To elucidate the genetic factors contributing to heterogeneity of the rate of beta-cell destruction in type 1 diabetes, we investigated the relationship between the time course of complete beta-cell loss and HLA class I and II alleles. HLA allele frequencies were also examined among subgroups classified by the mode of onset. The subjects were 266 type 1 diabetic patients (among whom 196 patients were studied longitudinally) and 136 normal control subjects. Earlier complete loss of beta-cell… CONTINUE READING
