enrolled 1,441 patients with type 1 diabetes from 1983 to 1989.
All 4 SRMPs have documented good results in the IFCC and NGSP monitoring programs [CV <3.0% in SI units, <2.0% in DCCT
units, no bias or a very small bias ([+ or -] 1 mmol/mol) compared to the IFCC primary reference measurement procedure (PRMP)] and were calibrated using the IFCC secondary reference material with assigned IFCC and derived DCCT
In its entirety, a 122-storey building, DCCT
will comprise of an approximate gross built up area of 110,000 square metres (square feet) below
consists of a 122-storey building with an approximate gross built up area of 219,000m 2 above ground and 110,000m 2 below ground gross built up area for parking facilities.
In the multicenter DCCT
, 1,441 patients with type 1 diabetes were randomized to 6.5 years of conventional therapy (730 patients) consisting of one or two insulin injections daily designed to prevent hyperglycemic symptoms or to intensive diabetes treatment (711 patients) consisting of three or more insulin injections daily or the use of an insulin pump in an attempt to achieve a glycated hemoglobin level of less than 6.05%, "as close to the nondiabetic range as possible," Dr.
Participants entered the DCCT
on average six years after onset of diabetes when complications of diabetes were absent or very mild.
The main purpose of the experiment was to construct CCT and DCCT
diagrams for 42SiCr low-alloyed steel.
The 18 years of combined follow-up make the DCCT
and the EDIC the largest, longest-term prospective study that has implemented a cognitive assessment of patients with any clinical condition, he said.
The data come from the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study, comprising 95% (1,375) of the original 1,441 DCCT
When the DCCT
ended after an average of 6.5 years of therapy, most participants enrolled in the long-term observational Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study for continued follow-up.
The theft means that the bus, one of only two of its type out of a fleet of 26 coaches owned by DCCT
, has been forced out of service as it can no longer take wheelchairs.
Researchers believe that DCCT
findings have important implications for the treatment of NIDDM, as well as IDDM.
