Through a proprietary scientific platform, HST is developing therapies that address metabolic deficiencies through the application of either proprietary or Patent-Pending Nutraceutical technologies, or where appropriate, Medical Food products. Medical Food products are FDA-regulated products, in a relatively new category of medical protocols defined by Congress as part of the Orphan Drug Act. Medical Food products are formulated for administration under the supervision of a physician and are intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition based on recognized scientific principles and established by medical evaluation. Medical Foods can be prescription products, but are different than drugs or dietary supplements in several aspects, such as their claims. Claims for both Medical Foods and drugs must be supported by solid laboratory and clinical data.
