There are only a limited number of existing polymers that have the right characteristics to be used for transdermal patches - that will stick to the skin and not leave residues when being easily removed. Furthermore, there are also only a limited number of drugs that will dissolve into these existing polymers.
TEPI Patch’s unique adhesive is strong enough that the patch will not lose adhesion during a day's use, ensuring full delivery of the drug, while also being easy to remove when desired with minimum residue. TEPI Patch also offers strong adhesion even at high drug loadings and has the flexibility to adhere well to joints and curved surfaces.
The breadth of chemical types compatible with TEPI Patch makes it potentially suitable for development of patches for dugs previously unsuited for this type of delivery and offers the potential for faster-released drugs and higher-dose products.
