Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc (OTCMKTS:CNBX) decided to create a new division for developing RCC-33, an anti-tumor drug, to cure colorectal cancer. It is on the backdrop of scaling up its efforts for clinical validation of its leading drug candidates. As part of this effort, the company establishes tie-ups with medical centers, engages in in-vivo clinical experiments, and prepares a dosage plan to request a pre-innovative new drug (IND) application meeting with the FDA.
CEO of Cannabics, Eyal Barad, said the company is developing a treatment colorectal cancer using a proprietary and innovative formulation – RCC-33. Until now, the company carried out several POC experiments at its in-house drug development facility. It decided to establish a dedicated facility for its leading drug candidates’ centralized and coordinated developmental efforts.
