How we take a medicine actually matters!

How we take a medicine actually matters!

There are lots of ways we take medicine. Many we take in tablet form for absorption through the digestive system, some are by injection directly into the bloodstream such as intravenous drips and others can be by a spray, under the tongue, to the back of the cheek or nasal, such as bronchodilators like Ventolin or nasal decongestants like Sudafed (Spray) While medicines are designed to have a certain effect, the way we take the medicine also has to be part of the design.

Medlab Botany Office

The next chapter

June is normally the “madness” month as companies do all things to finalise the financial year; for us, that was no exception, but factor in opening and relocation to our second Sydney site.

The old adage that if you fail to plan you are planning to fail is attributed to US founding father Benjamin Franklin. We’d hope Ben might be impressed with the extent of planning for success that goes into Australian biotech these days.

Hemp from US farms now legal, But caution on Cannabis prevails, rightly so

Scientific discovery, noble, enriching, future-proofing

Science operates in a land of discovery, opportunity, inspiration and unremitting hard work. A company focused on life science, research and development has to account for many things, looking back at what has been achieved and forward to how we can shape our science to combat chronic disease.

Looking back, a guide to looking forward

The history of biotech teaches us many lessons. If you want to be successful, you can’t be a one-product company and you need to be part of the mainstream of world health issues that surround us. These considerations have shaped Medlab’s strategy and are borne out in our 2018 milestones.

There's Pot, then there's researched cannabis....Quite a difference

From snake oil to medicine – A huge gap, and there should be

Harsher critics see them all as snake oil, without any medical claims and just producing expensive urine. There are also studies which diminish any therapeutic potential of supplementation – and to be frank, I agree with a lot of this criticism.
