MAGNETICALLY CONTROLLED PILLS: NEW ERA IN DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM
AbstractAs 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.
