A futuristic "robot" tablet without metal or springs has just passed its first human test in February, according to IEEE Spectrum . The intestinal wall is filled with a needle preparation thanks to an inflatable bottle. The first human test successfully tested part of the design of the inflatable bottle – drug-filled needles will be tested in a second human study.
RaniPill, developed and patented by Rani Therapeutics, has already undergone 100 animal studies and has recently completed human research, which means that it can one day revolutionize the way in which drugs are being used.
Once it has swallowed and made its way into the intestine, the RaniPill shell dissolves. This is the release of two gases that are mixed to create a carbon dioxide that inflates a cylinder that pushes the soluble needle into the intestinal wall. The design does not use springs or metal.
And no, you will not even notice that it is, or inflate the bowel in the intestine. Rani Therapeutics claims that her pills will not cause pain, unlike skin injuries, and may lower the cost of the drug for most medications.
The test in humans consisted of 20 sub-items, half of which were eaten up to the absorption of the tablet and
The food had almost no effect, except for the delay of the time needed to transfer the tablet's residue. Several X-rays have confirmed the location of the pill as it has broken through the bodies of the subjects.
