Hungarian medicine – tradition and innovation in the service of maintaining health

Hungarian medicine and pharmaceuticals have long established themselves as reliable and high quality in the international space. Among the Hungarian medical achievements, including the discovery of mRNA technology, which made it possible, in a relatively short time, to create new vaccines that saved 1,000 lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Large studies of cyclodextrins for pharmaceuticals are also being conducted in Hungary. Although this direction is less known to the general public, this does not negate its importance for the production of new, effective drugs and the reduction of the side effects of their exposure. The Hungarian Export Development Agency HEPA is actively promoting the Hungarian medical field in international markets, which will provide better medical care for patients, expand the capabilities of medical professionals and researchers, and improve the overall quality of life of many people.

Inhalo DSI Kft. is a large Hungarian manufacturer engaged in the production of such popular medical equipment as saline inhalers. Before dwelling on the company's products in more detail, it is worth separately focusing on the very concept of "salt inhalations". It is widely known that sea air, saturated with salt, helps to cleanse the lungs and bronchi. In the treatment and prevention of acute respiratory viral infections, salt rooms also showed good efficiency, which many experts recommend visiting. For a better understanding, usefulness and effectiveness of salt inhalers, let's talk a little about salt from the point of view of science.

Many think of salt as just a spice, even though it is vital to maintaining good health.

Inhalation therapy has been used for respiratory diseases for a very long time. The beneficial effect of halotherapy, that is, salt therapy, was first demonstrated by the Polish surgeon Flix Boczkowski in 1843.

Salt particles are deposited in the airways at different depths depending on their size. Particles larger than 8 micrometers are deposited in the pharynx, and particles 5 to 8 micrometers in size are deposited in the large airways. Particles ranging in size from 0.5 to 5 microns can reach the lower respiratory tract and settle there. Therefore, they are the most effective for medicinal purposes.

Cyclolab Ltd. is one of the largest manufacturers of cyclodextrins for pharmaceutical companies. The company is the first manufacturer of Dexolve, a generic Betadex Sulfobutyl Ether Sodium (SBECD = DexolveTM) that meets USP and EP criteria.

The Dexolve component expands the possibilities of preparations based on it:

      Significant increase in solubility (from 10 to 100,000 times)
Improved chemical stability
Increased bioavailability, easier delivery
Reduced aggregation
Moderate irritation or reduced side effects
