Injectable Nano-Network Helps Diabetics

nano-networkRecent developments from North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Children’s Hospital Boston researchers include injectable nanoparticles which release insulin. According to Dr. Zhen Gu, lead author of the paper describing the research, once the nano-network is injected, the “smart” system can detect above average blood sugar levels and release insulin accordingly. The new development can be especially beneficial for patients with type 1 diabetes and will mimic the activity of the pancreas in a healthy person.
