"The nasal delivery of vaccines has emerged as an attractive alternative to injection. Nasal vaccination has the advantage that it elicits both local and systemic immune responses. This accreditation is good news for vaccine developing companies looking for a specialized CRO for support in the nasal drug delivery of vaccines," Julie D. Suman, Ph.D.
