JDRF Reaches Milestone in Artificial Pancreas Project in Partnership with UC Santa Barbara and Sansum Diabetes Research Institute
Date:6/25/2010

nt, and essential to JDRF's work with industry participants to develop first-generation systems.

JDRF announced the first major non-exclusive industry initiatives of the Artificial Pancreas Project in January 2010, when it entered into a non-exclusive partnership with Animas, a Johnson & Johnson company, to develop a first-generation artificial pancreas system.  

The eventual, ultimate goal of the JDRF Artificial Pancreas Project is speeding the development of automated diabetes management systems.   The goal of an artificial pancreas has also been embraced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which, along with JDRF and the National Institutes of Health, brought together scientists, regulators, industry and patients for scientific workshops on the subject in 2005 and 2008; the FDA has designated an artificial pancreas as one of its "critical path" initiatives.

An artificial pancreas would measure blood sugar through a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), which continuously reads the glucose levels through a hair-thin tube inserted just below the skin, typically on the stomach.  The CGM would beam those readings to an insulin pump.  In an advanced system, the pump would house a sophisticated computer program that would automatically calculate the necessary amount of insulin, based on the CGM's glucose readings, and deliver the right amount of insulin.

The development of an artificial pancreas system is an essential step toward an ultimate cure for type 1 diabetes–a "bridge to a cure."
