MEDICINES SHORTAGES?

Commenting on news stories about

the possibility of medical supplies being

jeopardized by the looming decision about

Britain leaving the EU, JDRF has affirmed

that it is committed to ensuring that the

needs of people with Type 1 diabetes are

taken into account and prioritised in the

event of a no-deal Brexit and is working

with the Department of Health and Social

Care on the situation for insulin supplies.

The UK government advises that

patients, GPs, hospitals and pharmacies

should not stockpile. Instead it has

requested that drug manufacturers

have a minimum of six weeks' supply of

stockpiled insulin, over and above their

usual operational buffer stocks.

Insulin manufacturers, Novo Nordisk

and Sanofi have stated they are increasing

their stockpiles to 16 and 14 weeks

respectively, while Lilly is holding several

months' supply. Now, Novo Nordisk has

announced it will be increasing supplies

to 18 weeks and joining other companies

in testing different shipping routes in the

event of delays at the UK's main port,

Dover. Sanofi is also looking to test two

alternative routes into the country, one

into the east coast from the Netherlands

and another route into the south coast

from France.

JDRF will continue to make the

Department of Health and Social Care

aware of our supporters' concerns

around insulin supplies and other type 1

consumables, in the event of a no deal

and will provide further updates as soon

as there are any.

Simon Dukes, chief executive of the

Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating

Committee (PSNC), has also commented

that there have been supply shortages for

a number of reasons and that "concerns

around a no-deal Brexit are likely to

exacerbate those ongoing issues".

Supply shortages and rising prices for

some medicines are being reported by

pharmacists and GPs with the possibility

of a no-deal Brexit being blamed.

ACCU-CHEK &

CELLNOVO

Cellnovo has signed a new collaboration

that allows for automatic data transfer

from Roche's Accu-Chek Bluetoothenabled

blood glucose meters* to

the Cellnovo Gen 3 System. This

smartphone data sharing product

enhancement builds on interoperability

of the Cellnovo Bluetooth and Android

platform, allowing for more choice and

improved user experience for people with

Type 1 diabetes, according to a press

release. Sophie Baratte, Chief Executive

Officer of Cellnovo, commented, "These

agreements are a demonstration of the

Cellnovo System's facility of connecting

with other devices."

Cellnovo markets the first connected

diabetes management platform based

on a locked-down Android smartphone

communicating via Bluetooth with a

small, discreet micro-pump.

*such as the Accu-Chek Guide blood

glucose monitoring device (distribution of

this in the UK is not yet confirmed).
