Generex Biotechnology Corp., Toronto, has presented a research abstract by Robert Humphreys, the chief scientific officer of its Antigen Express immunomedicines subsidiary, at the Foundation Merieux Conference, "Innate and Adaptive Immunity after Transcutaneous or Mucosal Vaccination." Pankaj Modi, the inventor of the technology at Generex, developed a novel method for aerosolized delivery of proteins and peptides through the buccal mucosa by a RapidMist device using a pressurized fluorocarbon. The administered insulin is absorbed rapidly and provides a therapeutic plasma level within 20 minutes of application.
