HypoSalix doesn’t exactly sound like a mouth-watering name, but that’s its function. This new spray is supposed to mimic saliva, for dry-mouth patients:
BioProgress PLC, the speciality pharmaceutical and healthcare company, said it has obtained registration for its Hyposalix spray for dry mouth as a medical device, and plans to launch the product in the EU within six months.
…HypoSalix is an artificial saliva spray for patients suffering dry mouth, which often occurs as a side effect from cancer radiotherapy and some drug treatments.
BioProgress said it is targeting the product for prescription use. But the device will be able to be sold over the counter.
Prescriptions! Are you kidding? Does bottled water need a prescription? Alas, maybe this is why we only write about devices instead of building them…
(Note: we couldn’t find a picture of this top-secret device; the photo above is of a competitor’s medical device, the Evian Spray).
