Artificial Pancreas Prototype in Development for Type 1 Diabetics
Date:1/13/2010

imas insulin pump with a DexCom CGM system that will wirelessly transmit information to the pump. The pump will be programmed with sophisticated mathematical algorithms that will instruct it to stop insulin delivery if the CGM senses that the blood sugar levels are dropping, or to increase insulin delivery if the CGM senses that blood sugar levels are rising unexpectedly.

Of the announcement, Dr. Neslihan Gungor, a pediatric endocrinologist at Scott and White Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas, who is not involved in the project, said, "There is much progress going on, and hopefully we will have that closed loop system someday. And, this gives me hope for the future."

"Every day in our clinic, we ask parents to check so many blood sugars a day and they always have to keep so many factors in mind. How much is my child going to eat? Is he or she going to exercise? What is the current blood sugar? If someone could develop an algorithm that could keep all these things in mind, that would be great, and it would make daily life easier," Gungor said.
