I just joined this group. Do any of you have a recent update on your research experiences?

Hey, Susie. Are you involved in research for an islet transplant study? If so, give us some news or links to such research. It sounds like the most progressive type of research out there.

Still looking for Type 1's who are involved in the islet transplant studies.

You're welcome, Frank.

A site for anyone interested in participating in medical research who hasn't found it yet:


Appear to TRY to list all the clinical trials in the world that have reached a certain stage.

Thanks for the links, Robert. It's funny how I have come to depend on research. When I finish one study it's like being cut from the umbilical cord. Tomorrow I'm doing this one-day study where several diabetics will go up to Leadville (10,000 feet) to test a meter at altitude. I'm looking forward to meeting other diabetics in person and talking shop. Plus, the whole notion has a religious quality about it (bloodletting rituals, pilgrimage, etc.). I'll try to post some photos in the next few days.

I've found two clinical trials any of you with type 1 may be interested in:



The second one also hopes to later have clinical trials for the same treatment on various other autoimmune conditions.

I have type 2, so neither is suitable for me.

Correction - now looks like its adding them to the right end, but then sending out email messages about the OLDEST comments from the same user as the latest ne comments.

Is the web site now adding new comments to the wrong end of the comments list?

Do any of you want to let your computers help the genetic research relates to diabetes?


I've had my computers helping them for probably at least a year.

I'm still looking for other BOINC projects related to diabetes research; there are several for protein folding that will eventually help medical research in general, but not trying to do anything especially for diabetes.
