Insulin pumps UK 2018

LIVINGLIVING

that patients using our all-in-one insulin

delivery device can enjoy better control

over blood sugar levels while using less

insulin. This represents the first country

outside of the United States in which our

flagship product V-Go has been launched,

and we look forward to the introduction of

V-Go in additional countries as we expand

our distribution network."

V-Go, which has been available in the

US for a few years, delivers insulin at a

continuous preset basal rate and ondemand bolus dosing for adults with Type

2 diabetes requiring insulin. V-Go devices

are available in a preset basal rate to

deliver 20, 30, or 40 Units of insulin in one

24-hour period.

In June, Valeritas touted positive

results from its Enable study, showing

that patients who switched from insulin

pens and syringes to the V-Go device

experienced improved blood glucose

levels and lowered their daily insulin dose.

The company also noted that the percent

of patients at high risk (with an HbA1c

higher than 9%) was reduced by 50% after

switching to the V-Go device. Lead author

Dr. Jane Cases said, "Findings from the

Enable study demonstrated that no matter

how long a patient had been diagnosed

with diabetes, switching to V-Go from

insulin delivery via insulin pens and syringes

resulted in significantly lower HbA1c levels.

We believe this positive data demonstrates

that diabetes duration should not be a

factor when determining which patient

can benefit from using V-Go." This month

(October 2018), the pump was launched in

Italy, the first European country to have the

product, and will launch in Germany soon,

with no plans yet clear for the UK.

In other news from the US, CeQur

has acquired a wearable, on-demand

insulin delivery system from Johnson

& Johnson's Calibra Medical. The

Calibra device (previously known as the

OneTouch Via) is designed to dose rapidacting,

mealtime insulin for people with

Type 2 diabetes.

CeQur is headquartered in Horw,

Switzerland, with operations in Cardiff (UK),

and Marlborough, Massachusetts USA.

The company has a platform of simple,

wearable, 3-day devices, one of which is

the PAQ, a wearable insulin delivery device

aimed at people with Type 2 diabetes that

delivers up to three days of continuous

pre-set basal insulin plus on- demand

mealtime bolus in 2-unit increments. Its

simple design enables people to easily

experience the benefits of intensive insulin

therapy, while remaining free from the

burdens of daily insulin injections.

On it's website, CeQur refers to buying

the Calibra device, saying, "In July 2018,

CeQur acquired technology for a simple

three-day bolus insulin delivery device.

This device allows a person to administer

insulin in a simple, discreet way by clicking

the two buttons. This can be done over

clothing, so there is no reason to step

away from friends to discreetly deliver a

dose. The three-day bolus device is FDA

cleared for adults requiring insulin and will

be available in 2019."

CeQur says it plans to launch Calibra's

insulin delivery device under a new

name in mid-2019, following transfer of

manufacturing equipment. It remains to

be seen if it will run with both of these

patch pump options.
