developing T1D.

Prevention Study

Abatacept

TrialNet is testing the drug abatacept to see if it can delay or prevent progression of early stage T1D (stage 1 to stage 2) and ultimately prevent clinical diagnosis (stage 3). In earlier studies for people newly diagnosed (stage 3), abatacept helped slow down disease progression.

Longterm

Long-Term Investigative Follow-Up in TrialNet (LIFT)

Once your study ends, we're still here for you. Participant monitoring and continued involvement helps us learn more about T1D.
