Capsule to administer oral insulin, no more daily injections of insulin!

Scientists have discovered how to hide a dose in a tiny pill and pump drugs such as insulin from inside the stomach. According to Associated Press.

The idea of a tool in the form of a smart pill could inject the necessary dose inside the patient's stomach once swallowed!

Many drugs can not withstand the severe digestive system.

The researchers, led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said they have overcome the problem. They said on Thursday that when tested on pigs, the resorbable pill reduced blood sugar levels to levels comparable to conventional doses.

Further research is needed before testing on humans, according to a study published in the journal "Science".
