Rajesh R. S.*., Remya S. B., Jaghatha T., Lekshmi N. G., Sonia Ninan

ABSTRACT

With the objective of improving efficacy and morbidity much research has been going to find ideal system for drug delivery within body. It is great advantage to find drug delivery device that is capable of controlled or continuous release of wide variety of drug. Microchip drug delivery system is the most recently used system of delivering the drug for a great duration of time without the intercession of the patient to whom it is fixed. It consists of number of sockets, which release the drug at the fixed intervals each at a time. Thousands of reservoirs can be fabricated on a single microchip using micro fabrication. The molecule to be delivered is inserted into reservoir by injection. The reservoir can contain multiple drugs or other molecule in variable dosages. The microchip might be integrated with a tiny power supply and controlled by a microprocessor, remote control, or biosensors. Release from an active device can be controlled by a preprogrammed microprocessor.
