Cellnovo and Diabeloop Update on Artificial Pancreas
New milestones reached in Artificial Pancreas programme, further to Cellnovo fundraise in September 2016
Paris, France, January 5, 2017 - Cellnovo Group (“Cellnovo” CLNV:EN Paris, or “the Company”), a medical technology company marketing the first mobile, connected, all-in-one diabetes management system and Diabeloop, a privately held medical devices company, developing an Artificial Pancreas system, announce today that they have reached several milestones in their Artificial Pancreas programme.
Cellnovo is currently participating in several major projects in both the US and Europe to develop an Artificial Pancreas system to enable the complete automation of insulin delivery. An Artificial Pancreas has the potential to provide more accurate regulation of blood-sugar levels in insulin-dependent people with Type 1 diabetes and to prevent hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic events and long-term complications that may arise from diabetes. The Artificial Pancreas system uses the information from the patient’s continuous blood glucose monitor (CGM) to calculate and deliver the optimal insulin dose to patients in real-time.
- The results of a first study of the Diabeloop algorithm, paired with the Cellnovo pump in 36 patients at 9 centres showed positive outcomes, which will be detailed by Diabeloop at the Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes conference (ATTD) taking place February 15-18 in Paris, France.
- Given the positive outcome, Cellnovo has delivered its first Bluetooth pumps to Diabeloop in preparation for the next clinical study, which will start in February 2017. This study will include 60 patients from 12 centres. The results are expected this year.
- This new study will be aimed at generating data for the purpose of obtaining a CE mark for the Diabeloop Artificial Pancreas combined with the Cellnovo System.
“Alongside our French partner, Diabeloop, we have made significant progress in the development of this Artificial Pancreas solution and we remain confident in our ability to have our connected product available for patients in Europe in 2018. We are proud to be developing Artificial Pancreas solutions, that will considerably improve the quality of life of Type 1 diabetes patients.”
Sophie BaratteChief Executive Officer of Cellnovo
“We are very pleased with the strong progress our Artificial Pancreas system is making in collaboration with our partner Cellnovo. The first clinical results are very encouraging and we’ve had excellent feedback from the patients and medical teams. We look forward to the complete data from the first study being presented at the ATTD meeting in Paris.”
