Tandem Diabetes Care®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a medical device company and manufacturer of the only touchscreen insulin pumps available in the United States, Dexcom, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM), a leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for people with diabetes, and TypeZero Technologies, LLC, a digital health and personalized medicine company, today announced that they are working together on the integration of their technologies into the NIH-funded International Diabetes Closed Loop (IDCL) Trial starting later this year. This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20161110005485/en/ A Tandem insulin pump and Dexcom G5 sensor will be included as part of a blood glucose control system that combines these devices with a smartphone running TypeZero's inControl closed loop algorithm. The system predicts high and low blood sugar levels and adjusts insulin delivery accordingly throughout the day, while still allowing the user to manually bolus for meals. In addition to basal insulin adjustments, TypeZero's inControl system also automates correction boluses. Tandem and Dexcom anticipate adding a Dexcom G6 sensor-integrated t:slim X2 Pump that incorporates inControl's algorithms directly into the pump's touchscreen interface to the IDCL Trial in 2017. The companies anticipate that the integrated design, together with data from the IDCL Trial, will be the basis for a future regulatory submission by Tandem. "The IDCL Trial is designed as a pivotal trial of a closed-loop control-to-range system, and includes seven institutions in the U.S. and three in Europe led by the University of Virginia," said Boris Kovatchev, PhD, Director of the Center for Diabetes Technology at the University of Virginia and principal investigator of the IDCL Trial. "The integration of technology provided by Tandem, Dexcom, and TypeZero in this trial represents a new level of sophistication in artificial pancreas research and development." "A world-class automated insulin delivery system needs to be simple to use, rely on the most accurate CGM data available, and use a proven and trusted algorithm," said Kim Blickenstaff, president and CEO of Tandem Diabetes Care. "We believe the combination of Tandem, Dexcom, and TypeZero technologies will deliver all three, and we are honored to be working together with them for this trial."
