(The Gist of Science Reporter) Innovative Pill [APRIL-2019]

Innovative Pill

  • A team of researchers from MIT, Harvard, and Novo Nordisk, the world leader in insulin production, have now developed an innovative pill that reliably attaches itself to the walls of the stomach to automatically inject the drug into the bloodstream.
  • It makes sure that after swallowing its injection needle is positioned against the wall of the stomach.
  • Insulin is then pushed through to deliver therapy, all without the patient having to do more than simply swallow the pill.
  • The pill mainly consists of a biodegradable polymer and small steel parts, so there’s little fear of side effects from the pill itself.
