Professor finds new way to administer drugs
Chemical engineering professor Keith Johnston, who specializes in pharmaceutical nanotechnology and protein-drug delivery, said the capsules are challenging to develop, but patients will prefer to take their medicine using the new drug technology.
"It does have the potential to allow an alternative to using needles for an injection," Johnston said. "Patients would find it very attractive overall."
The scientists have run tests on animals and cells, and they are in the process of licensing their technology so they can perform clinical studies and file the drug with the Food and Drug Administration.
"No one has reported anything like this," Peppas said. "It's revolutionizing the field of protein delivery."
