PreveCeutical Medical: Second Shipment of Dried Cannabis Materials Arrives at the Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence
Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 14, 2018) – PreveCeutical Medical Inc. (CSE: PREV) (OTCQB: PRVCF) (FSE: 18H) (the « Company » or « PreveCeutical »), announces the arrival of the second shipment of dried cannabis materials at the Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (« PACE ») at the University of Queensland (« UQ »). The shipment came from PreveCeutical’s partner, a Canadian licensed producer.
The cannabis materials will be used for PreveCeutical’s soluble gel (« Sol-gel ») drug delivery research program (the « Program »). The program involves testing of an array of cannabis strains for the development and commercialisation of cannabinoid-based Sol-gels. The Program is led by PreveCeutical’s Chief Research Officer, Dr. Harendra Parekh and conducted by the Company’s research partner, UQ. PreveCeutical intends to develop therapies for relief from a range of symptoms, including pain, inflammation, seizures and neurological disorders through this research. The advantages of Sol-gels over conventional liquid nasal sprays may include longer therapeutic effects, reduced dosage requirements, and reduced negative side effects, such as irritation.
PreveCeutical is a health sciences company that develops innovative options for preventive and curative therapies utilizing organic and nature identical products.
PreveCeutical aims to be a leader in preventive health sciences and currently has five research and development programs, including: dual gene therapy for curative and prevention therapies for diabetes and obesity; the Sol-gel Program; Nature Identical™ peptides for treatment of various ailments; non-addictive analgesic peptides as a replacement to the highly addictive analgesics such as morphine, fentanyl and oxycodone; and a therapeutic product for treating athletes who suffer from concussions (mild traumatic brain injury).
PreveCeutical sells CELLB9®, an Immune System Booster. CELLB9® is an oral solution containing polarized and potentiated essential minerals extracted from a novel peptide obtained from Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom. This product is available on the Company’s website.
