3 Transdermal Drug Delivery System
TDDS: A sophisticated complex drug delivery system difficult to formulate. It requires specialized manufacturing process/equipment. Formulated to meet specific biopharmaceutical and functional characteristics. The materials of construction, configuration and combination of the drug with the proper cosolvent, excipient, penetration enhancer, and membrane are carefully selected and matched to optimize adhesive properties and drug delivery requirements. Formulated to deliver the drug at optimized rate into the systemic circulation should adhere to the skin for the expected duration should not cause any skin irritation and/or sensitization
