Microneedle Patch: A New Transdermal Drug Delivery System
MNP can serve as a novel platform for transdermal drug delivery (TDD). MNP is different from the conventional TDD i.e., there are hundreds of microneedles on the patch that can penetrate the skin to remove the resistance of the stratum corneum. Drugs can be delivered to the epidermis, dermis later for fast drugs diffusion into the vain. On the other hand, microneedles are short enough not to touch the nerve system. So the administration of MNP will not cause any painful feelings.
