abatacept (CTLA 4 immunoglobulin fusion protein), believed to interfere with priming and activation of T cells, Figure: Role of co-stimulation in immunopathogenesis and immune intervention in type 1 diabetes β-cell proteins are taken up by antigenpresenting cells (APC) and presented by HLA molecules to the immune system. Naive autoreactive T cells (Tn) recognise that these proteins could be primed to become proinfl ammatory eff ector T cells (Th 1) through costimulation by CD 28 on T cells with CD 80 or CD 86 on APC. Eff ector Th 1 cells orchestrate cascade of autoimmune responses that include activation of B cells to produce islet autoantibodies and cytotoxic T cells to lyse β cells expressing islet autoantigen. Once T cells have become activated, they become less dependent on co-stimulation. Regulatory T cells (Tregs) engage co-stimulatory molecule CTLA 4 endorsing negative immune regulation to inhibit immune eff ector T cells. Modulation of co-stimulation via CTLA 4 by abatacept interferes with priming of naive T cells through competition with CD 28. This could prevent priming of naive T cells and avoid spreading of autoimmune response and progression of disease. Conversely, blockade of CTLA 4 with antibody represses regulatory T cells and promotes proinfl ammatory T-cell responses.

Background The immunopathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus is associated with Tcell autoimmunity. To be fully active, immune T cells need a co-stimulatory signal in addition to the main antigendriven signal. Abatacept modulates costimulation and prevents full T-cell activation. We evaluated the effect of abatacept in recent-onset type 1 diabetes.
Methods In this multicentre, double-blind, randomised controlled trial, patients aged 6– 45 years recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes were randomly assigned (2: 1) to receive abatacept (10 mg/kg, maximum 1000 mg per dose) or placebo infusions intravenously on days 1, 14, 28, and monthly for a total of 27 infusions over 2 years. Computergenerated permuted block randomisation was used, with a block size of 3 and stratified by participating site. Neither patients nor research personnel were aware of treatment assignments. The primary outcome was baseline-adjusted geometric mean 2 -h area-under-the-curve (AUC) serum C-peptide concentration after a mixed-meal tolerance test at 2 years’ follow-up. Analysis was by intention to treat for all patients for whom data were available. This trial is registered at Clinical. Trials. gov, NCT 00505375.
We screened patients (aged 6– 45 years) diagnosed with type 1 diabetes within the past 100 days. Patients were eligible to participate in the study if they had at least one diabetes-related autoantibody (microassayed insulin antibodies [if duration of insulin therapy was less than 7 days]; glutamic acid decarboxylase-65 [GAD-65] antibodies; islet-cell antigen-512 [ICA-512] antibodies; or islet-cell autoantibodies) and had stimulated C-peptide concentrations of 0・ 2 nmol/L or higher measured during a mixedmeal tolerance test (MMTT) done at least 21 days after diagnosis of diabetes and within 37 days of randomisation.
β-cell function was assessed by stimulated Cpeptide secretion. The prespecified primary outcome of this trial was a comparison of the area under the curve (AUC) of stimulated C-peptide response over the first 2 h of a 4 -h MMTT, done at the 24 -month visit. 4 -h MMTTs were done at baseline and at 24 months; 2 -h MMTTs were obtained at 3, 6, 12, and 18 months.

Findings 112 patients were assigned to treatment groups (77 abatacept, 35 placebo). Adjusted C-peptide AUC was 59% (95% CI 6・ 1– 112) higher at 2 years with abatacept (n=73, 0・ 378 nmol/L) than with placebo (n=30, 0・ 238 nmol/L; p=0・ 0029). The difference between groups was present throughout the trial, with an estimated 9・ 6 months’ delay (95% CI 3・ 47– 15・ 6) in C-peptide reduction with abatacept. There were few infusion-related adverse events (36 reactions occurred in 17 [22%] patients on abatacept and 11 reactions in six [17%] on placebo). There was no increase in infections (32 [42%] patients on abatacept vs 15 [43%] on placebo) or neutropenia (seven [9%] vs fi ve [14%]).
Interpretation Co-stimulation modulation with abatacept slowed reduction in β-cell function over 2 years. The beneficial effect suggests that T-cell activation still occurs around the time of clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Yet, despite continued administration of abatacept over 24 months, the decrease in β-cell function with abatacept was parallel to that with placebo after 6 months of treatment, causing us to speculate that T-cell activation lessens with time. Further observation will establish whether the beneficial effect continues after cessation of abatacept infusions. Funding US National Institutes of Health.

OBJECTIVE—The study objectives were 1) to assess the effectiveness and safety of a standardized protocol for the transition to subcutaneous insulin and oral feeding in diabetic or hyperglycemic patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who were receiving intravenous insulin and glucose at the time of the transfer from the intensive cardiac care unit to a general ward and 2) to identify predictors of transition outcome.
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS— This was a prospective observational study. The protocol specifies that patients receive a 100% of their daily subcutaneous insulin requirement from the first day of oral feeding, calculated from the intravenous insulin rate during the final 12 h divided into two: 50% basal and 50% prandial.
Safety of the protocol Pre- or postprandial hypoglycemia (BG , 70 mg/d. L) was observed in 11 patients (7. 7%) on the first day after transition from intravenous to subcutaneous insulin, in 21 patients (14. 8%) on the second day, and in 20 patients (14. 1%) on the third day. Overall, 38 patients (26. 8%) presented at least one episode of hypoglycemia in the first 3 days after transition. BG was , 70 mg/d. L 13 times on the first day (2. 8% of BG measured before meals and 0. 2% of BG measured after meals), 25 times on the second day (3. 7% of pre- and 2. 6% of postprandial BG measurements), and 23 times on the third day (3. 7% of pre- and 2. 4% of postprandial BG measurements). Of all the 61 hypoglycemic episodes in the first 3 days after transition, 2 (3. 3%) were , 40 mg/d. L, 3 (4. 9%) were 40– 49 mg/d. L, 11 (18. 0%) were 50– 59 mg/d. L, and the majority (45, 73. 8%) were 60– 69 mg/d. L. All hypoglycemic episodes were asymptomatic, with no manifest clinical consequences. Among the 38 patients with hypoglycemic episodes during the first 3 days after transition to subcutaneous insulin, there was one death (2. 6%) and six major nonlethal cardiovascular complications (15. 8%). The corresponding figures for 104 patients without hypoglycemic events were 2 (1. 9%) and 9 (7. 7%).
Predictors of outcomes of the transition from intravenous to subcutaneous insulin The transition to subcutaneous insulin was successful (half or more of all first day BG values in the strict ranges of 100– 140 mg/d. L before meals and 100– 180 after meals) in 75 patients (52. 8%) and unsuccessful in 67 patients (47. 2%). Variables associated with unsuccessful transition by multivariate analysis were old age (≧ 72 years, OR 2. 292, 95% CI 1. 082– 4. 856), high mean dose of intravenous insulin infused in the 24 h preceding the transition (≧ 1. 6 units/h, OR 2. 202, 95% CI 1. 045– 4. 640), and wide BG coefficient of variation in the 24 h preceding the transition (≧ 11. 9%, OR 1. 751, 95% CI 0. 841– 3. 646).
RESULTS—In 142 patients (93 male, 49 female, age range 47– 88 years, 135 with known diabetes) the first day after transition, 44. 8% of blood glucose (BG) measurements were within the strict range of 100– 140 mg/d. L before meals and 100– 180 mg/d. L after meals, and 70. 8%were within the broader ranges of 80– 160 mg/d. L and 80– 200 mg/d. L, respectively. Pre- or postprandial hypoglycemia (BG , 70 mg/d. L) occurred in 11 patients (7. 7%) on the first day and in 38 patients (26. 8%) on the first 3 days after transition. Old age, high doses of intravenous insulin, and wide BG variations in the 24 h before insulin infusion was stopped were predictive of poor BG control after transition.
CONCLUSIONS—This study shows the effectiveness and safety of a standardized protocol for the transition from intravenous to subcutaneous insulin in patients with ACS when regular oral feeding was resumed.
