SENCELL FROM LIFECARE

REPEAT CONTACT ADVISED

Patients who see the same doctor over

again have lower death rates, a study

suggests (as reported by the BBC). The

benefits applied to visits to GPs and

specialists and were seen across different

cultures and health systems. University of

Exeter researchers said the human aspect of

medical practice was "potentially life-saving"

but had been neglected. GPs' leaders said

they recognised the value of patients seeing

'their own' doctor.

Because of intense workforce pressures,

however, this could mean waiting even

longer for an appointment, the Royal

College of GPs said. Continuity of care

is known to be particularly beneficial

for patients with chronic conditions,

long-term mental health issues and

complex needs. The study, published

in BMJ Open, analysed the results of

22 studies in nine countries, including

England, France, US, Canada and

South Korea. Eighteen of the studies

indicated that contact with the same

doctor over an average of two years

meant fewer deaths over the periods

Norwegian life-science company Lifecare

has gone public on the stock exchange

in Oslo in order to continue its advanced

development of solutions for diabetes.

Lifecare researches and develops miniature

CGM sensors called Sencell.

Rune Frisvold, CEO, Lifecare says,

"Sencell is an implantable glucose

sensor that is injected under the skin on

the arm. The aim is that the sensor is in

the body for a minimum of six months

detects changing glucose levels by

measuring osmotic pressure. We can

read the glucose levels continuously.

These levels will be communicated

wirelessly to your watch or phone in

proximity. We are going to finalize the

clinical trials, apply for European approval

and develop a working prototype within

the next three years."

studied, compared with other patients.

The researchers said continuity of care

was important and should be given a

higher priority in healthcare planning.

Prof Philip Evans, from the University

of Exeter Medical School, said:

"Continuity of care happens when a

patient and a doctor see each other

repeatedly and get to know each other.

This leads to better communication,

patient satisfaction, adherence to

medical advice and much lower use of

hospital services."

Beta Bionics has received FDA approval

to begin recruitment for home-use studies

testing the insulin-only configuration of its

iLet bionic pancreas system in a series

of trials in adults and children with Type

1 diabetes (T1D). This trial is the first to

use the iLet device, which is capable of

dosing only insulin, only glucagon, or both

hormones as needed (referred to as being

bi-hormonal). Embedded in the system

are clinically tested dosing algorithms

driven by machine learning that calculate

and dose insulin and/or glucagon as

needed based on data from CGM. The

iLet is designed to autonomously control

the wearer's blood-glucose levels and

continuously adapt to their insulin needs.

The iLet to be used in this trial integrates

glucose data from the Dexcom G5 CGM.
