The systematic and simultaneous determination of markers of functional beta cell mass and immune status allows stratification according to the stage of the pathogenic process rather than according to a late metabolic consequence of this process [ Time Frame: 48 months ]

Beta Cell Function in (Pre) Type 1 Diabetes
Beta Cell Function in (Pre) Type 1 Diabetes
This study will establish criteria indicating short-term loss of beta cell mass and therefore accelerated progression towards type 1 diabetes.
This study will establish criteria indicating short-term loss of beta cell mass and therefore accelerated progression towards type 1 diabetes. These criteria may help to determine the time point and type of prevention may contribute to the composition of homogeneous groups of study subjects (based on residual beta cell mass, homogeneous risk of beta cell destruction during intervention) and may lead to the identification of functional markers that could be used as surrogate endpoints. This may reduce the number of subjects needed to treat as well as the follow-up time necessary to study significant effects of the test substance.

    • Ab.-positives (positive for at least 2 different Abs. (IAA, GADA and/or ICA) and/or persistently Ab.-positive for 1 of these Abs;
    • persistently Ab.-negatives.
  • 40 type 1 diabetes patients with the following criteria will be studied: 1) aged 12-39 years; 2) < 4 weeks of insulin treatment; 3) auto-Ab.-positive; 4) polyuria since < 6 months; 5) < 10% weight loss over the last 6 months; 6) informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Having received antidepressant medications during the last 6 months
  • Treatment with immune modulating or diabetogenic medication (such as corticosteroids)
  • Presently participating in another clinical study
  • History of any illness that, in the opinion of the investigator, might confound the results of the study or pose additional risks to the subjects
