Scientists around the world are working to find a way to prevent Type 1 diabetes. In the United States, the largest study is the Diabetes Prevention Trial - Type 1, or simply the DPT-1. Family members of kids or adults who have Type 1 diabetes are encouraged to talk with their endocrinologist about the study. Many more people must be screened before the study will have enough participants.
