EPIMMUN patch™

It combines the EPIMMUN™ epidermal immunization via lasermicroporation with the existing transdermal patches technology.

Today the transdermal patches are only available for drugs with small molecules (<500Da). With the P.L.E.A.S.E.® technology the skin is pretreated with lasermicroporation and this makes it possible to deliver big molecules. The EPIMMUN patch™ creates a lot of great benefits for the huge vaccine market in a wide range of diseases.


  • Infectious diseases

  • Allergy

  • Cancer

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Alzheimer
