Israeli company says artificial pancreas that can ‘cure’ diabetes ready for trials in UK

An Israeli firm behind an artificial micro-pancreas that it claims can cure diabetes says the medical product is ready for clinical trials on humans.

Betalin Therapeutics tells the Guardian it will submit a request to British regulators next month to begin the trials, with the aim of starting testing next year. It hopes the device will be market ready by 2024.

The company says its invention will allow diabetics to forgo insulin shots and the need to monitor their blood sugar levels.
