JDRF Launches Online Clinical Service

JDRF successfully launched Clinical Trials Connection (www.trials.jdrf.org), an innovative online service to help people with type 1 diabetes and their families easily find information about clinical trials on treatments and cures for type 1 diabetes and its complications. With more diabetes trials than ever before, Clinical Trials Connection simplifies the process of finding studies that people might want to take part in. The website enables people to search the National Institutes of Health’s database of diabetes trials, including JDRF-funded studies. The service offers users many benefits, including lists of all studies that match their preferences and characteristics; information for the researchers conducting each trial, so users can contact them directly; and automatic e-mail updates.
