Links to research from JDRF

JDRF has announced a 2 year partnership with SFC Fluidics to develop a single pod automated insulin delivery device.  it seeks to combine a CGM, pump and algorithm in one device which can be disposed of every three days. It would have a single skin entry pint rather than current pump/CGM tech which pierces the skin in two locations.  https://jdrf.org.uk/news/jdrf-announces-partnership-develop-new-pod-device-automated-insulin-delivery/

 

A new insulin which is rapid acting and ultra concentrated is due to be tested in clinical trials this year. This has been developed through a partnership between JDRF and Arecor and it’s hoped it will lead to smaller, easier to wear pumps.  https://jdrf.org.uk/news/new-insulin-jdrf-project-progresses-clinical-trials/

 

 

JDRF is partnering with biotech start-up Enable Biosciences in the US to develop a spit test that can be used to screen for type 1 diabetes. The spit-to-screen scheme aims to make diagnoses for children easier. https://jdrf.org.uk/news/jdrf-funds-spit-test-to-screen-for-type-1/

 

Scientists were able to reverse type 1 diabetes and restore normal blood glucose levels in mice, using a virus carrying two special genes. The research, which was partly funded by JDRF, is part of efforts focused on finding a way to cure type 1 diabetes. https://jdrf.org.uk/news/virus-used-cure-type-1-diabetes/
