Melanie Gonick/MIT MIT scientists developed and tested in pigs a swallowed capsule filled with electronics and genetically engineered living cells that accurately detected signs of bleeding in the gut. According to researchers, the pill will have to be made smaller for testing in humans but could eventually be used to diagnose ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease and colon cancer. The pill works by using modified DNA from bacteria that allows cells to light up when they detect blood, then the light signal is relayed by electronics to a smartphone. Scientists have developed...

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have built an ingestible capsule that will be able to diagnose disease in the gastrointestinal tract without using invasive procedures, according to a new paper in the journal Science. "You'd normally need to go in and do an endoscopy or colonoscopy to diagnose these problems," said Mark Mimee, an MIT Ph.D. student in microbiology and lead author. "As you can imagine, that's very costly and uncomfortable for patients." [Read More]

(May 24, 2018) It has been two years since a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor asked Nantucket officials if the island's residents would welcome the release of tens of thousands of genetically-altered mice on the island in hopes of battling tick-borne diseases. At the time, it was just an idea, with no research or funding in place, but Kevin Esvelt and his team have been plugging along, visiting several island communities here and on Martha's Vineyard and Long Island and...
