Existing pharmaceuticals in a new way

NorInvent's drug delivery platform brings a revolutionizing new method for the administration of pharmaceuticals. A membrane loaded with the drug (such as ibuprofen or nicotine) and is placed under the upper lip. The saliva then releases the drug, which enters the bloodstream via the oral mucosa.
