"We are excited to partner with Nestlé Health Science, a leader in nutritional health solutions that empower healthier lives. This partnership underscores our commitment to providing disruptive, science-derived products utilizing our Amino Acid Coupled-Transport (A₂CT™) technology platform to deliver better health outcomes in a broad range of therapeutic areas for patients in need of better nutritional support options. enterade® was designed to address the specific hydration needs of those patients undergoing cancer treatment or those with chronic GI impairment. We look forward to a long-term and productive relationship with Nestlé Health Science," said Stephen J. Gatto, Chairman and CEO of EHS.
Greg Behar, CEO of Nestlé Health Science, stated: "We are pleased to collaborate with Entrinsic Health Solutions. enterade®'s proprietary blend of scientifically-selected amino acids and electrolytes uniquely addresses the hydration needs of patients with cancer and chronic GI disease.

A prospective Phase II study of enterade® in NET and carcinoid syndrome patients with quality-of-life limiting diarrhea has been initiated and is expected to conclude in 2019. This new study will assess how enterade® helps patients absorb and retain fluids. A pilot clinical study conducted at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center demonstrated that daily consumption of enterade® leads to a marked improvement in patient's overall quality of life. These results were published in the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting Proceedings.
