What difference can this drug delivery technology bring to the healthcare sector?
Linguet offers multiple benefits to patients, governments and the healthcare sector. The technology allows drugs in the tablet form to be delivered straight into the blood stream via the buccal mucosa or through sublingual method, thus, accelerating the onset of action, and reducing the side effects of absorption in the stomach.
Patients can expect quicker onset of desired therapeutic activity, while being on low drug doses. The delivery method is painless, which improves patient convenience and compliance, and reduces the incidence of over dosing. In addition, oral medicine is the largest segment of pharmaceuticals yet there are few solutions for the dysphagia (swallowing problems) in the market. Linguet tablets provide a solution to this by being absorbed through the lining of the mouth.
