Research & Development Work

At K.I.D.S, our mission is always to ensure that advances in basic science research are rapidly translated to clinical settings so patients benefit from novel therapies. The Department of Clinical Research is conducting a number of important clinical research programs, including those described below:

 

Glucose testing devices

K.I.D.S physicians are using state-of-the-art technologies (such as the glucose sensor, a subcutaneous device that provides continuous readings of blood glucose over three days) to study the blood glucose profiles of patients. Information gained from these studies can be used to develop proper drug treatment regimens and improve diabetes control.

Diabetes prevention trial

K.I.D.S physicians are conducting a research study to better understand type 1 diabetes and its onset in the relatives of patients with the disease. Recent studies have shown that type 1 diabetes may be caused by the destruction of islet cells in the pancreas as a result of an allergic-type reaction in which the immune system “attacks” islet cells through an islet cell antibody. Other studies also show that the tendency to have type 1 diabetes is inherited.

Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium (T1DGC)

We the researchers at K.I.D.S are trying to discover how differences in the genes that we inherit from our parents contribute to the risk for development of type 1 diabetes. Genes are 'blue prints' in our bodies which we get from our parents at birth, that decide our characteristics like the color of our hair, our eyes and the shape of our bodies. Some genes are also involved in whether you have diabetes or not. If we find out more about these genes, we may be able to prevent diabetes in the future.

Molecular Genetics

Study to assess the genetic factors predisposing individuals and families to develop obesity/diabetes.

Our genetic backups, economic status, social architecture and rapid modernisation make us a different human pool in the globe. Research is needed in the form of:

  • To know the cause
  • Know the incidence
  • Diagnostic tools
  • Newer therapy
  • Supportive materials
  • Diet & nutrition (Actual need of food & its role in diabetes management)
  • Communication
