    Artificial Pancreas Gets Real


    The U.S.-based National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) announced in early 2017 that it will fund four artificial pancreas systems’ projects. The first artificial pancreas has been approved in 2016 by the FDA but it still requires patients to adjust insulin intakes.

    What the NIDDK is testing here are fully automated systems. Not only will artificial pancreas measure blood glucose levels automatically, but they will also be able to provide autonomously insulin or a combination of insulin and a second hormone.
    The four trials will be conducted in 2017 and 2018 not only in the U.S. but also in France, Holland, Italy, Germany, Israel and Slovenia.
