Composite polymer microneedles encapsulating drug-loaded, controlled-release poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) matrices in a rapidly soluble poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) matrix provide rapid transcutaneous implantation of long-lived depots for sustained delivery of vaccines and drug cargos in vivo. Microneedle delivery of a rationally designed subunit vaccine formulation enhances adaptive immunity relative to traditional needle-based administration.
