Gene delivery to human skin using microneedle arrays

0044 English OPEN
Coulman, Sion Andrew;
  • Subject: RS

Cutaneous delivery of macromolecules is significantly impeded by the inherent barrier properties of the stratum corneum (SC). Within the last decade sophisticated engineering techniques have enabled the manufacture of microneedle arrays. These are innovative devices con... View more
