And the FDA’s heart grew three sizes that day…!

And what happened then…?

Well…in Who-ville they say

That the FDA’s small heart grew three sizes that day!

And the minute his heart didn’t feel quite so tight,

He whizzed with his load in the bright morning light!

He brought the T:slim, iBGStar, iPro2, and the Veo!

And he… HE HIMSELF…!

Gave AP draft guidance the OK-o!

No one’s getting these in their stockings yet, but the ice may be melting as approvals for new products and trials trickle through.

Jeffrey Brewer (JDRF) just posted a thank you to everyone who helped bring about the FDA’s Artificial Pancreas guidance approval (which covers requirements for in-home AP trials), and it’s quite the list: endocrinologists, diabetes organizations (AACE, ADA, AADE, Endocrine Society), Children’s Congress participants, Congressional members (see? – they did accomplish something this year!), grass-roots advocates, petition signers, and the T1D community in general. Likely that includes YOU. 🙂

JDRF’s still waiting to see how guidance requirements will really play out when trials get underway, but they’re “cautiously optimistic.” Joshua Levy and Amy Tendrich have great analyses.

As Suess would say – with everyone making a racket, the FDA heard loud and clear,

We are here! We are here! We are here! We are here!
