The University of Dundee has been awarded

a £7million grant from the National Institute of

Health Research Global Health programme

to establish a major new Scotland-India

clinical partnership to combat diabetes.

The NIHR Global Health Research Unit on

Diabetes Outcomes Research project will see

Dundee's world-leading expertise in the use

of medical records to deliver improved care in

diabetes `twinned' with the large patient data

set (covering over 400,000 Indian diabetic

patients) collected by Dr Mohan's Diabetes

Specialities Centres, the largest clinical

network of diabetes care in India.

Diabetes in India and Scotland will be

compared and contrasted to determine

the common and specific problems in

both countries, with the aim of providing

an improvement in health and reduction in

health inequalities in India and Scotland.

The Dundee project is one of 33 research

units and groups sharing over £120 million

PARTNERSHIP TO TACKLE DIABETES

of funding for Global Health Research

announced by the Department of Health.

"Diabetes is a major problem in India

with 1 in 12 people affected, amounting

to 69 million individuals currently, which

is more than the entire UK population,"

says Professor Colin Palmer (right),

Chair of Pharmacogenomics at the

University of Dundee and lead for the

new research unit. "With increasing

economic development and lifestyle

changes those numbers are rapidly

increasing. Yet current knowledge

on how diabetes develops, how

patients respond to medications and

the causes of medical complications

that arise are largely derived from

studies on white European ancestry

populations. This is despite the fact

that diabetes in Europeans is very

different to diabetes in South Asians.

We need to understand more about

process for the Johnson & Johnson

Diabetes Care Companies announced in

January 2017, Johnson & Johnson is also

continuing to evaluate potential strategic

options for LifeScan, Inc., a world leader

in blood glucose monitoring with the

OneTouch brand of products, and also the

Calibra brand of insulin delivery devices.

*Due to the consultative nature of the

global withdrawal of Animas from the

insulin pump arena, it is not possible to

be specific about a date on this. However,

we will report again as soon as anything

further is known.

diabetes in different populations. There is

an urgent need for a large in-depth study

of the specific causes and consequences

of diabetes in India in order to identify

different subtypes of diabetes that exist

in India and understand how best to

manage each subtype. This project will

address that."

ANIMAS EXITS INSULIN

PUMP MARKET GLOBALLY

According to an announcement made

by the company on 5th October, Animas

Corporation is to close operations and

exit the insulin pump market in the US

and Canada immediately. The company

is to work with Medtronic as a partner-ofchoice to help ensure

a smooth transition

for patients on insulin pumps to Medtronic's

products.

The company will be exiting the insulin

pump market globally - including the UK -

at a future date, yet to be specified. Existing

users will be contacted directly in due

course, likely within the next few months*.

According to a report on Medtronic's

US website, "Animas will close its pump

business. As Animas' partner-of-choice for

this transition, our Medtronic team is ready

to help. We know that when it comes to your

diabetes management needs, it's a very

personal decision and our experienced

team is here to support you through

every step in the process."

Animas's announcement further

states, "Animas has discontinued the

sale of all Animas Vibe and OneTouch

Ping insulin pumps in the US and

Canada, effective immediately. A

decision and timing to exit countries

outside of the US and Canada is

subject to completing consultation

with relevant works councils. For the

patients, caregivers and healthcare

providers outside of the US and Canada

who currently use Animas pumps and

products, Animas will continue to sell

pumps and operate as usual.
