I keep two different summaries of the status of clinical trials aimed at curing type-1 diabetes, and I've just updated both of them. So if you want a summary of the whole field, you might try looking at one or both of these:
This is a PDF file (so you can view it on the web), which is a table of all clinical trials aimed at curing type-1 diabetes. From left to right it is organized by phase of clinical trial, so phase-I is on the left, and phase-III on the right. Within each phase are three milestones: Has the trial started? Is it fully enrolled? And have results been reported? From top to bottom are different rows representing different techniques being tried to cure type-1. So there is a row for immunology, a row for encapsulation, a row for inflammation, etc.
This table contains one entry for each treatment which is currently being tested, and is designed to be printed out in black and white on a 3 foot by 4 foot poster. It is very plain, with no graphics at all.
This file is stored on www.box.com, but anyone should be able to see it, here:
or look here:
for the whole directory of material.
Next Expected Milestone
This is a list of all clinical trials currently or recently running aimed at curing type-1 diabetes. My goal with this page is to make it easy, for each clinical trial, to see what research milestones are expected to be completed and when. It can also serve as an TLOD ("too long over due") list of research that isn't reporting the expected results. It also contains the last milestone that a trial reached, so you can see where everyone last was.
This list contains one entry for each clinical trial which is currently underway, or recently was underway. If many trials are being run on the same treatment, then there will be several entries in this list. It is designed to be viewed on a computer monitor, so color is important.
This file is part of my blog, and you can see it here:
I update these files at least once a year. (I try to do it once a quarter.) If you see a mistake or something is missing, please tell me. Thanks.
