Advances in transdermal (needle-free) drug delivery

It's exciting to see what the researchers at MIT are discovering in the area of transdermal (needle-free) drug delivery. Wouldn't it be great if we never had to rely on needles to deliver medications?

Using ultrasound waves, MIT engineers have found a way to enhance the permeability of the skin to drugs, making transdermal drug delivery more efficient. This technology could pave the way for noninvasive drug delivery or needle-free vaccinations, according to the researchers.
