DUBLIN, Feb 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Vaccine Delivery Markets for Microneedle Devices" report to their offering.
Vaccines are recognized as one of the most significant healthcare developments in the last one hundred years. In spite of their role in improving quality-of-life and drastically reducing the level of morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases, the ability of healthcare and state institutions to maximize access to many millions of undeserved people has still not been realized. This is a complex picture that is characterized by significant regional and socioeconomic factors.
One major obstacle is cost, particularly for many underdeveloped countries. Microneedle technology, which has been successfully used to delivery therapeutic drugs, continues to be investigated as a vaccine delivery method. The relative simplicity and safety of microneedles makes them well-suited for use in mass immunization as well as for single patients. Numerous companies are currently involved in clinical development to identify the true potential of this technology.
