  • Publication number: 20210315990
    Abstract: Methods and devices are provided for treating a food allergy in a subject in need thereof. The method entails delivering an effective amount of an allergen associated with the food allergy into the subject's cutis skin layer. Delivering the allergen is carried out by inserting one or more allergen-coated solid microneedles into the subject's skin. The one or more solid microneedles each has a base, shaft and tip, and when inserted in the subject, do not extend beyond the cutis. The allergen is allowed to dissociate from the one or more microneedles while inserted in the subject's cutis. Once the allergen disassociates, the one or more microneedles is removed from the subject's skin.

  • Publication number: 20200289644
    Abstract: The present invention includes composition and methods for composition for the oral delivery of a therapeutic agent that reduces, desensitizes, or prevents food, respiratory and other allergies. First pollen is cleaned to remove naturally-occurring allergic plant proteins to form a cleaned pollen and a therapeutically effective amount of an allergen is introduced into the cleaned pollen. The allergen-loaded cleaned pollen is delivered to a subject in need of therapy.

  • Publication number: 20180092852
    Abstract: The present invention includes methods of making a hollow exine shell from pollen grains comprising the steps of: providing a plant pollen or spore; extracting organic matter from the plant pollen or spore with an organic solvent; after the organic extraction treating the plant pollen or spore with an acid solution; after the acid treatment treating the plant pollen or spore with an alkali solution; and isolating the plant pollen or spore, wherein the pollen or spore have open apertures on pollens with visible apertures that open to the interior hollow cavity, wherein the same apertures are closed in naturally occurring pollens.

  • Patent number: 9364426
    Abstract: Coated microneedle devices and methods of making such devices are provided. In one aspect, a method for coating includes providing a microstructure having at least one surface in need of coating; and applying a coating liquid, which includes at least one drug, to the at least one surface of the microstructure, wherein the surface energy of the coating liquid is less than the surface energy of the surface of the microstructure. The coating liquid may include a viscosity enhancer and surfactant. Microneedles having heterogeneous coatings, pockets, or both are also provided.
