Through the novel application of gap analysis methods in disease biotechnology, SST develops medications that serve as biochemical prostheses that bridge broken reaction pathways, create a normal physiological environment and programme the body to build a natural resistance to the disease. Unlike conventional treatments that act to directly suppress diseases rapidly often with adverse side- effects, SST’s products are designed to gradually correct genetic faults and biochemical mistakes that underlie these diseases. 

SST has been developing a series of patented pharmaceutical and medical device technologies and has found commercial success in its product, Amzylite F1.2, the first of its many upcoming diabetic oral medications.
