Abbott and Tandem

Diabetes Care are

advancing development

of integrated

technologies for future

automated insulin delivery systems.

These would combine Abbott's worldleading continuous

glucose monitoring

(CGM) technology with Tandem's

innovative insulin delivery systems to

provide more options for people to

manage their diabetes. This agreement

covers the technical development

of device integration and associated

commercial support activities.

John Sheridan, president and CEO of

Tandem Diabetes Care has stated,"We're

excited to integrate our insulin delivery

systems with Abbott's glucose-sensing

technology, and we look forward to

expanding options for our customers

so that they can combine devices that

best suit their personal needs. We are

proud to have an insulin pump capable of

remote software updates that can make

access to future integrations possible for

in-warranty t:slim X2 users at the time of

release without requiring a new pump."

The need for interoperability between

diabetes devices is widely recognized.

Tandem's t:slim X2 insulin pump was

the first to receive U.S. Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) clearance in a new

device category called alternate controller

enabled (ACE) infusion pumps in 2019.

The special controls for ACE pumps allow

for reliable and secure communication

with compatible external devices. Abbott's

FreeStyle Libre 2 integrated continuous

glucose monitoring (iCGM) system was

recently cleared by the FDA for adults and

children (4 years and older).

Jared Watkin, senior vice president,

Diabetes Care, Abbott adds, "Abbott

is working with our partners to bring

integrated technologies at an affordable

price for people with diabetes who rely

on using insulin pumps. By combining

our glucose sensing technology with

Tandem's proven insulin delivery systems,

we will be able to create a cohesive

ecosystem for people with diabetes that

can fit easily into their daily lives."

The companies will focus initial

commercial activities in the U.S. and

Canada with additional countries coming

in the future.

Abbott's FreeStyle Libre 2 system is

the only iCGM system with optional realtime alarms that measures

glucose levels

every minute, meeting the highest level

of accuracy standards. The FreeStyle

Libre 2 next-generation sensor is worn on

the back of the upper arm for up to 14

days and with a one-second scan using

a handheld reader, users can see their

glucose reading, trend arrow and eighthour history.

In agreement

As reported by Drug Delivery Business

in early July 2020, "Two major insulin

pump makers - Medtronic and Tandem

Diabetes Care - announced a nonexclusive patent cross-license

agreement

related to diabetes treatment tech. The

companies said the agreement will

allow them to focus on innovation while

avoiding the distraction of potential legal

disagreements.

The deal is another example of how

medical device companies are trying to

avoid unnecessary costs - including

potentially money-draining litigation

and intellectual property cases - amid

the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting

recession. The cross-license agreement

involves Medtronic and Tandems' existing

products, as well as new products for

at least the next five years. The two

companies also promised not to clone

each other's products. No money is

changing hands as part of the deal.

Further terms of the deal were not

disclosed. The news comes nearly two

weeks after Abbott and Tandem Diabetes

Care completed their agreement.

Meanwhile in the US, Tandem

Diabetes Care (TDC) has bought an insulin

app, Sugarmate. As written by Omar

Ford for Medical Device and Diagnositc

Industry (MD+DI), the deal is for an

undisclosed sum whereby Sugarmate will

become a subsidiary and will be led by
