New ibuprofen patch delivers drug without risks posed by oral dose
from Medical News Today
Ibuprofen is used by many people to relieve pain, lessen swelling and to reduce fever. Though there are many worrying side effects linked to overuse of the drug, a new ibuprofen patch has been developed that can deliver the drug at a consistent dose rate without the side effects linked to the oral form. The patch was developed by researchers at the University of Warwick in the U.K., led by research chemist Prof. David Haddleton. Though there are commercial patches on the market designed to soothe pain, this is the first patch that delivers ibuprofen through the skin.
