About Sublingual Technology
The Company's drug formulation is designed to enhance the delivery of the medical products faster to the body than current oral formulations. This under-the-tongue design enables the vast majority of pharmaceutical drugs to be rapidly absorbed through the mucosal membrane (tissues of the mouth) quickly. This technology works well for drugs that need faster results and have major side effects associated with gastrointestinal and/or liver breakdown. It is scientifically accepted that the sublingual drug delivery route is the fastest and most efficient way of drug delivery after direct injection.
About Global Health Ventures
Global Health Ventures (OTCBB: GHLV) is a specialty pharmaceutical company with expertise in drug delivery and formulation. The Company has developed a new formulation for drug delivery via the sublingual (under the tongue) route. This unique method delivers drugs to the bloodstream quickly with less drug breakdown in the liver or gastrointestinal system, a process that can reduce side effects associated with the drugs. The Company's lead therapeutic product is a male sexual enhancement drug that is delivered via sublingual route and is called X-Excite. In human studies, X-Excite has been shown to reach the bloodstream faster than the oral route of delivery. The company has initiated the development of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Several NSAIDs have been demonstrated to carry gastrointestinal side effects that prevent patients from using them effectively. The Company also has the drug "Relax-B" under development in Canada for anxiety. The next drug will be an anti-migraine treatment. The Company plans to use the same technology to deliver a vast number of other FDA-approved drugs that require faster delivery or reduced hepatic and gastrointestinal side effects. These include anti-stress, sleeping disorders, pain killers, anti-allergy medications, heart and lung medication, migraine and addiction replacement therapies.
