What is MCT®?
L-Tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid present in protein-rich foods. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are used in many processes in the body such as muscle building, cell construction and signalling. At Allergy Therapeutics we use specialised systems to process the Tyrosine to form a suspension (MCT®) that is combined with some of our subcutaneous injected therapies. Mixing the active allergen components with the MCT® (Micro Crystalline Tyrosine) allows a slow release after injection as the MCT® is broken down and used or excreted by the body.
