olecules such as insulin. A prototype device containing insulin significantly reduced glucose levels in preclinical studies of diabetic rats, they say. (Mark R.

  • Cutting-edge technology: Macroflux® is a small array of microscopic blades that can be attached to an electronic skin patch. The microblades cut through the skin's outer dead surface, forming tiny slits that allow medicine to be delivered locally or systemically without drawing blood and without pain. In turn, the microslits allow large molecules to enter the skin and travel to their target. This truly "cutting-edge" device succeeded in delivering therapeutic doses of insulin and lowering levels of glucose in a small group of non-diabetic volunteers. (Peter E. Daddona, Ph.D., ALZA Corporation, Mountain View, Calif.; MEDI 179, Monday, March 27, 4:10 p.m., Moscone Center, Rooms 130/131. See page 132 in the final program.)
