dc.description.abstractThe era of insulin management of diabetes mellitus began with the discovery in 1922 by Banting and Best of insulin produced by the normal pancreas. Their initial method of insulin delivery was subcutaneous injection by syringe and needle, and that approach has continued for the past eighty years. The dream of patients with diabetes has been the possibility of being implanted with a “bionic pancreas”. The hope is that such a device would deliver insulin to the body in simulation of the normal behavior of the human pancreas. This monograph describes the pathway of discovery at the University of New Mexico in partnership with Sandia National Laboratories in the 1970’s that led to the first human implantation of a programmable insulin pump in 1981.en_US
