Patients with type 1 diabetes could get a powerful new treatment tool as work continues on the development of a bionic pancreas. The device is still undergoing testing and tweaking but initial results have shown promise from an early model.

Edward Damiano, PhD, from Boston University discussed the work on the device during the American Assocation of Clinical Endocrinologists 24th Annual Scientific Sessions and Clinical Congress in Nashville. Damiano said with the device providing not only insulin but also glucagon it can provide a level of automated treatment not yet seen by patients.
