Nerve impulse control is the brain child of Galvani Bioelectronics. A new way to support patients with conditions such as type 2-diabetes, arthritis, and asthma. It may be just what the doctor of the future orders!
Control Nerve Impulse to Control Disease Technology
Controlling human nerve cells with electricity could treat a range of diseases including arthritis, asthma and diabetes, a new company says.
Galvani Bioelectronics hopes to bring a new treatment based on the technique before regulators within seven years.
The sensors send their findings back to the brain, via a nerve, so the organ can coordinate the body’s response to sugar in the bloodstream.
“It isn’t just a one-trick-pony, it is something that if we get it right could have a new class of therapies on our hands,” Mr Famm said.
But he said the field was only “scratching the surface” when it came to understanding which nerve signals have what effect in the body.
Verily chief technology officer Brian Otis said: “Bioelectronic medicine is a new area of therapeutic exploration, and we know that success will require the confluence of deep disease biology expertise and new highly miniaturised technologies.
Nerve impulse control sounds promising for our future medical care. Combining the deep diease biology with miniaturiezed technology will give us hope for improving formerly difficult-to-manage disease conditions.
