    • Those interested in participating in the Diagnode-3 study who meet the criteria (diagnosed in the last 6 months and between 12 to 29 years old) will be screened for the specific genotype at their initial study visit.
    • Please help to spread the word because the study needs twice as many people to be screened to find the 50% of type 1’s with the HLA genotype.┬áThank you on behalf of Diamyd!

  1. This was an amazing FIRST episode.Amber. imagine if we fell within the criteria! I’m currently in the process of being part of an encapsulated islet cells implant .. just waiting for all the various doctors reports to give the research company a thumbs up, but am excited to be part of a growing community of fellow T1D’d trying to help develop better health outcomes for future generations. Unlike the wording too of the reverse vaccine (maybe writing that wrong, so anyone reading this comment .. you’ve got to listen to this interview with Ulf Hannelius). I’ll be spreading the word on your podcast!
