Blood Glucose Control in Type 1 Diabetes With a Bihormonal Bionic Endocrine Pancreas

I super appreciate the work of Firas H. El-Khatib and Ed Damiano et al!  

 

...CONCLUSIONS A bihormonal bionic endocrine pancreas achieved excellent glycemic control with minimal hypoglycemia over the course of two days of continuous use despite high-carbohydrate meals and exercise. A trial testing a wearable version of the system under free-living conditions is justified.

5 Big FDA Decisions Expected in September - 24/7 Wall St.

5 Big FDA Decisions Expected in September - 24/7 Wall St. | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
24/7 Wall St. has collected several big FDA decisions coming up on the calendar for the month of September and added some color.
Ellen H Ullman, MSW's insight:

Zosano Pharma Corp. (NASDAQ: ZSAN) recently completed its enrollment for the Phase 2 trial for ZP-Glucagon. If it is approved by the FDA, it has the potential to be a significant improvement over the currently marketed products for treatment of severe hypoglycemia, which often require a lay person to deliver an injection after a cumbersome preparation process. The company anticipates announcing top-line data from the trial around September. Shares of Zosano ended the week at $8.10, in its 52-week range of $7.01 to $12.40. The consensus analyst price target is $21.00.

In 1967, my parents decided to send me to private school and in September I had the required physical exam. Just after the exam, my mom took me down to a lab, and I had my blood taken. When I asked her why, she said something about diabetes, but added, “don’t worry, you don’t have diabetes”. A few days later she said I had to go to Children’s Hospital in Washington DC, and did not tell me why. When I got there, the receptionist looked at me and said, “oh this is the little girl with diabetes...
