Rajoli RKR, Flexner C, Chiong J, Owen A, Donnelly RF, Larraneta E, Siccardi M. Modelling the intradermal delivery of microneedle array patches for long-acting antiretrovirals using PBPK. Eur J Pharm Biopharm. 2019 Nov;144:101-109. doi: 10.1016/j.ejpb.2019.09.011. Epub 2019 Sep 13. PMID: 31525446; PMCID: PMC6917207.
Existing HIV therapy using oral antiretrovirals (ARVs) can result in pill fatigue and sub-optimal adherence. Microneedle array patches (MAPs) offer non-invasive, blood-free and painless drug delivery, and may improve patient adherence.
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate the development of new and innovative sustained/extended release (SER) drug delivery systems (DDS) that can achieve extended durations (months to years) and provide systemic protection from all routes of HIV infection/transmission in at-risk individuals.
Application Deadline: December 4, 2019, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization
