Transdermal therapeutic systems are patches that can be applied to the suitable part of the body effectively and discreetly. The active substance enters the bloodstream transdermally, i.e. through the skin.
Diverse technologies for wide-ranging applications
A wide range of TTS technologies from LTS make it easy to ensure the ideal dose for any active substance. The drug molecule should not exceed a certain size (approx. 500 g/mol) so that it can penetrate the skin effectively. To date, there are 20 active substances known to fulfil this requirement. LTS processes twelve of these for its various partners in the pharmaceuticals industry. Experts have predicted that there are at least 30 other active substances that could be suited to transdermal delivery.
