Cortex Health, is a locally based distributor of highly specialised medical products and medical foods. Our background is in medical research, patient support initiatives and commercialisation within the Australian environment for the Australian community. Our initial product range has been to provide a real alternative to individuals who have Phenylketonuria (PKU) : an autosomal recessive metabolic genetic disorder in which the gene for the liver enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) is mutated and thus this enzyme is non-functional.
Whilst we haven't been in operation for very long our philosophy is simple...
... focus on PKU
Our goal is to do what's right for PKU and add value where we can.
Our Mission & Our Aim
Our Mission is to provide access to products that were previously out of reach for many Australians with PKU and to be a partner to the clinics which manage them.We aim to:
- Provide a new protein source for individuals with PKU, through the Cambrooke Therapeutics range of Gytactin Products
- Upload the latest and greatest news and advice on how these products can be used
- Provide unique low protein foods for PKU
- Share the latest recipes and ideas
We promise to make available this PBS listed range of Glytactin products of Camino Pro Bettermilk, Complete, Glytactin RTD and Restore and will make every effort to provide up-to-date information and make it as easy as possible for pharmacies to order.
