Oral Insulin Fails to Prevent Type 1 Diabetes

On Sunday, June 15, 2003, Dr. Jay Skyler, Lead Investigator for the DPT-1, announced the results of the oral insulin arm of the DPT-1. As happened with injected insulin, results showed that taking oral insulin does not alter the chances of developing type 1 individuals at high risk. However, once again it was possible to identify those individuals at risk. (See Injected Insulin Fails to Prevent Type 1 Diabetes.) Researchers will continue to seek other means of possible prevention.
