Immune Function During Various Stages of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Sub-Titles: STAT5 and PGS2 Dysfunction in Type 1 Diabetes: Immune Function and the Progression to Type 1 Diabetes Pathogenesis: Mechanisms and Characterization of Regulatory T Cell Defect

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the genetics and immune function of blood cells, diet, and viruses in insulin dependent diabetes. Collecting such information may lead to improved ways of treating insulin dependent diabetes as well as a possible cure or prevention. For more information about this study, contact Clive Wasserfall by phone, 352-273-9298, or email, wasserfa@pathology.ufl.edu
