Otsuka Holdings Co., Ltd.

Drug Names(s): Aripiprazole with Proteus ingestible sensor

Description: Abilify/Proteus is a combination product of Abilify (aripiprazole) embedded with a Proteus ingestible sensor in a single tablet. When ABILIFY with the embedded ingestible sensor is taken, the ingestible sensor sends a signal to the wearable Proteus patch after it reaches the stomach. The patch records and time-stamps the information from the ingestible sensor in addition to collecting other patient metrics, including rest, body angle and activity patterns. This information is recorded and relayed to patients on a mobile phone or other Bluetooth-enabled device, and with their consent, to their physician and/or their caregivers. Patients view the information using a secure and local software application on their mobile phone or device. Physicians and caregivers view the data using secure web portals.
