The artificial pancreas (also referred to as closed-loop system) brings us one step closer to the decade-long dream of automated insulin delivery. The closed-loop system directs subcutaneous insulin delivery corresponding to the glucose concentration using a control algorithm. Evidence shows that closed-loop systems substantially improve glucose control and quality of life; however, fully automated closed-loop systems have not yet been accomplished. Active input from patients is required for mealtime insulin dosing and corrections. This article provides an overview on the current state of development of the artificial pancreas in the treatment of diabetes.
