Unlike several other disease segments, progress toward curative medicine for neurological and related central nervous system disorders has remained elusive. The result is a therapeutic segment that relies heavily on control of symptoms and palliative care. These trends include the growing incidence of neurological disorders associated with longevity and aging, and significant increases in the number of children diagnosed with autism. Because diseases of the central nervous system often result in compromised cognitive and/or motor skills that can increase the level of involuntary non-compliance with therapeutic protocols, transdermal delivery of drugs targeting CNS disorders is generally viewed as a method that can increase patient safety and improve outcomes. In addition to the handful of FDA-approved transdermal CNS products, more than a dozen companies are currently pursuing a range of APIs in transdermal delivery systems that target neurological and CNS conditions. While none of these development-stage candidates is curative, the benefits they can offer in terms of patient ease-of-use, product safety and overall quality-of-care are expected to result in reduced morbidity and more effective symptom management for afflicted patients
