Abstract

See full text

A transdermal drug delivery system useful for the controlled, for example, zero order, release of one or more drugs to a selected skin area of a user, which system comprises a reservoir containing a transdermal delivery composition. The reservoir contains a composition which comprises a base material, which is a solid but which melts or liquefies upon contact with the skin of a user and selected to occlude the skin of the user to force hydration of the stratum corneum with water from the lower layers of the epidermis of the user and a plurality of solid microparticles, generally uniformly dispersed and suspended in the base material, the microparticles containing an effective, therapeutic amount of the drug for transdermal delivery, such as the contraceptive steroid. In use, the base material forms a thermodynamically stable thin film layer in intimate contact with the skin while the drug is released from the microparticles into the base material and transdermally into the user through the thin liquid film of the base material.
