Transdermal Drug Delivery (TDD) is a promising method for drug application that has major advantages over some of the most common routes of drug administration.
In most cases, oral drug delivery is the most common and convenient route of drug administration due to a high rate of patient compliance, cost-effectiveness, portability, ease of production and pre-determined dosage. However, there are limitations with oral drug delivery, such as incomplete delivery due to the unpredictability of gastrointestinal absorption.
Transdermal Drug Delivery on the other hand, involves the non-invasive delivery of medications through the skin surface and when applied can deliver the drug at a predetermined rate across the skin to achieve either a local or systemic effect.
