OWC Pharmaceutical Research To Collaborate With Sourasky Medical Center In Tel Aviv For Safety Study On Its Cannabis-Based Tablets

ISRAEL: OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp., the company transforming cannabis into scientifically proven and clinically approved medical solutions, announces an agreement with the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center Fund.

The medical center will perform a single-dose, randomized crossover study to compare the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of OWC’s tablet with Buccal Sativex in healthy adult volunteers. The tablet is designed to provide rapid API uptake through buccal membranes and to be a substitute for patients being treated with medical cannabis by smoking.

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. is focusing its efforts on developing cannabis-based therapeutic products and treatments, specifically designed for several medical conditions and diseases. The company’s solutions include a topical ointment to treat skin diseases, such as psoriasis, a sublingual disintegrating tablet to treat chronic pain, and a unique formulation aimed at treating multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells found in bone marrow.

“There is a very large amount of hype surrounding medical applications of cannabis, but we are one of the few companies doing real medical research,” says Mordechai Bignitz, CEO of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. “Our collaboration with Sourasky Medical Center is further proof of our commitment to developing real cannabis-based medical solutions.”
