Diabetes: Symptoms, Treatment and Latest Research
Intarcia Therapeutics Inc. has emerged with an implantable drug-delivery pump which is suggested to have been proved superior to currently existent Merck's Januvia drug.

Sized of a matchstick, this pump called ITCA 650, comes loaded with a whole year of supply of commonly used diabetes drug Exenatide.

Quote:ITCA 650 is implanted in abdominal tissue and can release the medicine continuously in minute quantities ensuring a steady state of medicine availability in the body and keeping the blood sugar levels in check.

The results have come post a year-long study involving 535 patients with Type 2 diabetes. Intarcia expects to publish the trial results in a journal and exhibit in medical meetings.
