- Children with Diabetes was at the 59th Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association. Our booth was very busy--hence the abbreviated "What's New" report this week. Watch for a report next week on what we learned, including information on two new pumps seeking FDA approval, new blood testing devices that take even less blood than current meters, and several new continuous blood glucose monitors under development.
- Camp Ivy is a day camp in Hampton, Georgia.
- FDA approves MiniMed continuous glucose sensor.
- The Xenotransplantation Subcommittee of the US Food and Drug Administration met on June 3-4 1999 in Bethesda, Maryland to seek expert and public input into the creation of a regulatory framework. There is a brief report on that meeting at The Islet Foundation.
- Islet Sheet Medical has news about their research into a sheets of implanted islet cells.
- Last week's poll asked readers how they dispose of sharps while at school and at work. This week's poll asks readers if they would be interested in using an insulin pump only at night.
