Microscopic STAR particles offer treatment options for skin diseases

Skin diseases affect half of the world’s population, but many treatments are not effective, require frequent injections, or cause significant side effects. A new skin therapy could help address those issues. Using a skin cream infused with microscopic STAR particles and a therapeutic drug, the technique could facilitate better treatment of skin diseases including psoriasis, warts, and certain types of skin cancer. The particle-infused cream, from the same research team that has developed microneedle patches for drug delivery, has been tested on skin tumors in mice.
