DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM
The limitations of conventional drug delivery systems
While it is usually possible to deliver biological drug substances by injection, more than 10 percent of the world's population experience difficulties with their medical treatment because they suffer from injection phobia.
Vaccines and biological drugs incur high distribution costs due to the need to refrigerate or freeze them and hence cannot be supplied to underdeveloped countries seamlessly due to the poor transportation infrastructure.
Needles contaminated with another patient's blood are the most dangerous form of medical waste as 1.3 million people are killed each year due to infection by a contaminated syringe.
MICROARRAY PATCHES (MAPs)
A new concept of drug delivery system
That overcomes the limitations of conventional transdermal delivery
Soluble microarray patches, also called "painless injections", are a type of transdermal delivery system that delivers drugs efficiently by penetrating the skin with a needle as thin as a mosquito's proboscis. This new concept of drug delivery system eliminates pain, trauma, infection, fear, and repulsion, which are the main disadvantages of conventional syringes.
Since this delivery system does not involve passing a drug through the gastrointestinal tract, it can be administered irrespective of pH, enzymes, food or gastrointestinal tract movements that affect drug absorption. It has other advantages of being simple to use and enabling long-term, continuous administration as well as easy control of blood concentration.
Patch-type painless injection
DISSOLVING MICROARRAY PATCHES (MAPs)
the stratum corneum
Active delivery of ingredients
A dissolving microarray patch is a method that delivers drugs effectively by penetrating the skin with a needle structure as thin as a mosquito's string. The microneedle patch is a new concept of drug delivery system, also called a patch-type painless injection, that combines a patch's simplicity with an injection's efficient drug delivery.
Features of the Microarray Patches
Delivery of polymer materials
The soluble microarray patches can contain various active ingredients such as DNA, vitamins, hormones and peptides. The solidified active ingredients are delivered to the body by a microneedle that penetrates the skin barrier to maximize the effect.
Storage at room temperature and convenient distribution
