According to Dr. G. Chamberland, Chief Scientific Officer, “PPP is developing a prescription drug marijuana product for consumption via inhalation “smoking”. As part of its mission of bringing botanical-based therapies to patients with chronic diseases while maintaining the characteristics and properties of natural health products but backed by the scientific research and development of Pharma industry. Over the next years, the corporation is planning to develop the evidence to support the prescription of marijuana by physicians and to seek coverage by provincial and federal insurers.” “By implementing this approach, we believe that PPP is addressing the missing link that has existed for years as the major barrier of access to medical cannabis by both patients and physicians across the globe“, commented Ryan Brown, Vice-President of Business Development and Director of Communications for GCI.
Dr. Chamberland further commented that the company intends on submitting a Clinical Trial Application later this year (pre-CTA submitted in August 2016 as per previous news release) and when authorized by Health Canada would initiate its Phase I trial in humans later this year. “PPP001 is in its early stages of development, but based on published clinical trial data, the company is confident that it can bring this product to the market after completing the studies required by regulatory agencies“, commented Dr. Chamberland.
