CLOSED-LOOP INSULIN DELIVERY COMPARED WITH ISLET CELL TRANSPLANTATION FOR ADULTS WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES AND IMPAIRED AWARENESS OF HYPOGLYCAEMIA
Grant number: 1150537 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Hypoglycaemia in adults with type 1 diabetes is common. Evaluation of therapies – the ‘artificial pancreas’ and islet cell transplantation - is warranted in a cohort with repeated episodes of hypoglycaemia. This proposal will assess whether the ‘artificial pancreas’ and islet cell transplantation, compared with usual insulin therapy, will reduce hypoglycaemia and improve other clinical outcomes over 6 months. This has potential to expand therapies used in current clinical practice.
