Samir Mitragotri, a Professor in the Chemical Engineering Dept. at the University of California, Santa Barbara highlights the need of an alternative option for patients dealing with their daily insulin injections. Mitragotri specializes in targeted drug delivery and states, "With diabetes, there's a tremendous need for oral delivery….People take insulin several times a day and delivery by needles is a big challenge."

The new insulin pill would circumvent the discomfort associated with daily needle administered injections and this could potentially lead to more effective dosages and better care overall for diabetes.
Aside from the obvious benefits of oral drug delivery over needle based drug delivery, the insulin pill also has the benefit of taking a more direct route to the patients liver. Mitragotri stated, "When you deliver insulin by injection, it goes first through the peripheral bloodstream and then to blood circulation in the liver.
