On-line Diabetes Resources

Part 4: Universities, Hospitals, M.D.'s, and Research Web Sites

By David Mendosa

Last Update: January 18, 2006

This Web page brings together in one place descriptions of and links to only those Web pages of universities, hospitals, MDs, and research dealing with diabetes, but is linked to the 15 other On-line Diabetes Resources pages dealing with other Web pages, other parts of the Internet, and other on-line services. Those links that I think are especially valuable are marked in red.

Diabetes Prevention Trials

The Diabetes Prevention Trial is a national study to test if it's possible to prevent Type 1 diabetes. This DPT-1 study is still recruiting for its oral insulin study. The injected insulin study (a separate study, but nevertheless the other half of the DPT-1) reported out in 2001 and was not successful. The URLs include
http://www.niddk.nih.gov/patient/dpt_1/dpt_1.htm and
Stanford University's School of Medicine at
http://www-med.stanford.edu/school/pediatrics/dpt1/

A study to prevent type 2 diabetes, called the Diabetes Prevention Program, has been concluded. It reported out a year early in August 2001 because its findings strongly conclude that type 2 diabetes can be delayed and possibly prevented by either lifestyle changes or medication.The URL is
http://www.preventdiabetes.com/

  1. The Translational Pain Research Group at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts is under the direction of Dr. Christine N. Sang. It conducts a variety of studies to treat painful diabetic neuropathy. The URL is

  3. TRIGR stands for Trial to Reduce Insulin-Dependent Diabetes in the Genetically at Risk. It is a multinational clinical trial aimed at reducing the incidence of Type 1 diabetes in children. More than 40 centers in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia will be involved in TRIGR. They are recruiting about 6000 families with a history of type 1 diabetes and expecting a baby. When babies are weaned from breastfeeding, they will receive infant formulas that contain no, or a reduced amount of, intact foreign food proteins typically found in baby formulas. TRIGR will enroll babies from across 17 countries. Recruitment will span two years, with follow-up for 10 years. It will investigate potential environmental factors, specifically the early introduction of cow's milk into the baby's diet. Participating institutions in the U.S. are located in Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh, Ponce, Puerto Rico, Seattle, and St. Louis. The URL is
