Publication/Creation DateFebruary 11 2019
DescriptionA team of researchers from MIT, Harvard, and Novo Nordisk have developed a new drug capsule that could orally deliver insulin to the stomach, possibly becoming an alternative for injections that people with type 1 diabetes have to administer to themselves every day. The pill contains a needle made of compressed insulin that will inject the user once it enters the stomach.
