A group of American scientists have invented bladder tablets to monitor signs of cancer that develop after taking them to the size of the ball in the stomach.
Scientists have inspired the idea of bloated fish, where the discs contain sensory sensors to monitor the temperature in summer for up to a month from the stomach to the mouth.
The tablet is made up of two types of "gel", which resembles the hydrologic resistance of gastric stenosis, where the size of the disc after insertion is 100 times greater than the original size within 15 minutes, to prevent the passage through the body.
Scientists say the disc, which will double the size of the ball ball, aims to detect cancer, stomach ulcers and any signs of an enemy.
The disc is made of super absorbent particles covered with a protective layer that protects it from fracture. It is submerged in many abdominal solutions and is mechanically pressed to imitate abdominal cramps.
"Hope is to get a" gel "tablet that the patient swallows in the stomach so that doctors can monitor the patient's health for a long time, says Dr. Xuanyi Chow, chief scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In other pig tests, small temperature sensors are incorporated into many discs, where devices have proven their ability to fully monitor the daily activity of the animal.
The researchers reported several reports in the Nature Connection magazine, confirming that these devices can feel a few things in the stomach, such as monitoring levels of acidity and also requiring the presence of bacteria or viruses.
It is also possible to install accurate cameras in these tablets, to make full images of tumors or ulcers.
Scientists have explained that tablets may be a substitute for gastric bubble surgery because they prevent excessive eating, which leads to low weight.
There will be no need for painful surgery for the growth of the stomach bubble after the use of these tablets, said Dr. Zhao.
