DIABELOOP

KIT THAT'S COMING SOON

Diabeloop was founded

in 2015 and is based

in Grenoble, France.

Most members

of staff are based

here, though there is also an office in

Paris. In November 2018, Diabeloop's

first medical device, DBLG1, was CE

marked. This company is working on

delivering the system in Europe (France

and Germany at first) and later in the US.

Founder and CEO Eric Hunekerhas

experience medical devices field at GE

Healthcare, where he managed the

international localization business to a

ten-fold growth in sales. He has been

the driver of the technology side of

development.of Diabeloop's solutions

when Guillaume Charpentier co-founder

was looking into transforming his medical

project into a commerically available

solution. Co-CEO Mark Julien looks after

the financing and fund-raising.

Stephanie Jegu works for the

company looking after its brand and

communications. This is the first time

she's worked in the medical field, having

previously worked with companies

outside of the healthcare sector. Jegu has

had Type I diabetes for nearly a decade,

so can easily add insights as to the benefit

of the system. She explains, "DBLG1 is

described as a 'hybrid closed-loop insulin

delivery system'. It's 'hybrid' because

although the insulin delivery is automated

and personalized, the user still has to

enter information, such as carbs intake

and physical activity for the system to be

able to anticipate glucose variation and

adapt delivery and/or recommendations.

The system is designed to be easy to use

and has a friendly interface."

At the end of 2020, another device of

Diabeloop, DBL-hu, obtained CE-mark.

It targets highly unstable diabetes, which

is very complex to manage and people

who have it struggle to gain and maintain

decent blood glucose balance. The

clinical and metabolic consequences are

debilitating and lead to severe progressive

complications can develop. Diabeloop's

DBL-hu modular technological solution

is designed to provide people with

complex diabetes a more stable daily life,

reduced psychological distress, reduced

hypoglycemia and better overall diabetes

control.

Robust trials

Diabeloop pursues a programme of

clinical studies. Results for the DBL4K

clinical study with 15 participating children

are set to be published soon, and a study

on adolescents, (including unannounced

meal functionality) should start in 2021

Any closed loop system involves

a continuous glucose monitor (CGM)

working with an insulin delivery device via

an algorithm). Diabeloop currently works

with ViCentra's Kaleido insulin pump in

We talk to the people bringing us a closed loop system from

their base in Grenoble, France.
