London: British scientists claim to have made a significant breakthrough towards developing a so-called "artificial pancreas" system for managing Type 1 Diabetes in children.
In their study, 17 children and teenagers aged between5 and 18 with type 1 diabetes were studied during 54 nights inhospital. The team measured how well the artificial pancreassystem controlled glucose levels compared with the children`sregular continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) pump,which delivers insulin at pre-selected rates. The study included nights when the children went tobed after eating a large evening meal or having done earlyevening exercise. PTI
