Entrinsic Health Announces Issuance of U.S Patent for Its Glucose-Free, Amino Acid Formulation for Maintaining Gastrointestinal Health
Boston, MA (June, 2015): Entrinsic Health Solutions announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent Number 8,993,522. The patent, which expires in 2032 covers the Company’s proprietary, glucose-free formulation of selected amino acids and minerals for use in maintaining gastrointestinal health and mitigating side effects from chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Enterade®, Entrinsic Health’s flagship commercial product and the first rehydration solution based on this new technology, can be used to reduce gastrointestinal side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Enterade® may also reduce the dehydration and gastrointestinal symptoms associated with infectious diarrhea. Additional patent applications are pending globally.
Entrinsic Health Solutions is an innovative health sciences company that is working to address challenging global healthcare imperatives, including dehydration, side effects of anti-cancer therapy, diarrheal diseases, malnutrition and malabsorption. The company’s seminal research, led by physicians at the University of Florida, has culminated in the development and commercialization of the proprietary, amino acid-based HydroActive Technology™ platform. HydroActive Technology™ is the foundation of enterade®.
“Studies have proven that conventional, glucose-based rehydration solutions do nothing to address the underlying causes of diarrhea and can in most cases exacerbate diarrhea,” said Stephen J. Gatto, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our groundbreaking, amino acid-based product not only provides rapid, whole body rehydration – it also reduces gut leakiness and increases the surface area for absorption in the small intestine.”
“Our HydroActive Technology represents a sea change in the treatment of dehydration, diarrhea, and may lead to novel therapies for a variety of gastrointestinal disorders. We believe the technology platform and ingredient blends developed by Entrinsic Health Systems have the ability to create a seismic shift in treatment strategies for dehydration and diarrheal disorders,” said Gatto.
