We designed and fabricated an array of sugar micro needles of the length ranging from 150 micro m to 2 mm for transdermic delivery of drugs. Micro needles were molded out of maltose mixed with pharmaceutical material, being expected bio-degradable in the human skin. To test basic tolerance to the healthy human skin, a clinical experiment was carried out for… CONTINUE READING
