PLxGuard Delivery System

Our PLxGuard Delivery System works by releasing active pharmaceutical ingredients into the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine immediately below the stomach, rather than in the stomach itself. We believe this improves the absorption of many drugs currently on the market or in development, and reduces acute gastrointestinal (GI) side effects — including erosions, ulcers, and bleeding — associated with aspirin and ibuprofen, and potentially other drugs.
