Event Description

This event already occurred.  Enjoy the recording!

Prometheon Pharma launched it's #NoPricks campaign in order to help bring it's needle-free insulin delivery patch to market.  Here's their mission statement:

At Prometheon, we foresee persons with diabetes no longer needing to inject themselves daily with insulin.  We envision vaccines that will not spoil in hot climates and can be administered easily, painlessly, and inexpensively to impoverished children in developing countries.  We imagine once-weekly drug patches for mental health disorders and chronic diseases that maximize adherence to prescribed therapy by greatly simplifying drug regimens.  We dream of fields and streams absent of medical waste because biodegradable products and manufacturing processes are created to protect the fragile ecosystems on our planet.  Above all, we believe advances in drug delivery and new drug discovery can be made accessible to everyone in the world.  At Prometheon, we are devoted to our mission and promise to advance global health equity and improve human existence through the pursuit and translation of scientific discovery.

Khurt, I hope you are able to join and ask those questions!  I thought the same things when I first heard about them.

I assume this would be for basal insulin. Bolus -- fast acting -- insulin would likely still require a needle/pump. There is also the question of efficacy and accuracy of dosing given the variation in skin between individuals.

I recently spoke with a woman who said her son was using the insulin patch in Canada. I was dumbfounded and asked her repeatedly to elaborate. Is it in common use in Canada? Looking forward to the info.
