 1/14/15 - Investigators from University of Bath Release New Data on Drug Delivery Systems (Transdermal drug delivery: 30+years of war and still fighting!)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week Data detailed on Drugs and Therapies have been presented. According to news reporting from Bath, United Kingdom, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "By any measure, transdermal drug delivery (TDD) is a successful controlled release technology."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Bath, "Over the last 30+ years, a steady flux of transdermal products have received regulatory approval and reached the market. For the right compounds, TDD is an effective and preferred route of administration; for others, delivery across the skin makes no sense at all."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Currently, the 'rules' that govern (passive) TDD feasibility are clearly understood, and research activity is focused on novel approaches that strive to subvert skin's excellent barrier function, and broaden the range of active species amenable to percutaneous administration."
