Many of the world’s most effective and widely-used medicines are acidic and, when taken as tablets, cause damage to the lining of the stomach. In the case of aspirin, the most-prescribed drug in the world, the stomach side-effects may help explain recent US research showing that 1 in 4 people with cardiovascular disease are no longer taking aspirin. Solvotrin has invented a number of technologies which solve this problem. The basis of the technology is a carrier group that promotes hydrolysis along the ideal route, leading to aspirin liberation in human blood and in response to enzymes found in the intestinal wall. Solvotrin will target the €15 billion anti-platelet market segment for its two lead compounds.
