Entrinsic Health Solutions Announces Data from Poster Presentation at ACSM Annual Meeting
USAREIM to present clinical data on rehydration kinectics with enterade
NORWOOD, Mass., June 01, 2016 – Entrinsic Health Solutions, Inc., an innovative health sciences company dedicated to the development and commercialization of amino acid based medical foods to address critical digestive health, nutrition and hydration related health issues, today announced the release of clinical data from a study conducted in partnership with the US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USAREIM), presented at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) annual meeting. ACSM is being held in Boston May 31 – June 4, 2016.
The poster, entitled, “Preliminary Characterization of Enterade® Rehydration Kinetics Following Intra- and Extracellular Dehydration,” was presented today by Dr. Samuel N. Cheuvront, R.D., Ph.D., from USAREIM. The purpose of the study was to provide characterization of the rehydration and retention profile of Entrinsic Health Solution’s proprietary amino acid based beverage, following two distinct types of dehydration: intracellular dehydration (ID) and extracellular dehydration (ED). A total of 13 subjects have thus far completed the study and results showed that volunteers were rehydrated to within ~1% of euhydrated baseline body weight and maintained hydration after 4.5 hours in both ID and ED.
“This trial demonstrates Entrinsic Health’s A2CT platform, and its rehydration and fluid retention benefits. The balance of the study will show a clear distinction between traditional glucose based hydration mechanisms and our amino acid based formulations. We are excited to continue building upon our database of support for our patented mechanism of action,” said Stephen J Gatto, Chairman & CEO of Entrinsic Health Solutions. “The data presented in this poster furthers our understanding of intracellular and extracellular rehydration and its importance in providing total body rehydration.”
The poster is available in the News & Media section of the Entrinsic Health Solutions website at www.entrinsichealth.com.
About Entrinsic Health Solutions
Entrinsic Health Solutions, Inc., is an innovative health sciences company dedicated to the development and commercialization of amino acid based medical foods to address critical digestive health, nutrition and hydration related health issues. The Company’s proprietary Amino Acid Coupled Transport (A2CT) Technology platform leverages gold-standard science and game-changing amino acid technology to address critical digestive- and hydration-related health issues. A2CT technology uses select amino acids to facilitate active transport of electrolytes throughout the body, which delivers rapid hydration, decreased gut permeability and improved nutrient absorption, supporting long-term digestive health. The Company’s first commercial product, enterade®, is a first-in-class amino acid based medical food beverage that hydrates, rebuilds, and protects the gut lining and helps manage side effects from cancer treatments as well as occasional diarrhea, cramping, dehydration, nausea and malnutrition. The Company is involved in several on-going clinical trials designed to test the efficacy of the A₂CT Technology for oncology and digestive health applications.
