JDRF Seeking People With Type 1 Diabetes to Participate in Study

| Apr 1, 2002

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) is seeking participants for a study on the role that genes play in the development of diabetic kidney disease in people with type 1 diabetes. Entitled the "Genetics of Kidneys in Diabetes (GoKindD) Study," it requires participants and their parents to submit blood and urine samples and medical histories.

Participants must be 18 to 54 years old and must fall into one of these two groups: people who have had type 1 diabetes for at least 10 years and have diabetic kidney disease, or those who have had type 1 diabetes for at least 15 years and have not developed diabetic kidney disease. The JDRF hopes to recruit 1,100 adults along with both of their parents for the study, which will be conducted at medical centers throughout the United States and Canada.
