Abstract: Microneedles (MNs) are a form of transdermal drug delivery capable of delivering an antigen or vaccine in a painless fashion. Silk is a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer with good mechanical strength, offering a suitable material for the fabrication of MNs. The current fabrication of silk MNs is achieved through either clean-room based lithography or machine shop-based micromachini... read more
