Abstract
(EN) The present method and apparatus seek to provide a method and apparatus for at least delivering an agent at a specific location in the intestinal tract remaining stationary at the location over an extended period of time. There is thus provided in accordance with an example of the current method and apparatus an apparatus including one or more expandable portions having at least two expandable compartments or two or more expandable compartments wherein the expandable compartments or portions expand and contract, alternately non-invasively anchoring the apparatus in place by pressing against an organ wall that contracts and relaxes in a peristaltic wave so that to maintain the apparatus stationary at its location within a lumen defined by the wall.
(FR) L'objectif de l'invention est de mettre au point un procédé et un appareil pour au moins administrer un agent en un emplacement spécifique dans le tractus intestinal de sorte qu'il reste à demeure à cet emplacement pendant une période de temps prolongée. Cet objectif est atteint, selon un exemple de réalisation de l'invention, au moyen d'un appareil comprenant une ou plusieurs parties expansibles présentant au moins deux compartiments expansibles, lesdites parties expansibles ou lesdits compartiments expansibles se déployant et se contractant, maintenant en place l'appareil en alternance de manière non invasive en le plaquant contre une paroi d'organe qui se contracte et se relâche dans une onde péristaltique de façon à maintenir l'appareil immobile à son emplacement à l'intérieur d'une lumière définie par la paroi.
