Features and Uniqueness

  • (2) The drug can be administered into the lymph node under ultrasound guidance.
  • (3) An international patent has been filed for the solvent of the administered drug.
Practical Application

1. Treatment and prophylactic therapy of affiliated lymph nodes in head and neck cancer, breast cancer, etc.
2. Pharmaceutical companies aiming to develop drugs by drug repositioning and generics
3. Medical device manufacturers aiming to develop a dosing system
