Prisyna, the oral care division of Synedgen, has announced the market launch of Moisyn Rinse for the relief of xerostomia.
Xerostomia affects a large percentage of the adult population and as much as half of the elderly population in the United States. The symptoms of dry mouth significantly impact patient quality of life and often cause difficulty in chewing, swallowing, and speaking. Xerostomia can result in oral mucus that is thick and dry, painful oral tissues, bad breath, and sleep disturbances.
Moisyn Rinse is a companion product to Moisyn Mist, Prisyna’s dry mouth spray. The Moisyn product line is the first glycomics-targeted therapy that has been shown in a clinical study to reduce pain and increase comfort for patients living with dry mouth.

“The launch of Moisyn Rinse is another great milestone for Prisyna and our dedicated team," said Leo Pranitis, general manager of Prisyna. "I believe our technology is truly unique, innovative, and most importantly, addresses a need that is not currently being fully met with the product offerings on the market. Prisyna’s advanced, patented technology provides relief that soothes dry mouth symptoms. We are now pleased to offer patients dry mouth relief in both a rinse and spray form.”
“It’s exciting to see our product line expand to include the Moisyn Rinse," said Shenda Baker, PhD, COO of Synedgen. “The value of Moisyn to patients reflects the benefit of our core glycomic science in addressing important medical challenges. Prisyna is the first of our divisions to become commercially viable, and we look forward to bringing our innovations to other areas of medicine where acute needs still exist.”
