    Default FDA approves pill w/ sensor that digitally tracks if patients have ingested their med

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the first drug in the U.S. with a digital ingestion tracking system. Abilify MyCite (aripiprazole tablets with sensor) has an ingestible sensor embedded in the pill that records that the medication was taken. The product is approved for the treatment of schizophrenia, acute treatment of manic and mixed episodes associated with bipolar I disorder and for use as an add-on treatment for depression in adults. http://s2027422842.t.en25.com/e/es?s...d=1321&elqat=1

    Obviously, there are various avenues through which people other than the patient could abuse these technologies to the detriment of the patients's privacy, self-determination, individual choice, etc. Chilling, in my opinion.

    Ora, please stay current with my announcements. You can post anything that doedsn't require the Enter/Return key. I am still waiting for my vB guru to recover from a long illness and turn his attention to the site. Patience, please!
