Joslin Diabetes Center
Clinical trials are studies designed to find new and better ways to treat patients with diabetes. The physicians at the University of Maryland Joslin Diabetes Center are currently conducting the clinical trials listed below.
For more information on any of these clinical trials, or to inquire about participating, call: 410-328-7254 or 1-888-JOSLIN8 (1-888-567-5468)
1. Clinical Trial Detail - Genetics of Pancreatic Function
Genetics of Pancreatic Function in the Development of Diabetes
Find out whether some people are more likely to get diabetes than others by studying their genes.
Kristi Silver, M.D.
Sampling of blood sample (fingerstick) to
Between ages of 18 & 45 years
Generally good health
The first part of the study involves one brief (15 minute) visit to collect a blood sample for genotyping. The second part of the study involves 2 separate visits, the first lasting approximately 4 hours and the second lasting approximately 6 hours. During the second part of the study, volunteers will undergo a test for diabetes (2 hour test), measurements of body fat via X-ray, and measurements of insulin production by the pancreas. Financial compensation provided for time.

2. Clinical Trial Detail: PPAR
Pharmacogenomics of Thiazolidinediones
To study individual response to an insulin-sensitizing medicine in people who are pre-diabetic or non-diabetic.
Soren Snitker, M.D., Ph.D.
Between ages of 35 & 70 years, Caucasian, generally healthy
Approximately three months of treatment with diabetes medicine (pioglitazone ACTOS), followed by 10-week weight-loss program. Four to six visits in initial three-month treatment. Weekly visits for weight-loss program. Financial compensation provided for time.

3. Clinical Trial Detail - GDO
Genetics of Diabetes and Obesity
Study genes that may contribute to the development of diabetes and obesity.

Participants can include ANYONE (those with diabetes, those without diabetes, those who are overweight, those who do not have weight problems).
One brief visit to collect blood sample and complete a short questionnaire. Through participation in this study, a person may qualify for other studies that research particular genotypes.
