Novel delivery matrix, delivering enzymes and other active compounds to where they are needed most
This novel matrix is a hyaluronic acid-based, functionalized hydrogel. It is designed to work with Prolyl-endoproteases (PEPs) and endoproteases (EPs) and other compounds, to protect them from being broken down in the stomach and deliver them to where they are needed.
Most enzymes are deactivated in the stomach and do not reach the small intestine.
This novel matrix protects enzymes from the acidic conditions and the actions of digestive enzymes in the stomach, allowing them to reach their target delivery site – the small intestine – intact and active.
