Biosensors as Implantable Medical Devices for Personalized Medicine

This editorial from the Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics is an interesting look into the future of implantable biosensors and personalized medicine. “With advances in biosensors, bioelectronics, telemetry and nanotechnology, the long-term implantable sensor chips can enable a real-time diagnosis of biological responses (bone and muscle regeneration or cell growth, proliferation and differentiation around the medical devices), implant-related complications (such as infection, inflammation or cardiovascular disease), and other common diseases (such as diabetes and cancer), and thus provide real-time treatment if it is needed.”
