Abstract

We developed hydrolytic microneedles as a transdermal drug delivery system to overcome the shortcomings of existing microneedle-systems: long-term stay of broken needles in the skin and high cost for safe disposal of used needles. The present microneedles spontaneously dissolve by hydrolysis in human skin as well as in the (boiled) water. We verified their basic utility through experiments.
