Influenza vaccination by microneedle patch: results from a phase 1 clinical trial
Could influenza vaccination by microneedle patch improve vaccine efficacy and uptake? Rouphael and Prausnitz will present findings from a translational study culminating in a phase 1 clinical trial to show how microneedle patch vaccination can increase vaccine immunogenicity and enable increased access to influenza vaccination, in part through self-administration of the vaccine.
