Description

Lower Blood Phe with NeoPhe.
Clinically proven combination of large neutral amino acids (LNAA) that block Phenylalanine at the gut level resulting in lower blood Phenylalanine.

Clinically Proven

  • Data from pilot studies conducted in Ukraine, Russia and the US revealed a decrease in blood Phe concentration of 52%-55% form baseline. When NeoPhe was discontinued, blood Phe concentrations increased to pre-trial levels. 1
  • Double blind studies performed in seven (7) different centers indicate that LNAA can compete with Phe on the transporter in the GI tract, resulting in a decrease in the blood phe-level in patients on NeoPhe, averaging 39% from baseline levels. 2

Indications

  • Adults, teenagers and children 8 years or older
  • BH4 non-responders
  • High blood Phe levels despite strong diet compliance
  • Non compliant, untreated or late-diagnosed PKU patients

Benefits

  • Monitor blood Phe levels for tolerance.
  • NeoPhe tablets and powder can be used interchangeably.
  • NeoPhe results in liberalization of the diet for most PKU patients.
  • Decrease in consumption of low protein foods.
