iLet Bionic Pancreas - Beta Bionics, a startup created by Boston University biomedical engineer Ed Damiano, hit the benchmark Wednesday night after 775 members of the public put up an average of $1,300 each to back its idea for a new kind of pacemaker for diabetics.

To build a technology that will automatically manage our children's diabetes, day and night, and keep them safe from the far-reaching harms, the immediate dangers, the emotional burden, and the fear that type 1 diabetes carries with it every day of their lives. That technology will provide a bridge that spans the divide between where we are today and the biological cure of tomorrow - a cure that has been ever present in our dreams, and ever elusive from our lives.
iLet bionic pancreas Bioengineer Edward Damiano developed an "artificial pancreas" after his son, David, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
The artificial pancreas technology was developed by Damiano, whose teenage son has type 1 diabetes and has to inject himself with insulin or risk going into a diabetic coma.

In another study, Edward R. Damiano, Ph.D., of Boston University, and colleagues evaluated the efficacy of a dual-hormone (insulin and glucagon) bionic pancreas in adults with type 1 diabetes living at home and performing their normal activities without restrictions on diet or exercise. The investigators compared the blood glucose control of the dual-hormone bionic pancreas versus conventional insulin pump therapy.

"Relative to conventional insulin pump therapy, the bionic pancreas was associated with a reduction in the average blood glucose level of more than 20 mg/dL, and a more than three-fold reduction in hypoglycemia. Both of these reductions were found to be statistically significant," Damiano said.

"It's intimidating when you start considering the list of things that influence blood sugar," Ed Damiano, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University, told NPR.

You can't possibly take into account and balance all those things," Damiano continued. "And sometimes you get it right. And often you get it wrong."
Thankfully, Damiano is giving new hope to his son, and potentially, all those diagnosed with type 1 diabetes now and in the future. This hope comes in the form of an iPhone-based artificial pancreas or "bionic pancreas. Damiano is racing to get the new device, designed to help people better manage their blood sugar, approved by the Food and Drug Administration before his son heads off to college in three years.
"Most artificial pancreas projects consist of a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and a multi-hormone pump controlled by a software program to mimic the logic/intelligence of a pancreas," noted iMedicalApps. "For this [Damiano's] project, they used a Dexcom G4 CGM and two separate Tandem t:slim pumps for secreting glucagon and insulin-based hormones which respectively raise and lower blood sugar levels.
For now, Damiano has received approval to launch a new round of testing. Beginning this past June, dozens of new adult and adolescent volunteers signed up to use his system for 11 days.
