Tetra Bio-Pharma $TBP.ca getting ready to file a clinical trial application to initiate phase 3 clinical trial on terminal cancer patients in the coming weeks

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:17 AM on Monday, September 18th, 2017

Tbp large new

  • Announced that it will be filing a clinical trial application in the coming weeks to therapeutic products directorate 
  • Purpose to initiate its Phase 3 clinical trial of PPP001 in terminal cancer patients
  • With this filing, Tetra expects to be on time with its previously announced schedule with the development of PPP001

OTTAWA, ONTARIO–(Sept. 18, 2017) – Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:TBP)(OTCQB:TBPMF), today announces that it will be filing a clinical trial application (CTA) in the coming weeks to therapeutic products directorate (TPD) to initiate its Phase 3 clinical trial of PPP001 in terminal cancer patients. With this filing, Tetra expects to be on time with its previously announced schedule with the development of PPP001. The corporation worked with physicians of Sante Cannabis to design a clinical trial that would demonstrate the safety and efficacy of PPP001 in terminal cancer patients. In addition, as part of the clinical trial, Tetra will collect the pharmacoeconomics evidence required from provincial insurers in order to support the reimbursement of the first cannabis prescription drug.

A significant percentage of patients placed on a cannabis treatment suffer from side effects that are not tolerable. This can lead to patients stopping a potentially effective therapy. As part of its early phase clinical research, Tetra developed dosing strategies to minimize moderate and severe side effects in patients. This dosing strategy was developed in healthy volunteers over the last few months and has shown to be effective in reducing the severity of the side effects and preventing certain serious ones. This allows TBP to initiate its Phase 3 trial based on clinical data proposing a more tolerable approach to consuming smoked cannabis and to assess PPP001 in terminal cancer patients. This is a significant step in the development of a safe, tolerable and effective new drug for the management of chronic pain in terminal cancer patients with co-morbidities.

This will be the first Phase 3 clinical trial studying the therapeutic benefits of a smoked dried cannabis prescription drug in terminal cancer patients. Due to the status of cannabis under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act in Canada, over the last four months the corporation developed procedures and methods that would both satisfy the Narcotic Controls Regulations and ensure the protection of patients consuming the cannabis. The corporation is confident that these procedures will be well received by Health Canada as they ensure compliance with both the Food and Drug Act and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Tetra also reports that it has restructured its investors and public relation functions to integrate them with the marketing and communication functions. Mr. Edward Miller is leaving the Corporation effective as of today. We want to thank Mr. Miller for the work he has done for the Corporation over the last months and wish him all the success he deserves for his new professional projects.

About PPP001:

PPP001 aims to be the first smokable marihuana for advanced cancer pain under prescription. It is a dried cannabis pellet designed to be smoked in an inhalation device specifically developed for this product.

Medical Marijuana Seems To Reduce Deaths From Pharmaceuticals $MCOA.us $GCI.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:47 PM on Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
  • Columbia University epidemiologist June Kim and her colleagues report that fatally injured drivers are less likely to test positive for opioids in states that allow medical use of marijuana
  • That finding, together with the results of earlier studies, indicates that making marijuana legally available to patients saves lives by reducing their consumption of more dangerous medications.

Insys Therapeutics, the Arizona-based pharmaceutical company that recently became the biggest financial supporter of the campaign against marijuana legalization in that state, makes an oral spray that delivers the opioid painkiller fentanyl and plans to market another one that contains dronabinol, a synthetic version of THC. Insys says it gave $500,000 to the main group opposing Arizona’s legalization initiative because the measure “fails to protect the safety of Arizona’s citizens, and particularly its children.” But one needn’t be terribly cynical to surmise that Insys also worries about the impact that legalization might have on its bottom line, since marijuana could compete with its products.

A new study suggests Insys has good reason to worry. In an article published last week by the American Journal of Public Health, Columbia University epidemiologist June Kim and her colleagues report that fatally injured drivers are less likely to test positive for opioids in states that allow medical use of marijuana. That finding, together with the results of earlier studies, indicates that making marijuana legally available to patients saves lives by reducing their consumption of more dangerous medications.

Kim et al. collected data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) for 1999 through 2013, focusing on 18 states that drug-tested at least 80% of drivers who died in crashes. They found that drivers between the ages of 21 and 40 were half as likely to test positive for opioids in states that had implemented medical marijuana laws (MMLs) as in states that had not.

“Among 21-to-40-year-old deceased drivers, crashing in states with an operational MML was associated with lower odds of testing positive for opioids than crashing in MML states before these laws were operational,” the researchers write. “Although we found a significant association only among drivers aged 21 to 40 years, the age specificity of this finding coheres with what we know about MMLs: a minimum age requirement restricts access to medical marijuana for most patients younger than 21 years, and most surveyed medical marijuana patients are younger than 45 years.”

The fact that a driver tested positive for opioids does not necessarily mean the painkillers he took contributed to the crash, so it is not safe to draw any conclusions about medical marijuana’s impact on traffic safety from this study. But the FARS data are an indirect way of measuring the extent of opioid consumption in a given state. Kim et al. note that “severe or chronic pain is among the most common indications cited by medical marijuana patients.” It therefore makes sense that opioid use would decline (or rise less) in states that recognize cannabis as a medicine.
