Simple Dissolvable Patch Administers Vaccines
A new vaccine delivery method may prove to be a boon for developing nations.
Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have created a dissolvable patch that can deliver vaccine into the skin painlessly. Each patch consists of microscopic needles made from a special blend of vinyl pyrrolidone and freeze-dried vaccine and simply has to be pressed against the skin which causes the microneedles to dissolve in the body’s fluids.
