ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of microstructured transdermal systems (MTS) technology with the emphasis on solid-coated MTS for drug and vaccine delivery. MTS is particularly well suited to vaccine delivery because it provides a pain-free alternative to injection. In addition, various configurations of the MTS technology have been described.
