TitleNanowire-Coated Planar Microdevices For Transmucosal Drug Delivery
OwnerUniversity of California

The device enhances oral drug delivery because of the following: (1) it binds to the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, thereby providing proximal drug release and prolonged drug exposure, addressing issues of solubility; (2) the planar shape of these devices coupled with their adhesive properties will allow for unidirectional drug release toward epithelial tissue, addressing issues of drug permeation; (3) the drug loaded onto the devices will be released in a sustained manner, decreasing exposure to harsh conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, thereby reducing drug degradation.

Looking for Partners


To develop & commercialize the technology as an oral drug delivery system.
