Our Technology

transdermal patchesWith a specialized expertise in transdermal technology and drug delivery, Teikoku Pharma has pioneered the creation of various innovative and proprietary transdermal drug delivery systems: including our Hydrohesive® and Matrix patch technologies.

Our patch technology opens new doors for the delivery of new and existing molecules and can offer advantages over oral or parenteral medication delivery by circumventing “first-pass” inactivation by the liver, reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal irritation, providing for steady absorption of medication over long periods of time, reducing the frequency of dosing, which may improve adherence, and lowering the frequency of adverse effects through the avoidance of high serum drug peaks.

Aside from our patch technology, Teikoku also utilizes injectable and external preparations, e.g. gel, ointment and creams to deliver drugs.
