Developing Custom Adhesive Systems for Transdermal Drug Delivery Products

Pharmaceutical companies in search of unique pressure-sensitive adhesive systems for their transdermal drug delivery (TDD) products are turning to specialty adhesives manufacturers to carry out research and development, testing, materials qualification, manufacturing, quality and other product development tasks. Trends suggest that adhesives manufacturers are forming partnerships with pharmaceutical companies as part of the product development process that ultimately includes manufacturing adhesive products to the relevant pharmaceutical current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). This article also discusses the technological advances that are occurring in terms of types of transdermal patch, adhesive properties and specialised components in transdermal drug delivery systems (TDDS).

Transdermal Drug Delivery Systems

The use of TDDS continues to gain market acceptance as a selected method of drug administration. The success of products that deliver materials such as nicotine for smoking cessation, nitroglycerin for angina, oestradiol and testosterone for hormone replacement therapy, and oestrogen and progesterone for birth control has ensured that the TDDS market is a strong industry segment with many more drug actives being formulated for transdermal delivery methods.

PhlexEarchive: The Right Solution for Electronic Archiving of TMF Content

Phlexglobal Ltd

Many sponsor organizations have already recognized the value of moving from paper to electronic Trial Master Files (eTMFs). But few sponsors have taken a more holistic approach to the TMF lifecycle and looked at the entire process from study start-up through archiving of the TMF in electronic format, also known as e-archiving. The recurring value of managing, tracking, maintaining and accessing electronic files should not stop at the point of archiving. All of the challenges of managing an active paper TMF carry through to a paper archive. All of the benefits of an electronic TMF also carry through to the electronic archive. As companies look to move their compliance assets to secure, long-term storage, it is important to consider ongoing compliance requirements, security, accessibility, efficiency and costs of archiving TMF content in a digital format.
