Wireless CGM Sensor – A Milestone on the Way to an Artificial Pancreas

Shares

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.
