Figure 1: Variables related to acceptance among type 1 diabetes patients of new therapies
Comparison of the percentage of patients who expressed willingness to receive new therapies based on several motivational factors. Patients were divided into two groups based on whether they (A) were satisfied with the current treatment or not, (B) wished to be insulin free or not, (C) had experienced an unconscious hypoglycemic attack (COMA+) or not (COMA-), (D) had experienced severe hypoglycemia requiring a third party’s help (HELP+) or not (HELP-), and (E) had experienced unaware hypoglycemia (UHG+) or not (UHG-). AIT = Allogeneic Islet Transplantation; XIT = Islet Xenotransplantation; DNA = DNA Vaccination; IPS = Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapy. *P-value < 0.05 between the two groups.
