Transdermal (and related transmucosal) drug delivery is a well-established accepted route of administration for therapeutically beneficial medicines. There is no potential limit for the therapeutic area for development of transdermal systems. Some therapeutic areas stand out, including sex hormones and pain management, due to the successful combination of the individual drug molecules and available product technologies. The potential benefits that may be achieved using transdermal delivery include continuous, controlled release and absorption of medication into the body, avoiding presystemic metabolism that may occur following oral dosing, including both intestinal and hepatic first-pass metabolism, improving patient compliance by offering more convenient dosing regimens , such as once or twice weekly dosing, and the ability to quickly discontinue treatment by removal of the system.
