Global Topical Drug Market

Drugs that are applied to a local area on the body are known as topical drugs. Most often topical drugs are applied to body surfaces such as skin or mucus membrane to treat ailments through a various range of classes such as creams, lotion, foams, gel, ointments etc. Topical medications have a local effect that means the effect of the drug will be only in the area where the drug has been applied; however, some topical medications can also have a systemic effect. New technological developments by companies are fueling the growth of the market. For Instance, in February 2018, Kaken and Valeant pharmaceuticals entered into an exclusive license agreement to develop and commercialize products containing an investigational compound, KP-470, which is a new chemical entity being studied for the topical treatment of psoriasis.
