Waking Beta Cells

Waking Beta Cells

We are recruiting Seattle-area adults to test whether two drugs, liraglutide and golimumab, can temporarily “wake-up” beta-cells in type 1 diabetes patients with longstanding diabetes.

Participant Eligibility

You may be eligible if you:
• were diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at least three years ago
• are age 18 through 50
• live in the Seattle area
• are in good general health

If you are found to be eligible, you will visit our Seattle clinic three or four times during a two-month period, and administer the study drug at home between visits. You may choose to participate in the liraglutide study, golimumab study, or both (given a 90-day washout period between the first and second study drugs).
