  WOW, IF THATS NOT THE MOST IGNORANT STATEMENT IVE EVER HEARD, IT COMES 
CLOSE...i dont know who you think you are (on a level of education) to say 
such a statement, but this is soooo far from the truth....minimed has already 
closed the loop for 4 consecutive days, when they attempted to do so, on 10 
different individuals....theyre just perfecting the algorithm between the 
pump and the glucose sensor so it can work for all different individuals, of 
all different body types and metabolisms....being a first yr med student, and 
both parents physicians, i hear first hand, about the medical research and 
breakthroughs coming out for diabetes, especially the artificial pancreas, 
which is indeed a CLOSED LOOP system and is VERY close to reality..

   so bite your tongue when it comes out, and NEVER say never

     just my two cents..bassem
