Diclofenac (DF) was first synthesized in the 1960's and is currently available as ophthalmic, oral, parenteral, rectal and skin preparations. This review focuses on the administration of DF to the skin. As a member of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) group of drugs the primary indications of DF are for the management of inflammation and pain but it is also used to treat actinic keratosis. The specific aims of this paper are to (i) Provide an overview of the pharmacokinetics and metabolism of DF following oral and topical administration (ii) Examine critically the various formulation approaches which have been investigated to enhance dermal delivery of DF (iii) Identify new formulation strategies for enhanced DF skin penetration.
