The enormous increase in our knowledge and understanding of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, or type I diabetes, in recent years has evolved and advanced to the point where non-diabetic people who have a high risk of subsequent IDDM can be identified and knowledge of the pathogenesis of IDDM, even though incomplete, is now being used in clinical trials to try to prevent the development of clinical IDDM. Prediction, Prevention and Genetic Counseling in IDDM is an up-to-date summary of the latest developments examining and analyzing how diabetes can be predicted through genetic, immune and cell markers, metabolic assessment, environmental factors and animal models. It also discusses thoroughly various prevention strategies and agents, such as cyclosporine, azathioprine, insulin and nicotinamide, in human and animal models.
This authoritative, yet practical, book is essential reading for endocrinologists and diabetologists, as well as all clinicians, whether doctors, nurse specialists or allied health workers.
