MIT Scientists Discover Size of Implant can Affect Rejection

(Gizmag.com) - MIT scientists discover size of implant can affect immune system rejection

A team of researchers from MIT has discovered that creating body implants at a certain size maximizes the amount of time they can spend operational in the body before being neutralized by the immune system. In the future, the research could lead to longer term treatment avenues for diseases that could do away with the need for painful and repeated injections.

Without doubt, the human immune system is a wondrous thing. Over the course of our species' short existence, it has protected us and evolved with us, but it also has the capacity to interfere and stymie avenues of treatment offered by advances in medical science. Such is the case with body implants, which are increasingly used as a long-term drug delivery method.
