Transfersome is a proprietary drug delivery technology, an artificial vesicle designed to exhibit the characteristics of a cell vesicle suitable for controlled and potentially targeted drug delivery. Some evidence has shown efficacy for its use for drug delivery without causing skin irritation,[1] potentially being used to treat skin cancer.[2] Transfersome is made by the German company IDEA AG.
