Scientists develop new way to deliver more drugs through the skin | Science Daily

Must Read

New research by scientists from Nanyang Technological University discovered applying “temporal pressure” to the skin of mice can create an alternative way to deliver drugs. The method used two magnets brought together to pinch and apply pressure to a fold of skin leading to short term changes in the skin barrier and form “micropores” underneath its surface. This allows drugs applied on the surface of the skin to diffuse through it more easily. This can pave the way towards painless delivery of drugs like insulin through skin and reducing skin damage to diabetic patients brought by needles and microneedle injections.
