Summer is underway, and with summer comes another annual meeting of the
American Diabetes Association. This year's Annual Meeting and Scientific
Sessions, our 62nd, took place June 13 through 18, in San Francisco, CA. We
thought you might be interested in some of the news and information that was
released at the meeting.

Study: Artificial Pancreas Safe and Effective
A preliminary study by an international team of scientists led by Dr. Eric
Renard in Montpelier, France, found an "artificial pancreas" safe and
effective.  The artificial organ is designed to deliver insulin to people with
diabetes without the need of injections.  The device delivers necessary
amounts of insulin into the bloodstream when a sensor detects rising blood
glucose levels.  Dr. Renard reported these findings at the American Diabetes
Association's 62nd Annual Scientific Sessions, held June 14-18 in San

Diabetes at School:
What a Child's Health Care Team Needs to Know About Federal Disability Law
Children with diabetes spend an enormous amount of time in school and must be
able to achieve the same level of diabetes management in school that they do
during the rest of the day. To do so, they need access to the tools for
diabetes management and to school personnel who are knowledgeable about
diabetes and able to assist. In a commentary in the Spring 2002 issue of
Clinical Diabetes, ADA president-elect Francine Ratner Kaufman, MD, reviews
the major federal laws protecting the rights of school children with diabetes.
She emphasizes the importance of written plans outlining the responsibilities
of the student, family, school staff, and health care team.

ADA Calls for Legislation to Protect Access to Stem-Cell Research and
Therapeutic Cloning
On June 16, 2002, during the American Diabetes Association's Annual Meeting in
San Francisco, the Association called upon the United States Senate to pass
Senate Bill 2349, "The Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2002," sponsored by
Senators Specter, Feinstein, Hatch and Kennedy.  This bill would allow
scientists to search for a potential cure to diabetes through a scientific
technique known as therapeutic cloning or somatic cell nuclear transfer
(SCNT).  The legislation also establishes a review process for all proposed
SCNT research in the U.S. and criminalizes research aimed at cloning another
human being.
