Addressing patient needs through nutritional therapy
Medical Nutrition encompasses specialised products for nutritional therapies including:
- Oral Nutritional Supplements
- Enteral Nutrition (tube feeding via the nose or the gastrointestinal tract)
- Parenteral Nutrition (intravenous feeding)
The goal is to help patients of all ages to address nutritional insufficiencies arising from a disease, disorder or condition, when they are unable to meet their requirements via normal foods.
Depending on the situation they may be required for short or long term or even for life and may be administered in diverse healthcare settings or at home.
Unlocking new solutions addressing patient needs
Specialty carbohydrates, including Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO), have already been indicated to varying degrees to be helpful with conditions such as obesity, insulin resistance, immune diseases, adverse reactions to food, nutrient assimilation deficiencies, etc.
Yet, the availability of such ingredients in sufficient quantities for medical nutrition applications has been a considerable hurdle for the industry and scientific community to harness their potential.
Inbiose is looking forward to working with various partners in unlocking the potential of novel specialty carbohydrates or derivatives.
