Re: [IP] Medtronic 670G announced: "Artificial Pancreas"



I concur.... this is why the bionic pancreas is the only one that I would
like the FDA to fast track for approval:

and I'm not saying that just because their Senior Research Scientist is
also named Firas Khatib:

:-)

...although I *am* saying it because I participated in the clinical trial
for their Bionic Pancreas (which uses a Dexcom G4, and 2 t-slims: insulin
and glucagon) and it was the best 2 weeks of my diabetic life!
