iLet Bionic Pancreas - Beta ...

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.

"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.

"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. Damiano's son, David, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 11-months-old.

"Emotions and physical activity, if you're healthy. 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."

The Bionic Pancreas is the creation of Ed Damiano, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University. Dr. Damiano is the father of a teenage son with Juvenile Diabetes. Dr. Damiano has a distinctive, if not bolder, vision than other researchers. In fact, to distinguish his device he has branded it the Bionic Pancreas.

...
Damiano's software currently runs on an iPhone for clinical trials but Ed has plans to develop a separate piece of hardware that will contain the Bionic Pancreas software.
...
In many respects this is a direct result of Dr. Damiano's dual hormone design. Because the system has an imbedded "rescue" through glucagon, the administration of insulin therapy can be more aggressive.
Development Progress
Dr. Damiano received FDA approval for a series of more extensive clinical trials using a fully mobile and wireless Bionic Pancreas system during 2013. The first of these trials began in February and continued for approximately six months. The patients stayed overnight in a Beacon Hill hotel but were be free to pursue normal day-to-day activities during the daytime. Each patient's trial will last for approximately two weeks. During the summer Dr. Damiano ran further clinical trials at a diabetes summer camp, sponsored by the Helmsley Trust. During 2014, Dr. Damiano will conduct another summer camp study in the pediatric population and a larger multi-center hospital staff study in the adult population.
...
Ed is working on all of these challenges but each represents a formidable barrier.
Glucagon limitations. No stable, extended-life liquid glucagon exists today. The current liquid glucagon is usable for less than a day unless refrigerated. In order for the Bionic Pancreas to work, Dr. Damiano will need a liquid glucagon formulation lasting for at least one week at room temperature. At least three small companies are working to develop such an extended-life liquid glucagon formulation. These new glucagon formulations will require clinical trials and FDA approval prior to their incorporation into Dr. Damiano's human clinical trials.
