Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR ADMINISTRATING SUBSTANCES INTO A BODY
(FR) APPAREIL POUR L'ADMINISTRATION DE SUBSTANCES À UN ORGANISME
Abstract:
(EN) There are a number of vaccines which are known to only produce an immune response if presented to cells in the Keratinocyte layer under the surface of the skin. At present this has been achieved by applying the vaccine to a surface of the skin and penetrating the applied area with an array of needles usually forming part of an adapted 'gun' applicator. The invention offers an improvement to this method using a delivery device in which the vaccine is stored in a container having a collapsible cover (2). To administer the vaccine the device is placed onto the skin of a patient and with the pressure from an administrator's hand, the container is collapsed causing an array of spikes (1) within the delivery device to pierce the skin and allow the drug to be administered.
(FR) L'invention concerne des vaccins dont on sait qu'ils ne produisent de réponse immunitaire que s'ils sont présentés aux cellules de la couche de kératinocytes sous la surface de la peau. Plus particulièrement, l'invention permet d'appliquer le vaccin à une surface cutanée et de le faire pénétrer dans la zone d'application par l'intermédiaire d'un ensemble d'aiguilles constituant généralement une partie d'un applicateur à pistolet. L'invention propose une amélioration de ce procédé en utilisant un dispositif d'administration dans lequel le vaccin est stocké dans un récipient doté d’un couvercle pouvant s’affaisser (2). En vue de l'administration du vaccin, le dispositif est placé sur la peau du patient et par le biais de la pression exercée par la main de l'opérateur, le récipient s'affaisse, permettant à un ensemble de pointes (1) à l'intérieur du dispositif d'administration de percer la peau et d'administrer ainsi le vaccin.
