NO RATINGS
I have been reminded of this story because of a slideshow I recently did about technologies that make us super human: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=272872


Intelligent drug delivery was one of them. I think some of these new innovations hold great promise, especially for patients of cancer and other diseases with very harsh treatments. I wathced my mother suffer with cancer and during the last few weeks of her life she was very tired and had very little quality of life due to the drugs she was taking (that didn't work anyway). If we could focus drug delivery at least people receiving treatment might not feel the negative side effects and can do some of the things they enjoy doing, even if the treatment ultimately does not work.
