SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Rani Therapeutics, a pioneer in oral biologics, today announced that
Imran invented a swallowable capsule that delivers biologics without exposing medication to digestive enzymes in the intestinal tract. Once the RaniPill capsule is ingested, it stays protected until it enters the small intestine where it injects medication into the intestinal wall. Covered by more than 50 patents, the RaniPill capsule is suitable for many of the injectable drugs used by patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn's disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, hemophilia, among other diseases and conditions.
