Abstract

Diabet. Med. 29, 734-741 (2012) ABSTRACT: Aims The relation of disease progression and age, serum interleukin 10 (IL-10) and interferon gamma (IFN?) and their genetic correlates were studied in paediatric patients with newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes. Methods Two hundred and twenty-seven patients from the Hvidoere Study Group were classified in four different progression groups as assessed by change in stimulated C-peptide from 1 to 6 months. CA repeat variants of the IL-10 and IFN? gene were genotyped and serum levels of IL-10 and IFN? were measured at 1, 6 and 12 months. Results IL-10 decreased (P
