Oral Injections For Treatments Of Rheumatoid Arthritis
By Sacha Heppell - July 02, 2019
Moving injections to a capsule for better patient outcomes in treating chronic disease. SmartTab is working to save lives and making Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment as effective and painless as possible. The patient would swallow a capsule instead of the pain of an injection once a day or once a week.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder it can affect the joints and is capable of damaging numerous parts of the body. Rheumatoid arthritis is currently treated with biologics, meaning a patient has to inject themselves weekly. Swallowing a pill is not an option because the proteins in biological therapies will not survive digestive enzymes, whose role is to break things down.
Biologic therapies have been developed to treat the following: Diabetes, Colon cancer, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Crohn's disease, Multiple sclerosis and more. The wirelessly powered and remote controlled InjectTab powered by the SmartTab wireless platform would remain intact traveling to the targeted area and inject the active ingredients into the side of the intestinal wall within the GI tract.
“OUR LONG-TERM VISION IS THAT THE SMARTTAB WILL BE USED BY EVERY PERSON, IN EVERY HOUSEHOLD, IN EVERY COUNTRY TO HELP INDIVIDUALS LEAD BETTER LIVES.”
