JDRF – Clinical Trials to Advance Therapies for Nephropathy and Cardiovascular Disease in Type 1 Diabetes
Despite advanced technologies to maintain glucose control, long-term complications such as diabetic nephropathy (DN) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are still the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in people with T1D. There is currently a lack of targeted therapies for DN or CVD approved for use by people with T1D, in part because people with T1D are seldom included in drug trials for these diabetic complications. To fill this gap, JDRF invites applications for clinical trials to advance ...

Early detection and targeted prevention strategies could reduce the likelihood of development of a clinical ED. To develop effective approaches to prevention and early intervention models, increased knowledge of the etiology of DEB and ED is needed.

JDRF - Novel Immune Strategies to Enhance Beta Cell Replacement Therapies for T1D
Despite significant progress in the development of alternative renewable sources of insulin producing cells to overcome the shortage of donor tissue, major scientific and technical challenges in overcoming recurring autoimmunity and allogeneic immune rejection remain which must be addressed before beta cell replacement can be widely implemented as a cure for established T1D. The reliance on systemic administration of immunosuppressive drugs to protect the cell graft from the recipient’s immune r...
