If such e-patches are developed for heart patients to monitor and control their heartbeats then it will be great boon for millions who are susceptible to heart trouble.

There are a myriad of transcutaneous drug delivery techniques and systems already out there including a nifty silicon device with micro "needles". Unless this device has a compelling advantage, it seems a better vehicle for fleecing investors.

This interesting article raises several questions. 1/ The photograph makes the patch appear to be about 7 inches long. Is it really that big? 2/ The article mentions that consumers would expect to pay less than $10 and that reimbursement agencies expect to pay between $35 and $83. Should the article have said that reimbursement agencies see this technology replacing injections which currently cost $35 and $83? 3/ Migraines have historically been difficult to treat with drugs. How effective is this system compared with current treatments? Is this patch simply a superior delivery system for the same drug as current patch technologies?

Very innovative technology and the market is there. The FDA is doing well by actually being prepared for most of these technologies.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
