Tetra Bio-Pharma issued a corporate update for shareholders disclosing some recent accomplishments and future goals for the company.
As quoted in the press release:
In Q3 of this year, TBP will file a request to commence a Phase 1 clinical trial for PPP004 our topical product indicated for General Neuropathic Pain, conservatively estimated as a billion-dollar market. Neuropathic pain can be caused by injury or disease and can be associated with such common conditions as shingles, diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, spinal stenosis and sciatica among other conditions.
In Q3, we anticipate filing a request to commence a Phase 1 clinical trial for PPP003 an ocular treatment for eye pain and inflammation and dry eye. The company has identified one lead compound that is a non-scheduled 1 cannabinoid which would significantly reduce time to market as is it not considered a controlled substance. TBP is also exploring conducting a study focused on Dry-Eye, in the USA.
Tetra-Bio-Pharma anticipates launching its Rx Oil capsules for the treatment of chronic pain and cancer pain in Q3 of this year. The company is presently conducting a Phase IV study expected to be completed in Q3 and we expect the launch to occur in Q3.
