Animas' Development of a First-Generation Closed Loop Insulin Delivery System Progresses With Data Presented at the Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) Conference
Date:2/28/2013

WEST CHESTER, Pa., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Animas Corporation announced today positive results from the second phase of human clinical trials of a first-generation, closed-loop insulin delivery system in development, designed to predict a rise or fall in blood glucose and correspondingly increase, decrease, suspend and resume insulin delivery. The data were presented at the Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) Conference in Paris, France.

The feasibility study of the predictive Hypoglycemia-Hyperglycemia Minimizer (HHM) System* in development was conducted in 20 adults with Type 1 diabetes and designed to investigate the System's ability to adjust insulin dosing to proactively mitigate hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. The study, which was the first conducted in humans to investigate the configuration of the predictive algorithm, revealed differences in the algorithm's insulin-dosing characteristics and provided insights into the sensitivity of the System. The results also indicated that the System reduced insulin delivery in advance of hypoglycemia and triggered timely warnings. The study was conducted by Animas Corporation in partnership with leading academic research institutions, including the University of California, Santa Barbara; Sansum Diabetes Research Institute; and the Center for Diabetes Technology at the University of Virginia.

"We are encouraged by these results, which strengthen our understanding of the complex algorithms required of a closed-loop insulin delivery system and further our confidence in this technology platform," said Ramakrishna Venugopalan , Director, Research & Development at Animas Corporation.  "The scope of this study also reflects our commitment to create innovative and robust solutions for people living with diabetes."

Animas began collaborating with industry, academia and advocacy organi
