Defymed is a spin -off of the “Centre Europeen d’etude du Diabete” (CeeD) which has been working on the conception of a bio-artificial pancreas since 1996.
This work was carried out in tight collaboration with the “Centre de Transfert de Technologie du Mans” (CTTM) and STATICE in the frame of two research European programs: FP4 (1996-2000) and FP6 (2004-2007). This work has led to the development of a prototype of MAILPAN® medical device.
The bioartificial pancreas is believed to be the most physiological solution under development, and the one that could bring the ideal autonomy to Type 1 diabetic patients.
The strategy of encapsulation involves placing insulin-secretory cells within semi-permeable devices made of friendly and biocompatible materials. This kind of device should allow the passage of small molecules such as insulin and glucose but prevent the entry of molecules of the immune system that could kill the encapslated cells. Thus, encapsulating these cells should prevent allograft rejection and autoimmune reaction.
