Clinical Trials of a First-Generation Artificial Pancreas System, Animas Corporation Reveals
Published: Jun 12, 2012
Results from the first feasibility study of an advanced first-generation artificial pancreas system were presented at the 72nd Annual American Diabetes Association Meeting in Philadelphia. Findings from the study indicated that the Hypoglycemia-Hyperglycemia Minimizer (HHM) System was able to automatically predict a rise and fall in blood glucose and correspondingly increase and/or decrease insulin delivery safely. The HHM System included a continuous, subcutaneous insulin pump, a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and special software used to predict changes in blood glucose.
