Subject: RE: [IP] Artificial Pancreas 

Hi All, 

The CNN article doesn't provide any new detail about an Artificial Pancreas. 
It seems to be just another critic piece about the FDA and their non 
approval of the Medtronic Veo in the US. Since no other FDA equivalent 
internationally is releasing (or close to releasing) anything this doesn't 
seem to be "news" ... 

The most successful artificial Pancreas reported this year seems to be the 
Trial in Europe involving 400 People that Medtronic is closing down. 
Reported in Diabetes Health in Feb 2011. "A Miracle Technology for Type 1s : 
Can it be saved". Whilst it still needs work, from my reading this looks 
better than a Pump. Ok so you still need to test BGs, but still an 
improvement. Lantus was approved and it didn't cure T1. I guess it depends 
how much money can be made from the product ..... 

Warm Regards, 

T1 42 Years 
Pumping 10 Years 
Still looking for something better .....
