Nitto Denko is developing a medical device to administer medicine through skin by radio waves instead of a needle. The company has started joint research on the administration of insulin and antibody drug through skin with several pharmaceutical companies both in Japan and the U.S. The device makes about 200 tiny openings into the skin per square centimeter by adding heat on it using radio waves, and a sheet containing drug substances is stuck to these openings. A patient hardly feels pain and heat. Nitto Denko plans to put the device on the market toward 2020 as a device that a patient can use by himself at home.
