We would like to share a report on intradermal delivery of vaccines that was commissioned by PATH's Disposable Jet Injector Project and Project Optimize (a collaborative project between WHO and PATH). The report was authored by Julian Hickling and Rebecca Jones from Working in Tandem Ltd.
The purpose of the report is three-fold: 1) To summarize the clinical evidence supporting the intradermal route for vaccine administration and the devices being developed for this purpose; 2) to determine whether intradermal delivery broadly holds promise for vaccine applications for low- and middle-income countries in the future; and 3) to begin to prioritize vaccine targets and device strategies that best fit the public health needs in these countries and likely merit further investigation. We hope the document is useful to others and welcome comments from Technet members.
All the best,
Debbie Kristensen, Group Leader Vaccine Technologies, PATH and Darin Zehrung, Technical Officer, PATH
