At the same time, it could also offer significantly improved clinical outcomes in terms of reductions in both average blood sugar levels and hypoglycemia," said one of the lead investigators Edward R. Damiano, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University.

"The cumulative results of our four studies suggest the bionic pancreas could potentially solve the four greatest concerns of type 1 diabetes management," continued Damiano.

Bionic Pancreas System to Use Zealand Pharma's Glucagon Analog | GEN News Highlights | GEN

"We have long awaited and eagerly anticipated the development of a stable pumpable glucagon analog suitable for chronic use in our dual-hormone bionic pancreas," stated Edward Damiano, Ph.D., co-developer of the iLet technology, and the president and CEO of Beta Bionics.

"We are therefore very pleased that Beta Bionics now has access to Zealand's novel investigational glucagon analog, and that Zealand now has our bionic pancreas platform to administer it," added Dr. Damiano, who is also a professor of biomedical engineering at Boston University.

"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."
