A pump from Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) automatically calculated and delivered the right amount of insulin to patients with Type 1 diabetes at night in a study involving 20 adults. The diabetics' blood-sugar levels were in the recommended range for over 90% of the night. The subjects were under supervision on an overnight visit to testing facilities during the study; J&J plans to conduct another of these feasibility trials before starting evaluations in which the patients use the device at home.
