Support diabetes research at the DDZ with your participation in a clinical trial.

Deepening our knowledge on diabetes to improve preventive and therapeutic options requires intensified research efforts.

In particular, the causes underlying the development of diabetes and diabetes-related complications are largely unexplained. Further research is required to improve the prediction, prevention and treatment of the disease and its comorbidities.

Clinical trials are conducted with the aim to identify factors affecting the development and progression of diabetes and its complications. At the same time, patients benefit from their study participation by obtaining detailed information on their disease state.
