First wirelessly controlled drug-delivery chip successfully tested | KurzweilAI
Researchers from MIT and MicroCHIPS Inc. have developed and tested a programmable, wirelessly controlled  chip to administer daily doses of an osteoporosis drug normally given by injection.
This  is the first successful test of such a device and could help usher in a  new era of telemedicine — delivering health care over a distance,  say MIT professors Robert Langer and Michael Cima, who had the idea 15  years ago.
Pharmacy on the chip
“You could  literally have a pharmacy on a chip,” says Langer. “You can do remote  control delivery, you can do pulsatile drug delivery, and you can  deliver multiple drugs.”
