Microneedles find widespread use; researchers must perfect the techniques for optimally inserting them into the skin, and complete the integration of microneedles into a full diagnostic, monitoring or drug delivery system. Microneedles are expected to be less painful than conventional hypodermic needles because they are too small to significantly s...

Drug delivery to the lungs by inhalation has attracted tremendous scientific and biomedical interest in recent years. This trend accompanies a rise in respiratory illnesses, dramatized by an increase in asthma population in the United States of 46% between 1982 and 1993 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA).

... The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of skin pretreatment with a microneedle roller on the local and transdermal delivery of DCF from a commercially available gel (Voltaren Õ ) and from a commercially available iontophoretic patch filled with a DCF solution. Microneedle rollers were introduced on the market mainly for use in cosmetics 12 . Indeed, the micro-damage to the skin produced by the microneedle rollers can possibly increase collagen production during the physiological repair process and thus improves the overall appearance of the skin. ...
