To date, 78% hadn’t, and there were many questions about it, so we’re sharing some details about the program and how it can help further studies for T1D. Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet is […]


T1D Exchange, the first program of Unitio, has recently presented data at the American Diabetes Association examining diabetes management and glycemic outcomes among twins concordant for T1D. All 64 patient participants are part of the T1D Exchange Clinic Registry, which is funded by the Helmsley Charitable Trust. Both identical (monozygotic) and fraternal (dizygotic) twins were […]
