The scientists have created a pill that could change the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other digestive disorders. This medication will allow physicians to obtain accurate data about the state of the patients’ gastrointestinal tract.
The pill passes through the digestive tract analyzing the key moments (such as how fast it passes to the intestine, what the acidity, temperature and pressure are). All the collected information will be displayed on a portable computer with a monitor. For a few days, it will be attached to the belt of the person.
The employees of the Princess Grace Hospital in London became the first European experts to test the pill. According to them, the uniqueness of this pill is that it not only transfers the image of the digestive tract, as its counterparts do, but assesses the state of the organism as well.
To be examined with the help of drugs is not a cheap thing. At Princess Grace Hospital, it will cost 1750 pounds.
