Diabetics pill hope13th September 2007
Researchers claims that people with diabetes could soon be able to take a pill to control their condition instead of injections.
A team of experts at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen found that insulin can be covered by a coating, which means it could eventually be taken orally. Currently, the drug has to be injected so it is not broken down before it reaches the bloodstream but a pill would be welcome to sufferers who have a fear of needles. The research was presented at the British Pharmaceutical Conference in Manchester.
