The prognostic significance of islet cell specific autoantibodies at the diagnosis of Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus for the persistence of residual beta-cell function over the first 2 years of clinical disease was evaluated in a prospective population-based study. Seven hundred and eighty probands, aged 0.8-14.9 years, were examined for islet cell antibodies (ICA) and insulin autoantibodies (IAA), while 769 probands were studied for antibodies to glutamic acid decarboxylase… CONTINUE READING
