This is to inform potential applicants that the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet plans to expand its clinical trial network of Affiliate sites by identifying institutions that are prepared to serve the role of a Major Affiliate . Major Affiliates will provide direct TrialNet presence in communities that do not now have a Clinical Center and will serve as clinical sites (treatment and follow-up) for TrialNet studies. Major Affiliates will receive direct infrastructure funding for TrialNet activities as well as reimbursement for patient care costs via a subcontract with the George Washington University TrialNet Coordinating Center.
TrialNet is a network of medical centers aimed at studying the development, prevention and early treatment of type 1 diabetes. TrialNet is conducting multiple clinical trials with investigators from 18 Clinical Centers in North America , Europe, and Australia. The TrialNet Natural History Study will provide information about risk factors associated with the development of type 1 diabetes in relatives of affected individuals. TrialNet is also performing intervention studies aimed at preservation of insulin-producing cells in individuals at risk for type 1 diabetes as well as in persons newly diagnosed with diabetes.
