Studies Demonstrate Potential Benefits of Intradermal Injection

In a <a href="~/link.aspx?_id=55848B08EC624869ACA502BC24D71751&amp;_z=z">previous blog post</a>, we discussed various devices and solutions used to overcome the challenges associated with Intradermal (ID) injections. These challenges are mainly associated with the Mantoux Technique, a manual ID injection using a needle and syringe. Lacking the skill needed for this technique creates a risk of injecting the product too deep or not sufficiently deep and rendering the dose either less or potentially ineffective. Previous posts also touched on some of the potential benefits associated with ID delivery when compared to the more familiar Subcutaneous or Intramuscular type injections. Two of the benefits we look at closer in this post are dose sparing and improved immune response. Additionally, we will see how these two benefits can be related. <br />
