Paper Title:
Design, Fabrication and Characterization of in-Plane Titanium Microneedles for Transdermal Drug Delivery
  Abstract

Transdermal drug delivery is an alternative way to transport drugs compared with oral route and hypodermic injection. The problem of oral route is the degradation of drugs in the gastrointestinal tract and their elimination through the liver. The hypodermic injection is problematic due to the pain and inconvenient for patients [1]. As a novel device of transdermal drug delivery, microneedles offer several advantages including the painless injection, the precise penetration depth under the skin and the long-term, continuous deliveries
