Type 1 Diabetes Clinical Trials

Current clinical trials for adults with type 1 diabetes are exploring treatments to restore beta cell function, stem cell therapy, and new medications for kidney disease. See if you're eligible to enroll.

Researchers are constantly evaluating new treatments and technologies that could help people with type 1 diabetes live happy, healthier lives. 

Participating in a clinical trial can go a long way toward advancing treatments and health outcomes for people with diabetes. 

Here are several trials specifically recruiting people with type 1 diabetes:

1. Join a Type 1 Diabetes Trial Testing Insulin-Producing Cells

This study is investigating whether Vertex’s VX-264, an encapsulated stem cell therapy, can safely restore insulin-producing islet cell function in people with type 1 diabetes without the need for lifelong immunosuppressive medication.

2. Trial Investigates Promising New Beta Cell Treatment

A clinical trial is recruiting people recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes to see if the investigational drug Diamyd preserves insulin-producing cells as well as improves time in range.

3. Eating Disorder Prevention in Young People with Type 1 Diabetes

A global study is investigating the effectiveness of an eating disorder prevention program to help younger people with type 1 diabetes reduce body image concerns and improve blood glucose control.

4. Join a trial researching a new treatment for kidney disease in type 1 diabetes

The FINE-ONE trial, which is investigating Kerendia (finerenone) in adults with type 1 diabetes, will begin in March 2024. Despite the high prevalence of kidney disease in people with type 1 diabetes, there are few available treatments approved in this population.
