Microchip Implant Can Deliver Daily Dose Of Medication!

Filed under: HealthBodyMedicineScience!

Is this a glimpse of how we'll be taking all of our medications in the future?

Scientists have successfully implanted microchips in seven women with osteoporosis that emitted a dose of a bone-strengthening drug once a day without them even noticing.

The microchip, placed below the waistline, was able to deliver the drug as effectively as their otherwise "daunting" daily injection.

While more research is necessary, the study has been called "an important milestone" in medicine because many women with severe osteoporosis are prescribed a drug called teriparatid to build their bone density, but often quit it because of the tedious and painful injections.

This test involved a microchip that was able to store 20 doses of the drug, but the company behind the technology is setting its sights on testing a chip in 2014 that can hold 365 doses.

Osteoporosis is just the tip of the iceberg too. Other uses in the field of implanted medicine could include a contraceptive rod placed in the arm to release hormones preventing pregnancy AND a chip in the brain that targets the remaining cancer cells after doctors remove a brain tumor.

Pretty cool, right?
