HEALTH.2012.2.4.3-1: Innovative approach to manage diabetes.
Taking into account state-of-the-art innovative research and technologies,the aim of this topic is to validate, in the preclinical and/or clinical setting, the performance and applicability of therapeutic devices or biological therapies aimed at improving diabetes management. This could include for instance glucose sensors, insulin delivery systems, devices that respond on low glucose levels to release glucagon or other insulin-counteracting therapies and could build on surgical, immunological, integrated physiology, cellular and bioartificial therapy approaches. Full attention needs to be paid to safety, bio-compatibility, interoperability and regulatory aspects as appropriate. Note: Limits on the EU financial contribution apply. These are implemented strictly as formal eligibility criteria
Funding scheme: SME-targeted Collaborative project (small or medium-scale focused research project)
Expected impact: Large prospective clinical trials have established the long-term benefits of restoring blood glucose to near-normal levels in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and its key role in reducing microvascular and macrovascular complications. However, glycemic control remains suboptimal in many patients with diabetes, even with widespread use of selfmonitoring of blood glucose, insulin pumps, and the introduction of insulin analogs. Results should lead to the development of more accurate detection, delivery and monitoring methods as well as strategies for the improved management of glycemia or contribute to solving current bottlenecks of restorative and regenerative approaches.
