  Purpose

Autoimmunity is the main cause of diabetes type 1 and an important factor as cause of Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA). Recently, research has found that being deficient of T-reg cells is an important cause of autoimmunity. The study hypothesis are:

  1. Patients with newly found diabetes type 1 have less T-reg than healthy.
  2. Patients with newly found diabetes type 1 have less T-reg than patients with long duration of the illness.
  3. The number of T-reg is negative associated with HLA-risk-haplotype.
  4. The number of T-reg is negative associated with LADA.
  5. Differences relating to inflammatory cytokines will be seen among patients with newly found diabetes type 1, but not among others.

Groups/Cohorts
Diabetes type 1 older than 10 years
Blood samples will be taken from 10 patients with diabetes type 1 older than 10 years and 10 healthy age-and sexmatched controls.
Newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes
Blood samples will be taken from 10 patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes and 10 healthy age-and sexmatched controls.
LADA
Blood samples will be taken from 10 patients with LADA and 10 healthy age-and sexmatched controls.

Detailed Description:

Research has worked out that b-cells are being destroyed by cytokines released from inflammatory cells. One hypothesis in that T-reg is a cause of autoimmunity, and that T-reg concentrations are low in patients with newly diagnosed diabetes type 1.

Blood samples will be taken from 10 patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes, Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) and type 1 diabetes older than 10 years and the same amount of samples from healthy, age- and sex-matched blood donors. Markers of autoimmune diabetes will be analyzed.
