Article Excerpt:

Healthcare costs have spiraled out of control in most countries, especially the U.S., where people can't seem to lead healthy lifestyles. The latest data (from 2016) shows that the adult obesity rates exceeded 35% in five states (led by WV at 37.7%), 30% in 25 states, and 25% in 46 states. Estimates are that obesity costs the U.S. more than $150 billion in healthcare each year. Part of this is due to 1 in 11, or about 30 million Americans, having diabetes, a chronic condition that is often helped by weight loss.

Diabetes is characterized by high levels of blood sugar (also called "blood glucose"). Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas by the islets of Langerhans that regulate the amount of glucose in the blood. For people with diabetes, insulin is either not produced (Type 1 diabetes), not enough is produced, or the body doesn't use it right (Type 2 diabetes). People with Type 1 diabetes are insulin-dependent, meaning they must use a device (albeit a syringe or some type of automatic device) to inject insulin into their body to survive. Type 2 diabetic subjects can be either insulin-free or insulin-dependent, based upon their stage of disease.

Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes, accounting for about 95% of all cases. It is estimated that there are more than 40 million people with diabetes – both Type 1 and Type 2 – worldwide.

At the leading edge of new devices and therapeutic cells for treatment of diabetes is a small powerhouse, London, Ontario-based Sernova Corp. (TSX-Venture:SVA) (OTCQB:SEOVF), the creator of the revolutionary Cell Pouch System™. The Cell Pouch is a novel implantable and scalable medical device that forms a favorable environment within its chambers for the housing and long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells. The cells could be integral to any number of functions, including releasing necessary proteins or hormones missing from the body to treat chronic diseases, such as diabetes, as an alternative to daily administration of drugs.
