Fully closed-loop insulin delivery edges closer with pramlintide–faster aspart system

A fully automated dual-hormone delivery system with pramlintide and faster-acting insulin aspart delivers overall glycemic control that is nearly as good as that achieved with a hybrid closed-loop system with the insulin only, report researchers at the virtual 56th EASD Annual Meeting.
