Scientists Create A Painless Patch That Can Control Diabetes Without Injections

Prof Zhen Gu of University of North Carolina led tests on mice. The smart patch can detect blood sugar level spikes and secrete doses of insulin into the bloodstream whenever imbalances occur. These “microneedles” are packed with microscopic storage units for insulin and glucose-sensing enzymes that rapidly release their cargo when blood sugar levels get too high. A successful fully automated artificial pancreas would likely reduce the frequency of and anxiety about hypoglycemia and marked hyperglycemia. “These smart insulin approaches are exciting because they hold the promise of giving patients some time off with regards to their diabetes self-care. Once the blood sugar levels go back to normal, the insulin stops being released. The bubble bursts, delivering immediately the insulin payload to the body.

This represents the possibility for people with diabetes not to need go through the challenging task of accurately estimating how much carbohydrate is in every meal and calculating the correct dose based on that figure plus additional factors. These results confirm that the proposed starch/gelatin microneedles enable stable encapsulation of bioactive molecules and have great potential for transdermal delivery of protein drugs in a relatively painless, rapid, and convenient manner. Luke’s Hospital, San Francisco. Kept safely outside of the patient’s body, the beta cells have no chance of being rejected by the immune system. Gu created “microneedles”
