"An artificial pancreas, essentially a device that would both measure blood sugar and dispense appropriate amounts of insulin to keep levels in optimal range, would take much of the guesswork out of daily management of the disease,' said Dr. Aaron Kowalski, Assistant Vice President of Treatment Therapies at JDRF. 'In the long-run, controlled blood sugar levels will help to lessen or avert the devastating complications from type 1 diabetes.'

To date, artificial pancreas devices have been successfully tested in controlled inpatient or hospital settings, demonstrating the potential for this technology to improve blood sugar control. Now it must be tested safely in real-world conditions. And clear and reasonable regulatory guidelines must be established to ensure that the upcoming studies advance the technology to reach patients as soon as possible."
