ASTRIX® Capsules

ASTRIX® (aspirin) capsules are the only enteric-coated pelletized form of low-dose aspirin on the market, and are used for the same indication as ASTRIX® tablets. Their enteric coat prevents aspirin from being released until the pellets reach the small intestine, thereby reducing the risk of stomach irritation that may be experienced with longer term use of immediate-release aspirin.

Internationally, ASTRIX® capsules are currently licensed in China and Sri Lanka.

Opportunities remain for licensing.
