According to the publication WAtoday, Australian scientists have invented an artificial pancreas that can measure the level of sugar in the blood.
The inventors tested a prototype program and devices that simulates body.
As told by Jenny Gunton from Garvanskogo Institute for Medical Research and Nigel Greenwood of the University of Queensland: "The device with this program will be engaged in the measurement of glucose in human blood. In response to the information received will be released dose of insulin, as does the normal pancreas."
It is noted that if the final phase of testing will take place normally, in the arsenal of physicians get a closed system that solves the problem of diabetes, because monitoring and insulin administration is engaged in a single device.
It is also known that the financing of the project engaged Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The program itself is called "Neuromathix". She calculated the proposed dosage for patients, for whose performance sugar monitored for 55 days.
As a result, the desired level of sugar in the blood was maintained 90% of the time. In the usual case it is possible to achieve only 60%.
Scientists predict that their development will be launched in 2016.
As reported by the "Observer", the researchers have achieved significant results in the prosthesis of human organs, which in the near future to replace the damaged parts of the body.
