Microneedles For Painless Delivery Of Vaccines And Nanomedicines
For safer, cheaper, and painless delivery of vaccines and large, protein-based drugs, scientists want to create microarrays of needles short enough to avoid nerve cells but long enough to pierce the outer, protective layers of a person’s skin. Research teams have developed these so-called microneedles, but fabricating the tiny hypodermics typically requires numerous steps and takes hours to days.
