MAGNETICALLY CONTROLLED PILLS: NEW ERA IN DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM

  • Rajiv Jaithlia

Abstract

As orally administered pill often will not dissolve at exactly the right site in the gastrointestinal tract where the medicine can be absorbed into the bloodstream, so a new drug delivery system developed which includes magnetic pill (tiny magnet inside a gelatin capsule) which solve the problem by safely holding a pill in place in the intestine wherever it needs to be. The two main component of the system are conventionally-looking gelatin capsules that contain a tiny magnet, and an external magnet, external magnet use to guide the location of that capsule in intestine. This new technology can be used as a new drug delivery method for cancer drugs or drugs targeting GI diseases.
