Medtronic shows early results from next-gen MiniMed
The latest generation of the Medtronic MiniMed insulin pump met both safety and glycemic endpoints in a study presented at the conference.
The MiniMed 780G closed-loop system is indicated for treating Type 1 diabetes in people aged 7 to 80 years old. It is designed to automate the delivery of both basal insulin and correction boluses every five minutes to help people with diabetes avoid highs and lows with greater ease, according to Fridley, Minn.-based Medtronic.
It also enables patients to program insulin action time from two to eight hours, and has an adjustable target setting as low as 100 mg/dL. The MiniMed 780G won the CE Mark last week, but has not been approved for use in the U.S.
