Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


The purpose is to perform an early investigation on the safety and performance of an Automated Glucose Control (AGC) algorithm using the OmniPod® Insulin Management System and gather clinical data that will be used to make improvements or modifications to the algorithm for subsequent studies in adults, adolescents and children with type 1 diabetes.

Official Title

Known history of myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke within the past 6 months 9. Known history of seizure disorder 10. Known history of adrenal insufficiency 11. Current renal or hepatic disease 12. Untreated or unstable hypothyroidism or celiac disease (per investigator's judgment) 13. Currently undergoing cancer treatment 14. Currently undergoing systemic treatment with steroids or immunosuppressive medication 15. History of any chronic infections that would interfere with participation in the study or place study personnel at undue risk due to blood-borne contaminants 16. Current illness that would interfere with participation in the study 17. Untreated or inadequately treated mental illness 18. Current alcohol abuse per investigator's judgment 19. Electrically-powered implants that may be susceptible to RF interference 20. Currently participating in another clinical study testing an investigational drug or device or participation in a clinical study during which an investigational drug was used within the preceding 30 days 21. Unable to follow clinical protocol for the duration of the study or is otherwise deemed unacceptable to participate in the study per the investigator's clinical judgment.
