Epidermal Adhesive Sensors to Enhance Continuous Glucose Measurement in Patients With Diabetes: The EASE Study

2019-09-18 03:27:40 | BioPortfolio


Self-testing of glucose by patients living with diabetes mellitus (DM) involves needles, which can cause discomfort or inconvenience; these and other factors can lead to decreased willingness to perform these checks that are vital to DM management. While technology has evolved, a needle-free glucose monitoring device is currently not available. The investigators are studying a glucose sensor that adheres to the skin, similarly to a temporary tattoo. This sensor can now obtain continuous readings. As it has not yet been tested in individuals with DM, this study will examine its accuracy and acceptability in these patients. Results from this clinical trial could serve as the basis for further development of a non-invasive, wearable glucose sensor that can provide measurements of glucose levels continuously.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

Diabetes mellitus induced experimentally by administration of various diabetogenic agents or by PANCREATECTOMY.
