Topical fluorouracil improves actinic keratoses and photoaging
Topical application of the chemotherapy medication fluorouracil appears to reduce potentially precancerous skin patches and improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.

Electronic device for quick glucose test to aid diabetics
A skin patch could one day provide a less-invasive alternative for diabetics who need to take regular samples of their own blood to keep glucose levels in check. The common method of drawing blood from fingertips and using glucose testing strips and metres can be painful, inconvenient and time-consuming.

Travelers' diarrhea vaccine skin patch for travelers
Researchers at The University of Texas School of Public Health have found that patients given a travelers' diarrhea vaccine were significantly less likely to suffer from clinically significant diarrhea than those who received placebo, according to a study published in this week's edition of The Lancet.

Oral HRT doubles risk of blood clots
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) given in skin patches may cause fewer blood clots than HRT given orally, revealed by researchers in British Medical Journal, UK. Women who take the oral form of HRT more than double their risk of developing a blood clot.

Ortho Evra contraceptive transdermal birth control patch label update
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved additional changes to the Ortho Evra Contraceptive Transdermal (Skin) Patch label to include the results of a new epidemiology study that found that users of the birth control patch were at higher risk of developing serious blood clots, also known as venous thromboembolism (VTE), than women using birth control pills. VTE can lead to pulmonary embolism.

Safety warning on fentanyl skin patch by US FDA
The US Food and Drug Administration issued its second safety warning about the fentanyl transdermal system, an adhesive patch that delivers a potent pain medicine through the skin. In July 2005, the agency issued a similar warning to the public and to health care providers, saying that the directions on the product label and on the patient package insert should be followed exactly in order to avoid overdose.
