GlySens Incorporated featured in Scientific American
SAN DIEGO, CA - May 1, 2012 - GLYSENS INCORPORATED is featured in the May 2012 issue of Scientific American, in an article entitled “Smart Implantable Devices”. In the article, author Katherine Harmon reports: “A new implantable glucose sensor made by GlySens in San Diego might someday offer millions of diabetics a wireless monitoring system of their own. The device takes near-continuous readings under the skin of a patient’s glucose level- which is then correlated to the level in the blood. The result: far more accurate and more complete information for guiding insulin dosing and timing than can be achieved by testing blood from finger pricks. And because the sensor is implanted, it requires less upkeep than current external monitors.”Read More>

A small San Diego medical device company and a UCSD scientist believe they’ve come up with the solution to a problem that has long vexed people with diabetes: a device that constantly monitors blood-sugar levels without painful finger pricks or frequent maintenance.
GlySens is seeking permission from the Food and Drug Administration to launch a pilot study testing its implanted wireless sensor in about a dozen people with diabetes. The request came after researchers completed trials of the device on animals.
On Wednesday, University of California San Diego bioengineering professor David Gough and several GlySens researchers published results from the final study on a pair of pigs in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
