A Microneedle Pill as an Alternative to Injectable Drug Save
Carl Schoellhammerhas just won the Lemelson-MIT National Collegiate Student Prize for his invention - the microneedle pill. This capsule is covered in tiny needles coated in a “pH responsive coating” that makes it easier to swallow. The mechanics are such that it will deliver the injectable biologic in the gut when conditions are optimal for effect. Might this be a boom for biologic delivery?
