Researchers from the University of California San Diego and GlySens Inc. have developed an implantable sensor that measures blood sugar continuously and transmits the information without wires, according to a Reuters report .
The device worked in one pig for more than a year and in another for nearly 10 months with no trouble, and the researchers hope to start a human study within a few months.
The project funded partly by JDRF is part of the Artificial Pancreas Project which aims to develop an automated insulin delivery system based on real-time changes in blood sugar levels.
