The effectiveness of topicals lie in their ability to deliver
Benefits of Topical Drug Delivery
Most commonly, a topical drug delivery system is applied to the skin, where the medicine either treats only the area of application or is absorbed into the bloodstream through the dermis. Some treatment areas include the eyes, ears, nose, and the vaginal and rectal mucosa.
Topicals offer targeted delivery, reduced systemic side effects, and improved patient compliance, making them ideal for conditions requiring long-term treatment. The choice of formulation and excipients is pivotal in determining penetration, release, and overall effectiveness.
