[IPn] Large scale study of IDDM seeks participants

Trial to Reduce Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus in the 
Genetically at Risk (TRIGR) is an international study with centers in 
the US, Canada, Europe and Australia.  Its purpose is to conduct a 
primary prevention trial for type 1 diabetes. The study is seeking 
newborn infants with a family member (mother, father, sister, 
brother) who has type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes. TRIGR's purpose 
is to find out whether a diet free of cow's milk protein within the 
first six months of life reduces the risk of type 1 diabetes in 
at-risk patients.  The study also hopes to determine if the cow's 
milk-free diet reduces the frequency of diabetes-specific antibodies, 
which can occur in high-risk individuals prior to the development of 
diabetes. Recruitment for the study is  anytime during pregnancy or 
up to 7 days of life.
