A group of scientists and engineers working out of MIT, led by Robert Langer, have developed a unique pill that could be exceptionally useful in long-term drug delivery .
What's great about this pill is its two-sided build -- one side holds the pill in place, while the other side effectively repels food and liquids that could damage it. Ultimately, this means that the pill is capable of staying inside the patient's gastrointestinal tract for very long periods of time, making it an ideal solution for long-term delivery of drugs into the system.
Ultimately, this two-sided unique pill could revolutionize the treatment of a wide variety of conditions which would stand to benefit from this truly unique form of pill structure.
