Engineered To Endure
Transdermal drug delivery systems can be a safe, effective, and elegant delivery system for a variety of drugs and doses in many therapeutic areas. Transdermal Drug Delivery systems provide several benefits including avoidance of first-pass hepatic metabolism. By going directly into the bloodstream, lower doses are required resulting in a more efficient mode of delivery.
