New Hope for Children Suffering from Diabetes in the Form of Artificial Pancreas
In a breakthrough new development, a team of scientists in Cambridge have managed to show that an "artificial pancreas" can effectively be used to control and regulate blood sugar in children who are suffering from Type 1 diabetes.
A research led the scientists to discover that by bringing together a "real time" sensor which measures glucose levels with a pump which is capable of delivering insulin; overnight blood sugar control can be boosted.
Experts have stressed that the findings are an important "step forward" in the effective treatment of one of the most widespread conditions.
For the sake of study, a total of 17 children and teenagers with Type 1 diabetes were observed for 54 nights in a hospital.
Details of the study have been published in The Lancet.
