Around one year ago, the Freder1k study on the early detection of the risk of type 1 diabetes in newborns was started in Saxony, which has met with great national and international response. Next week, the POInT prevention study will start across Europe with the aim of preventing the development of type 1 diabetes in children with an increased genetic risk. To carry out this study, the Clinical Study Center for Pediatrics will open on 29 January 2018 in the rooms of the Children's Hospital of the University Hospital Dresden.
