Pitt+Me TrialNET Pathway to Prevention 1-17


STUDY BASICS

Are you the parent of a child ages 1-17 who has a relative with type 1 diabetes (T1D)? If so, your child may be able to be screened for T1D studies, with the goal of preventing T1D in the future. With a blood test, doctors can determine if an individual is at risk for T1D years before symptoms occur. Those at risk for T1D may be able to join studies that may prevent or delay T1D.


STUDY PURPOSE

Researchers are screening children at risk of developing type 1 diabetes to learn more about the development of type 1 diabetes and to find ways to delay or prevent it.


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD?

•    Between 1 and 17
•    Have a relative who has Type 1 diabetes


WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

This screening involves at least one visit to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC or a lab that is closer to your home.

Your child will have a small amount of blood taken for this screening.
