DENVER — The University of Colorado’s Anschutz Health and Wellness Center is enrolling patients with diabetes for a first-of-its-kind trial for a new treatment of the disease.

The trial is for EndoBarrier, a thin, flexible, tubed-shaped liner that forms a barrier between food and a portion of the intestinal wall.

The EndoBarrier works by blocking food from coming into contact with the first part of a patient’s intestine. Studies have found that when absorption is blocked there, it helps the body control blood glucose.
