Abbott Laboratories received FDA clearance for its Freestyle Libre 3 continuous glucose monitoring system (CGM) just before the kickoff of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) annual meeting June 3 followed by breakthrough device designation for a combined CGM and continuous ketone monitoring system.
Abbott Laboratories Inc. announced U.S. FDA clearance for its next-generation Freestyle Libre 3 continuous glucose monitor (CGM) system for people aged 4 years and older with diabetes. Accuracy of the sensor was evaluated in a non-randomized, multicenter, single-arm study with 100 people on intensive insulin therapy (95, aged 6 years and older). Results from the pivotal trial were released May 31, showing it is the first CGM to demonstrate a mean absolute relative difference (MARD) below 8%, indicating it will be one of the most accurate sensors on the market.
Ascensia Diabetes Care Holdings AG aims to reduce the pain associated with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) just a bit with a new cost structure for Senseonics Holdings Inc.’ Eversense E3 CGM. The system, which lasts a ground-breaking six months without replacement, received FDA clearance in February.
