[br][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]I came across a clinical trial today at this [url=http://cctn.jdrf.ca/]website[/url] ( [/font][url=http://cctn.jdrf.ca/][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]http://cctn.jdrf.ca/[/font][/url][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"] ) which if you're interested you can also sign up for. This latest study is a 3-week trial where 20 participants will be wearing an insulin pump and CGMS to determine correct basal rates. It's part of a pilot study to test a new algorithm developed at the University Health Network in Toronto that will help doctors determine the optimal basal insulin rates for an individual. The actual study name is called - [/font][font size="2"]<font face="verdana,geneva">Pilot for semi-automated computerized overnight basal rate assessment protocol.[br][br]If you are a Type 1 diabetic - and are interested in participating - go check out the requirments at this [url=http://cctn.jdrf.ca/enrolling.html]link[/url] ( [/font]</font>[url=http://cctn.jdrf.ca/enrolling.html][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]http://cctn.jdrf.ca/enrolling.html[/font][/url][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"] ). I would try applying, but one of the requirements for being in this study are that you have experienced a blood sugar (BG) reading overnight of 1.7mmol/l ( 30 mg/dl) on at least two occasions in the week prior to enrollment. I luckily haven't had a low like that overnight in many years![br][br]Further contact about this study can be made at: [br][/font][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]Toronto General Hospital[br][/font][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"]Contact: Andrej Orszag (Study Coordinator)[br]Tel: (416) 340-4800 ext. 7187[br]Email: [/font][url=mailto:[email protected]][font face="verdana,geneva" size="2"][email protected][/font][/url][br][br]
