  1. 1. A Fully Integrated Microneedle-based Transdermal Drug Delivery System

    Author : Niclas Roxhed; Göran Stemme; Mark G. Allen; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microneedle; Transdermal; Intradermal; Drug delivery; DRIE; MEMS; Microsystem; Medical technology; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Patch-based transdermal drug delivery offers a convenient way to administer drugs without the drawbacks of standard hypodermic injections relating to issues such as patient acceptability and injection safety. However, conventional transdermal drug delivery is limited to therapeutics where the drug can diffuse across the skin barrier. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Approaches to Treatment and Prevention of Diabetic Nephropathy

    Author : Lina Nordquist; Mats Sjöquist; Peter Bergsten; William J. Welch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physiology; Diabetes; Nephropathy; C-peptide; Microneedle; Renal; GFR; Oxygen Consumption; Reabsorption; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Several studies have reported beneficial effects of C-peptide supplementation in diabetic patients and animal models of insulinopenic diabetes. However, it is also established that good glycemic control is essential to minimize the risk of diabetes-induced complications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Flexible and Stretchable Biointerfacing for Healthcare Diagnostics

    Abstract : Interdisciplinary research between medicine and microsystem engineering creates new possibilities to improve the quality of life of patients or to further enhance the performance of already existing devices. In particular, microsystems show great potential for the realization of biosensors and sampling devices to monitor bioanalytes with minimal patient discomfort. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Microfluidic Devices Based on a Thermally Responsive PDMS Composite

    Author : Björn Samel; Göran Stemme; Jörg Kutter; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEMS; microsystem technology; micro total analysis system; lab-on-a-chip; microfluidics; composite actuator; expandable microspheres; PDMS; poly dimethylsiloxane; disposable; wafer bonding; adhesive bonding; PDMS bonding; adhesive PDMS bonding; selective PDMS bonding; microcontact printing; Electrical engineering; Elektroteknik;

    Abstract : The field of micro total analysis systems (μTAS) aims at developments toward miniaturized and fully integrated lab-on-a-chip systems for applications, such as drug screening, drug delivery, cellular assays, protein analysis, genomic analysis and handheld point-of-care diagnostics. Such systems offer to dramatically reduce liquid sample and reagent quantities, increase sensitivity as well as speed of analysis and facilitate portable systems via the integration of components such as pumps, valves, mixers, separation units, reactors and detectors.
