Microneedle Patch Delivers Antibiotics Locally in the Skin

Microneedle Patch Delivers Antibiotics Locally in the Skin

MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) skin infections are potentially lethal, especially in patients with compromised immune systems. Vancomycin is one of the main treatments and is given as an intravenous injection. The reason the antibiotic is not given locally is because of its low ability to penetrate the skin. It is not given orally either because of poor absorption through the gut.

Insulin delivery in 2021

Insulin delivery in 2021

Insulin delivery is a critical part of diabetes management, particularly for Type 1 diabetics. Delivery of insulin has been achieved by a number of competing approaches over the last few decades, including direct injection, insulin pens and insulin pumps. This articles looks at the ecosystem as it exists today, including the latest developments around trends such as patch pumps and closed-loop delivery within this evolving commercial landscape.
