What do you think about the artificial pancreas project?

Poll dates: January 12 - 19, 2011
Total Votes: 176

On January 13, 2010, the JDRF announced a partnership with Animas Corporation to develop a closed-loop artificial pancreas -- a major advancement in the treatment of type 1 diabetes. We asked CWD readers what they thought about this announcement shortly thereafter (see poll from January 13, 2010).

It's been a year since that announcement, and we thought we'd ask again. Based on this unscientific poll, CWD families strongly support the artificial pancreas project. Just over half fully support it, and another 22% support it but worry that this project will take resources away from cure-related research, very similar to last year.
