Clinical trials are research studies that test any kind of treatment in people to find out if they are safe and effective. There are three stages of clinical trials, each involving more participants. They are a crucial step in the research pipeline that can only happen once a treatment has been thoroughly tested in cells and animals in the lab, which are known as preclinical trials.
You can learn more about clinical trials on the government’s clinical trials website.
Clicking the tool below will take you to the Antidote website, a digital health company who created and support this tool. You will be asked several questions about you and your health to search which clinical trials you may be able to take part in.
If you can’t find anything suitable, you could ask your doctor if they know of any studies which might be appropriate for you. You can also have a look at the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Be a part of Research website to search for current type 1 diabetes clinical trials.
Volunteering to be part of research is a tremendous help to type 1 diabetes researchers. Without volunteers taking part in these studies, it would not be possible to develop any new therapies for type 1.
“People like Daisy who are taking part in trials now will make living with type 1 easier for themselves and others in the future. It’s about everyone doing a little bit and being part of something so important.”
The UK T1D Research Consortium is funded by JDRF and Diabetes UK. It is a platform recruiting volunteers to join clinical trials of new immunotherapies for type 1.
INNODIA is a platform that recruits Europeans under 45 who were either diagnosed with type 1 in the last six weeks or have a close relative with type 1. They do blood tests to show who is likely to later develop type 1 and invite them to take part in clinical trials of possible treatments.
ADDRESS-2 supports research involving people with type 1 diabetes who want to take part, from the moment they are diagnosed. They help connect people diagnosed in the last six months with researchers running clinical trials.
