Social Benefits

The ability of ASFD particles to reach only their targeted location will help minimize side effects of drugs. This will allow drugs that have been shelved because of undesirable side effects to be brought back into production, eliminating the need and cost of creating entirely new drugs to treat the same aliment. Another benefit of the ASFD process is the ability to deliver protein based drugs in new, novel self-administration modalities, such as inhalation and self-reconstituted micro injectors. Eliminating the inconvenience and expense of requiring healthcare worker administration of drugs will have a positive effect on patient therapeutic compliance. The global benefit of ASFD is that it extends the shelve-lives of drugs, enhances their mass distribution and allows drugs to be self-administered. This will lead to successful mass-immunization campaigns and help minimize large-scale effects of pandemics or bio-terror threats.
