the future is here
our ‘patient first’ approach
Imagine a world in which diabetes patients wouldn’t need to inject their insulin anymore but could get their insulin needs by simply wearing a patch from time to time. Imagine a world in which oral medication wouldn’t need to pass the entire gastrointestinal tract, thereby significantly reducing side-effects in general. Imagine a world in which there wouldn’t be any confusion about whether a loved one with Alzheimer’s decease has taken their medicine, but we could simply check to see if they are wearing their patch. Imagine… The possibilities are endless and the Biotts team and the MTC-Y™ technology could make all a reality!
Patients prefer oral routes of administration compared to subcutaneous injections because it is easier and pain-free. But the oral route of administration has its limits too – often patients have to remember to take pills several times a day, a certain amount of time before or after meals. Not to mention side effects from digestive systems.
The biotts mtc-y™ technology is offering a viable drug delivery alternative to pills and needles, with the following benefits:
- life without invasive injections,
- sustained and controlled release of the active ingredient over an extended period of up one week,
- improved bioavailability compared to many oral dosage forms,
- comfortable therapy in a patch or ointment,
- increased efficiency of the therapy,
- improved patient adherence,
- reduced digestive complaints and side-effects.
