Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International Inc. Key Developments

JDRF and Cam Med Partner to Develop Flexible Patch Pump for Automated Insulin Delivery Systems

JDRF and Cam Med LLC announced a new Industry Development and Discovery Partnership to develop a user-centric insulin pump for next-generation artificial pancreas systems. This funding commitment from JDRF will enable Cam Med to further the development of its innovative Evopump, an ultra-thin and flexible, bandage-like patch pump. Since JDRF launched the Artificial Pancreas Project more than a decade ago, significant progress has been made in automating insulin delivery. However, the bulkiness of automated insulin delivery devices remains a challenge and may be a factor inhibiting wide-scale adoption, especially in children where skin "real estate" is at a premium. The goal of this collaboration is to accelerate the development of Cam Med's conformable and small-footprint Evopump, which would represent a substantial improvement over existing delivery systems for both pediatric and adult users. T1D is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. T1D develops when the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are mistakenly destroyed by the body's immune system. T1D must be managed with the lifelong use of insulin—either via injection or insulin pump.

JDRF Partners with EOFlow to Develop Wearable Automated Insulin Delivery System for People with Type 1 Diabetes

JDRF announced a new Industry Development and Discovery Partnership supporting South Korea's EOFlow Co. Ltd. in the development of a wearable, disposable automated insulin delivery patch device for people with T1D. EOFlow recently received Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) approval on its wearable insulin pump system, EOPatch. The product incorporates a proprietary electroosmotic pumping technology which allows it to be smaller and lighter and the company plans to build on this strength to create a small, light and wearable automated insulin delivery device suitable for children's use. EOFlow will use the funding to develop and run clinical studies on the wearable device, which consists of an insulin pump and an integrated continuous glucose sensor, which is run by a closed-loop program that autonomously regulates the blood glucose level with minimal user input. This is the first time JDRF is granting funds to EOFlow for research and is also the first time that JDRF is funding a company in Korea.
