  • Mountain Valley MD Files Trademark For Selactosol™

Mountain Valley MD Holdings Inc. (the “Company” or “MVMD“) (CSE: MVMD) (FRA: 20MP) (OTCQB: MVMDF) is pleased to announce it has achieved a water solubilized selamectin product using its patent-pending Quicksol™ technology.  To date, selamectin was considered a virtually water insoluble molecule with tremendous potential in treating parasitic infestations in husbandry and companion animals, as well as mycobacterium-based infections including Buruli Ulcer, Leprosy and Tuberculosis.

MVMD scientists successfully solubilized selamectin at 15mg/ml into a water solution without any organic solvents, which it believes is a critical achievement to allow formulation into topical application creams, oral rapid dissolve sublingual tablets, and injectable applications.

“We continue to accelerate our focus and efforts on solving the most significant human and husbandry animal health problems facing our global population,” stated Dennis Hancock, President and CEO of Mountain Valley MD.  “We are very optimistic that this breakthrough on selamectin will help MVMD pursue near term licensing and commercialization opportunities consistent with our business plan.”

The Company has filed for trademark protection under the brand name Selactosol™ to support its continuing work within the Quicksol™ line of water solubilized macro-cyclic lactones.  The Company has focused its initial efforts on already approved macro-cyclic lactones given its belief that they will yield the broadest commercialization opportunities in the shortest period of time.

Having successfully applied the Quicksol™ solubilization technique to the selamectin drug, MVMD will now proceed to formulate Selactosol™ 1.5% for preclinical evaluation trials of mycobacterium-based infections such as Buruli Ulcer, Leprosy and Tuberculosis.

“We believe this discovery to be a breakthrough that will enable the efficacy needed to treat respiratory infections such as tuberculosis by enabling the drug deposition into the airways and lungs through injections, aerosol formulations and pulmonary delivery,” stated Mike Farber, Director of Life Sciences at Mountain Valley MD.  “We are anxiously looking forward to proving the efficacy of this breakthrough in multi-drug and extended drug resistant strains of tuberculosis.”
