Scientists deliver insulin via nanoparticles

U.S. researchers have developed a method of delivering insulin that uses a network of nanoscale particles. "This technology effectively creates a 'closed-loop' system that mimics the activity of the pancreas in a healthy person, releasing insulin in response to glucose-level changes," said Dr. Zhen Gu, assistant professor of biomedical engineering. The nano-network has been able to maintain normal blood sugar for up to 10 days in animal tests.
