Improving patient health

Through value-added medicines

Longer life

The world is on the brink of a demographic milestone. The number of people aged 65 or older is projected to grow to nearly 1.5 billion by 2050. Increasing life expectancies have given rise to dramatic growth in chronic disease and global medication use. In developed countries, approximately one in four adults have at least two chronic conditions, and while ageing this is increasing to three or more diseases for half of the population. These sobering trends have vital public health implications.

Solutions within reach

Scientific research shows the beneficial impact of high-dose vitamin intake, levels above and beyond nutritional requirements on a variety of chronic illnesses such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, cancer, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

By reformulating existing therapies or developing new vitamin-drug product combinations, unmet patient needs can be addressed via new product formulations, resulting in optimized safety and improved efficacy of the medication. This ultimately leads to better patient care and quality of life.
