Ed Damiano's session at #CWDFFL2017 will answer every question you have ever had about the new Gen-4 iLet, clinical trials, Beta Bionics as a company and where they are all headed. From the minutia to the BIG picture, it's all here in one place.

This week, Ed Damiano talks about his Bionic Pancreas project. Using a pump called the iLet and a Dexcom CGM, the only information the Bionic Pancreas needs is the user's body weight. It adapts to you, no need to figure out insulin to carb ratios or correction factors. The iLet will eventually come to market using both insulin and glucagon, but the first version will be insulin-only.

Ed Damiano was inspired to create a bionic pancreas because of his son with type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes does not have a cure. Living with the condition is also time consuming, but science is working to make that treatment a little bit easier.

For the 1.25 million American adults and children with type 1 diabetes, managing blood-sugar levels is a 24/7 affair that involves sticking their fingers many times a day and either manually injecting insulin as needed or wearing an insulin pump. Blood glucose management is an inexact science, with levels too high or too low having dangerous consequences. Even a small overdose of insulin can be deadly. Boston University Professor Ed Damiano’s involvement with type 1 diabetes began in May 2000 on a highly personal note when his son David was diagnosed at just 11-months old.

As a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes, Dr. Edward Damiano knows first hand the dangers of this disease. After nearly two decades of research, he has developed the bionic pancreas which promises to change the lives of patients forever.
