Scientists working on an implantable ‘micro-pancreas’ with the ability to produce insulin in response to blood glucose levels are looking to test it in the UK.

Israeli firm Betalin Therapeutics will submit a request in August for the technology to take part in human clinical trials, having already been tested the technology on animals with some success.

The “bio-artificial” pancreas works by combining insulin-producing beta cells and a biological scaffolding, which is adapted from pig lung tissue and situates those cells and mimics their natural environment.

The engineered micro-pancreas would be implanted under the skin on the thigh, acting as a replacement pancreas for insulin functions. It is just visible to the naked eye.
