Microchips Biotech creates microchip-based implants that are self-contained, hermetically sealed drug delivery devices. They can be implanted and removed within a doctor's office and can store hundreds of doses that can last months, or even years. The device can be controlled by the patient or the doctor via a wireless remote and can be pre-programmed to release the drug at precise times.
The core technology was originated out of labs at MIT and has been clinically validated in human studies delivering Parathyroid hormone (PTH) in osteoporosis patients.
It has since been under development for applications in multiple therapeutic indications including osteoporosis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and women’s contraception.
