Tapeworm's Chemical Trick Could Make Drugs More Effective

MADISON, WI - To survive and thrive in a decidedly hostile environment, the lowly tapeworm uses a chemical trick to evade the propulsive nature of its intestinal home.

Capitalizing on that tapeworm chemistry, scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison believe they may have found a way to slow the transit of drugs through the intestine, making them more effective in their delivery a......

"Many drugs are absorbed at less than 50 percent from the intestine," says Oaks. "The key......
