Slide2 l.jpg

Type 1 diabetes develops from the interaction between susceptibility genes and enviromental determinants. The major genetic susceptibility to type 1 diabetes is conferred by markers from HLA locus, but other genes are involved. The non genetic contribution to the disease (i.e. nutritional factors and infective agents) is even less wll-defined. This may imply aetiological heterogeneity in patients so that particular combinations of genetic susceptibility factors require exposure to specific non-genetic factors in order to initiate the disease developing process in type 1 diabetes. It is well known that immune markers (ICA, GADA, IA2, IAA) appear many years before clinical onset of type 1 diabetes. These “windows” offers the chance to pinpoint subjects at risk eventually suitable to preventive therapies. At present, intervention trials are recommended in the small subset of the population at high risk identified by genetic and immune markers.

Selective immunosuppression, using depleting or nondepleting monoclonal antibodies to lymphocyte cell surface molecules such as CD3, CD4, CD8, T cell receptor and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigens, or blocking peptides to T cell receptors

Immunostimulation by viruses, cytokines, calcitriol, concanavalin A, bacille Calmette-Guèrin (BCG), Freund’s adjuvant or tranfusion of deficient lymphocyte subsets B-Cell rest by suppressive therapy with insulin

Environmental intervention by manipulation of temperature, diet (gluten free) and hormonal milieu

Induction of tolerance to B-cells by bone marrow transplantation, lymphocyte transfusion, intrathymic islet transplantation, neonatal B-cell stimulation and administration (intravenous, intrathymic, intraperitoneal or oral) of putative B-cell autoantigens such as insulin or glutamic acid decarboxylase

  • Because there are environmental causes

  • Because we are beginning to understand the genetic and immune basis

  • Because they develops very slowly

  • Because we have good predictive tests

  • Because we can stop them in animals

  • Because we can run clinical trials


T1dm ad are suitable diseases for preclinical screening and intervention l.jpg
T1DM & AD are suitable diseases for preclinical screening and intervention

  • Serious consequences (in USA 50 deaths yearly from DKA)

  • Treatment following diagnosis expensive, demanding, limited effect on complications

  • Identifiable preclinical phase also for AD

  • Identifiable subjects “not at risk” also for AD

  • ...but as yet no preventive therapy of proved efficacy (no penicillin for prediabetes!)


Assigning risk l.jpg
Assigning risk and intervention

  • Primary prevention: must be based on family history or high risk HLA - and will miss a lot of cases!

  • Secondary prevention: immune-markers relatively stable after age 5; almost inevitable progression with multiple antibodies; excellent screening efficiency (islet imaging)


Setting up an intervention in whom l.jpg
Setting up an intervention: in whom? and intervention

  • Primary: Neonates with family history or high risk HLA

  • Secondary:

    • Infants: HLA DR3/4 with antibodies

    • Children/young adults with multiple Abs (T1DM&AD)

    • Older adults with LADA


Setting up an intervention with what l.jpg
Setting up an intervention: with what? and intervention

Should work:

  • In animal models

  • In newly diagnosed type 1

  • In pilot trials (assessed how?)

    Must have:

  • An acceptable safety profile

  • Ease of administration


Setting up an intervention conclusions l.jpg
Setting up an intervention: conclusions and intervention

  • At present trials must be large, structured, costly and long term

  • Will depend on international collaboration

  • We need a disciplined consensus process for evaluating and prioritizing new therapies

  • Role of pharmaceutical industry? clinicians should have a say

Future Directions? and intervention

  • Surrogate end-points

  • Safety and acceptability need to be balanced against efficacy

  • Early “one-off” therapy would be ideal

  • Lessons from other human autoimmune disease?
