The purpose of this research was to examine the pharmacokinetics (PK) of drug uptake for microneedle-based intradermal (ID) delivery of several classes of protein drugs compared to standard subcutaneous (SC) administration. Systemic absorption kinetics of various proteins were analyzed following microneedle-based ID delivery and standard injection methods(More)
Metastasis is responsible for most deaths due to malignant melanoma. The clinical significance of micrometastases in the lymph is a hotly debated topic, but an improved understanding of the lymphatic spread of cancer remains important for improving cancer survival. Cellular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a newly emerging field of imaging research that(More)
The concept of microneedle drug delivery was described three decades ago; however, effective clinical demonstration has only occurred within the past 10-15 years. Substantial progress in microneedle design and fabrication including extensive in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo preclinical evaluation with various drugs, vaccines and other agents has transpired(More)
For many types of human cancer, the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) correlates with enhanced tumor-associated lymphatic vessel density, metastasis formation and poor prognosis. In experimental animals, VEGF-C produced by primary tumors can induce lymphangiogenesis within and/or at the periphery of the tumor, and promotes(More)
