Porous MicroNeedle Arrays for controlled dermal drug delivery

MyLife Technologies developed nanoporous MicroNeedle Arrays (npMNA) for painfree drug delivery via the skin. The nanopores of the MNAs allow for drug storage, such as peptides, small molecules and vaccines. The npMNA devices are made of ceramic material and are combined into a dermal patch.
We completed animal studies with vaccines -including an influenza challenge study- and with an Alzheimer drug (sustained release over multiple days). In Q1 2019, our first-in-human studies with a peptide formulation as a showcase will commence.
The major USPs of npMNA devices are:
• sharp needles of nanoporous, ceramic material
• compatibility with patch technology
• controlled drug release profiles
