JDRF clinical trials that are recruiting now are shown below.

Hypoglycaemia Awareness Restoration Programme (HARPdoc)

Professor Stephanie Amiel, King’s College London

Professor Stephanie Amiel

Prof. Amiel will be carrying out a clinical trial to test a new Hypoglycaemia Awareness Restoration Programme (HARPdoc). HARPdoc is a treatment programme based on existing talking therapies, which has been designed to improve management of hypo unawareness.

To test how effective HARPdoc is, Prof. Amiel is recruiting participants with type 1 diabetes who are having trouble recognising hypos. The participants will complete the therapy programme, which will be delivered by diabetes nurses and dietitians. Prof. Amiel will then look at changes in behaviour and measure the difference in the number of severe hypo episodes participants experienced before and after the therapy programme.

Criteria for taking part include:

  • Over 18 years old
  • Having lived with type 1 diabetes for more than four years
  • Experiencing problematic hypoglycaemia for at least a year

How to get involved in this clinical trial:
