The computer will live inside the man

February 28 2006

Israeli scientists have created a molecular computer that uses enzymes to work counts. Itamar Willner, designed molecular calculator with colleagues at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, believes that computers running on the enzyme, someday it will be possible to implant in the human body and used, for example, to regulate the release of drug metabolism system, writes New Scientist.

Most likely, it will be embedded in biosensor equipment used to monitor and adjust the patient's response to particular dosages of the drug.

"This is a computer that can be integrated into the human body - told Willner New Scientist. - It seems that the enzyme computer can be used to calculate the metabolic pathway."

"If such counters are built into living cells, we can imagine that they are playing the role of applications, such as" smart "drug delivery, when the therapeutic agent is created where there is a problem - says Amos. - Counters also provide a biological 'safety valve "not giving the cells to grow uncontrollably."
