A needle-free shot of adrenaline
Anaphylactic shock is an extreme allergic reaction that needs to be treated immediately with a shot of epinephrine (adrenaline) to reverse the symptoms. Many people at risk of anaphylaxis carry an autoinjector – a combined syringe and concealed needle that injects a single dose of medication. This needle-based drug delivery device may soon be replaced by a needle-free alternative. Crossject’s ZENEO device permits needle-free injection of the drug in emergency situations. Under the EU-funded ZENEO project, the company plans to launch ZENEO® Adrenaline on the market by the end of 2021. It estimates a turnover of EUR 136 million and a profit of EUR 124 million by the fifth year of commercialisation.
