Dissolving microneedle (DMN) are micron sized needle that delivers the drug with painless penetration, excellent therapeutic efficacy, and with relative safety. It has an innovative transdermal delivery system with attractive scientific and industrial interests as oligonucleotide delivery, vaccine delivery and insulin delivery. Dissolving microneedles have a variety of representative biomedical applications such as disease diagnosis and treatment, immunobiological administration, and cosmetology. It holds a great promise for biomedical applications. The wearable device based dissolving microneedle patches will be desirable to integrate disease diagnosis and treatment in future.
