A clinical trial on an artificial pancreas done in four pediatric diabetes centers effectively controlled type 1 diabetes for children. 101 children participated in the experiment for four months. The artificial pancreas is also known as closed-loop control where it tracks blood glucose levels using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and automatically delivers the insulin when needed using an insulin pump. This “all-in-one” diabetes management system hopes to replace reliance on testing by fingerstick or CGM with the delivery of insulin by multiple daily injections or a pump controlled by the patient or caregiver.
