    Digital therapeutics (DTx) is a new subsection of digital health that is primarily driven by software and will be of great interest to clinical pharmacologists. In this article, an overview of DTx, including definition, position in the landscape of therapeutics, product categories, benefits, and challenges, is provided. Discussions from the point of view of clinical pharmacology are presented, as DTx should have exposure-response relationships. The principles of clinical pharmacology can be applied to DTx as they are comparable to pharmacotherapy. Clinical pharmacology has great potential in the development, application, and regulation of DTx.
