Here's an article from "MedPage Today"

Some article excerpts:

"An implantable microchip about the size of a flash memory stick that can be controlled wirelessly delivers doses of an osteoporosis drug with the same efficacy as injections, researchers found."

"The tiny chip used in the study contains 20 micro-reservoirs that hold individual doses, and each is hermetically sealed to preserve the drug. A dose is released when an electrical signal -- which can be pre-programmed or initiated wirelessly -- melts the metallic membrane covering the reservoir, releasing the drug."
