Development of Revolutionary Method of Drug Injection by FujiFilm
This got to be the most painless way of injecting drug into patient body. This new revolutionary method of injecting drug into body was developed Fujifilm by simply attaching micro-needle array sheet onto the skin. The micro-array sheet is a sheet arrayed with projections of 100-2000 micrometers. When it is placed on the skin surface, the drug is injected into the skin from the projections and delivered into the body, without any pain like needle injection. The projections of the developed micro-needle array are made of polysaccharides that are known to be used for injectable drugs.
The micro-needle array is a dissolving type with projections dissolved into the skin within minutes and drug is delivered into the body. Currently the new product is being tested on animals with an aim to commercialize the product by latter half of the next year.
