MINIMED 780G CE MARK

LOW COST INSULIN IN THE US

Medtronic has secured a CE

(Conformité Européenne) Mark

for MiniMedâ„¢ 780G Advanced

Hybrid Closed Loop System.

The next generation closed loop

insulin pump system features

auto-correction algorithm and

bluetooth connectivity, designed

to further simplify Type 1 diabetes

management

The system automates the

delivery of both basal insulin

and correction boluses every

five minutes to help people with

diabetes avoid highs and lows

with greater ease. The MiniMed

780G system enables the

personalization of glucose goals with an

adjustable target setting as low as 100

mg/dL (5.5 mmol/L) - lower than any

other advanced hybrid closed loop system

- and is designed to help stabilize blood

sugar levels and further improve glucose

control.

In addition to the automated algorithm

which includes technology from DreaMed

Diabetes, the MiniMed 780G system was

designed to be easy to use by requiring

less input from the user. With the addition

of Bluetooth connectivity, the MiniMed

780G system will enable users and their

care partners to see real-time glucose

data and trends on compatible iOS and

Android smartphones via apps. The

system is expected to begin shipping later

this year in select countries in the EU.

The American Diabetes Association

(ADA) and the Centers for Medicare and

Medicaid Services (CMS) have announced

a Part D Senior Savings Model, which will

limit the cost of insulin for participating

seniors to a maximum of $35 for a 30day supply.

People with diabetes account for one

of every three dollars spent on drugs in

the United States, and they spend about

2.5 times more on healthcare expenses

than other Americans. The ADA has been

pressing federal and state policymakers

for years to help lower the cost of insulin

and other drugs for people living with

diabetes - 7m of whom are insulindependent. The CMS savings program

is the first federal measure to drive insulin

costs down.

"Together, we are helping 3.3m seniors

access insulin more affordably," said

Tracey D. Brown, CEO of the American

Diabetes Association, "The American

Diabetes Association is committed to

continuing the fight to make insulin and

other drugs more affordable so that

people living with diabetes can thrive,

particularly in these challenging times."

Spirit Health has

adapted its structured

diabetes education

programme

EMPOWER from

face-to-face meetings

to a virtual service

using video calls as

a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Spirit

now runs three courses a week for up

to 20 newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetes

patients across the UK.

Claire Pridige, Education Service

Manager, Spirit Health, explains: "It's so

important to be able to support newly

diagnosed diabetes patients, many

of whom will be anxious about their

condition, and arguably even more so than

usual during this time. Two of our trained

diabetes educators have been able to

convert rooms in their homes to provide

the specialist education online, using

video conferencing and chat facilities to

help engage patients and encourage

dialogue, which is an important part of

the programme. So far, the feedback we

have received has been overwhelmingly

positive."

EMPOWER was designed specifically

for people with newly diagnosed Type

2 diabetes. It consists of a structured

curriculum delivered in a single session

lasting 3-4 hours. The lesson plan

encourages active and practical

involvement of participants, along with

the use of problem-solving models,

aids identification, and planning of

individualised strategies and interventions

to help patients self-manage their

diabetes. Participants set goals, and

clinical and biometric data are captured at

6 and 12-to-14 months by patients' GPs.
