Conditions such as chronic pain, cancer and diabetes, require medications that cannot be taken orally, but must be dosed intermittently, on an as-needed basis, over a long period of time. Researchers led by Daniel Kohane, from Children's Hospital Boston (Massachusetts, USA) have devised an innovative drug delivery technique to turn dosing on and off, deliver consistent doses and adjust doses according to the patient's need.
