Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are destroyed, resulting in poor blood sugar control. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of islet transplantation, combined with immunosuppressive medications, specifically using Campath as induction, for treating type 1 diabetes in individuals experiencing hypoglycemia unawareness and severe hypoglycemic episodes.

The purpose of this study is to validate a specific itch tool and its relation to skin disease severity in children ages 5-17 who have symptoms of itch (ie, primary dermatologic conditions: atopic dermatitis, epidermolysis bullosa, ichthyosis, psoriasis, etc; or other conditions that result in itch such as cancer and pruritic responses to therapy, chronic liver or renal diseases, patients who receive cancer therapy) The study will look at how well Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) tools uncover meaningful changes in disease status as well as build a list of items relating to pediatric skin diseases and a PRO model for signs and symptoms of skin disease. Surveys can be done remotely.
