NIHR part- funded trial to investigate new treatment which could reduce insulin injections to just once or twice a week 

News Content

A clinical trial is underway for a potential new treatment for type 1 diabetes that could eventually mean patients are able to reduce insulin treatment from several times a day to only once or twice a week. The new treatment is a direct result of research to understand the genetics of the disease.

The trial is being funded by the Wellcome Trust and JDRF, the type 1 diabetes charity,  combined with funding from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), a UK government body that coordinates and funds research for the National Health Service.
