If you have T1D and do not always know when you have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), you may be able to take part in a clinical research study.

See if you may qualify

The FORWARD Study is looking for adults ages 18 to 65 with type 1 diabetes with severe low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and impaired hypoglycemic awareness, meaning that assistance has been required from somebody else to recover from low blood sugar, to participate in this clinical research study. Participants must have a clinical history of type 1 diabetes with onset occurring before 40 years of age, and they must require insulin via injections or pump to manage their diabetes. If you are interested in taking part, please complete the following questionnaire to determine if you may be eligible.

Please Read – Your Consent Is Required

The following pages contain some prescreening questions to determine whether you may be eligible to take part in the clinical research study. If you would like to participate in the prescreening, you will need to provide certain personal information such as your name, contact information, and postal code, as well as your answers to some health-related questions.

The sponsor of this study is accountable for your personal information. The sponsor has engaged Praxis (“we” or “us”) to assist with clinical trial recruitment for the study by collecting prescreening information for the study through this website. Your information will be used only to evaluate your eligibility for this study and, if you consent, to inform of potential Vertex research studies in the future.

The prescreener information you submit online will not be shared with the sponsor in any way that could identify you. The sponsor’s service provider, Praxis, which is located in the United States, will store this information as the operator of the website and will only share information in aggregate with the sponsor.

In the event that you are found potentially eligible for this study, you will have the option to provide contact information so we can connect you with myTomorrows, who is also a service provider to Vertex on this study, and a representative will contact you to do further screening. Based on the results of that screening, and with your permission, your information would be shared with a research site. In the event that you are not eligible for this study, you will have the option to provide contact information so that we (or another company hired to assist with this on behalf of the sponsor or a research site) can contact you with the eligibility criteria changes for this study or for future studies of the sponsor.

In either case, you do not have to provide contact information and can elect to have your personal information deleted instead. If you do not elect to delete the information, we will store it for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes listed above, in accordance with applicable laws, or as indicated by your choice if you are electing for us to keep it to contact you in the future about this study or future studies of the sponsor.

You may withdraw your consent at any time, and, upon withdrawal of your consent, we will promptly delete your personal information except to the extent required to comply with our legal obligations. For a fuller description of your privacy rights and the sponsor’s privacy practices, please see the sponsor’s Privacy Notice. You can read about your privacy rights under the heading “Privacy Preferences and Rights,” and you may find contact information for the sponsor’s Data Protection Officer under the heading “How to Contact Us.” If you have a question or complaint, wish to withdraw consent, or exercise your other privacy rights (including access and correction), please contact Praxis at, as the sponsor will not receive any information about you from this website. The sponsor is Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated.
