Alcresta, Inc. Company Profile

20:23 EDT 17th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Alcresta is a leading medical nutrition company developing and commercializing innovative enzyme-based products to improve the digestion and absorption of key nutrients to support growth and development and improve nutrition in people battling acute conditions or chronic diseases. The demand for high-value nutritional products is increasing, driving the growth of a $36 billion global market. While there have been important recent advances in nutritional drinks and products, there remains a significant need for enzyme-based nutritional products that support healthier living, maximize nutrient and caloric absorption, and complement conventional medical care. Leveraging its existing proprietary platform of point-of-care nutritional products, Alcresta has developed a lead product designed to improve the digestion and absorption of fats, in particular long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (including DHA, EPA and AA), and improve caloric intake. The importance of LCPUFAs is well documented across the full spectrum of patient care from infants to adults and individuals battling acute conditions or chronic diseases. The company’s platform is supported by the Alcresta team’s extensive experience in pharmaceutical and nutritional product development. Based in Newton, Mass., the company is backed by top-tier venture investors Bessemer Venture Partners, Frazier Healthcare and Third Rock Ventures.
