Drug Absorption in Geriatric Patients and Older People: a training network innovating drug development for the advanced age population

Project description

Oral drug absorption for the ageing population

Although the elderly population (>65 years old) is the group that suffers most from chronic disorders, they are paradoxically not considered in the drug development process, which only employs data from healthy adults aged 18–55. To address this limitation, the EU-funded AGePOP project will investigate the physiological gastrointestinal tract alterations associated with ageing and improve oral drug effectiveness. Through an interdisciplinary training programme, the project will help early-stage researchers study the characteristics of the gastrointestinal tract of older people and geriatric patients, thereby guiding the future development of drugs suitable for this age group.
