Bio molecular Needling System for DDS and healthcare

New transdermal drug delivery system by using dissoluble micro needle patch will be introduced. The microneedle mediated drug delivery system has been developed to provide painless self-administration of biological drug with patient friendly manner. Especially, dissolving microneedles, which deliver the target drugs as the drug-loaded microneedle dissolves into the skin, have been spotlighted recently. We investigate a novel fabrication method to achieve the user-friendliest, low-cost, and safest way for dissoluble microneedle patches with vaccine delivery, several medical treatments, and even glucose sensing.
