Does this mean Contact's tiny time pills are no longer doing the 
trick???  damn.

Given that you're at McKinsey, unless you're new, you probably already 
know that studies addressing these issues appear time to time 
in the medical journals.  A search of medline should snoot them all out.
Start with drug delivery.  Then winnow out the mechanical pumps and dose 
monitors unless you're interested in them as well. 

Have fun.
