  • POA Pharma Scandinavia AB expands the partnership with Metabola Med s.r.o., Praha

    POA Pharma Scandinavia AB expands its partnership with Metabol Med to include exept the IEM products also the Antisecretory Factor – SPC Flakes® and Salovum®.

    Antisecretory Factor (AF) is a protein secreted in plasma and tissue fluids in mammals. This 41-kDA protein provides protection against diarrheal diseases and intestinal inflammation. The AF protein is induced by cholera toxin and was first isolated and characterized by Swedish researchers Lange and Lönnroth in the 80´s. Immunocytochemistry has shown that AF is present in most tissues. The endogenous plasma level of AF is increased by enterotoxins and surprisingly also by certain food constituents. Based on these findings, AF inducing medical food have been developed. SPC Flakes® is an AF-inducing medical food and Salovum®  (B221) is an AF-rich egg yolk powder.

    Clinical trials in Crohn´disease and short bowel syndrome has shown that AF exerts both antisecretory effects and anti-inflammatory effects. Because of the effects on hypersecretion in the GI tract it was hypothesized that AF treatment could be valuable in other instances were fluid balance is thought to play a role, such as Ménière´s disease. This has been proven in four published studies out of them two are  double blinded and one a cross-over trial.
