Skin patches for influenza vaccine under development at Emory.

Potentially people could administer the vaccine themselves, perhaps after receiving in the mail. .. Skin patches for influenza vaccine under development at Emory, Georgia Tech with NIH Grantsinfluenza vaccine delivered through painless microneedles in patches on the skin could soon be an alternative to delivery through hypodermic needles, according to researchers at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology. With new grants from the National Institutes of Health in the amount of approximately $ 11,000 over five years, researchers want two institutions, two institutions, a new vaccine product with the microscopic needles. – A vaccine would be administered by a plaster a number of advantages, including less discomfort to the recipients, lower cost and reduced production time have, Richard Compans, professor of microbiology and immunology, says Emory School of Medicine.

Prausnitz and his colleagues have been working since the mid-1990s to microneedle technology for painless drugs and vaccines delivery of through the skin to develop. Much smaller than conventional hypodermic needles, the microneedles in the arrays from titanium, stainless steel or various polymers – including those that can dissolve into the skin, carrying vaccine with them. The Georgia Tech team manufacturing processes manufacturing processes for microneedle patches and tested the ability of the needles to proteins, vaccines, nanoparticles, and small and large molecules to deliver through the skin. – We expect microneedles to be less painful than conventional hypodermic needles because they are too small to significantly stimulate nerve endings are, says Dr.UNICEF replyUNICEF has closely with the government and is delivered tarp sheet, jerry cans, water purification tablets, ORS packets, mosquito nets and chlorinated lime to more than 8,000 displaced families in Uttar Pradesh. UNICEF is his deliveries into ten high risk district on assist 10,000 families prepositioned.
