SAN FRANCISCO and HERZLIYA, Israel, Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannformatics, an early-stage biotechnology startup focused on the identification and application of saliva-based Cannabis-Responsive™ biomarkers and Cannabotech, a biomedical company developing medical solutions based on botanical combinations of cannabis extracts and functional mushrooms, today announced that Cannabotech has commissioned Cannformatics to conduct a study to evaluate the effects of Cannabotech's Cannabo-Nerve combination on human patients suffering from chronic neuropathic pain. This study will also compare "MycoCann NeuroPain" to other leading off-the-shelf medical cannabis pain relievers that are currently being sold in the state of California.
"We are honored that Cannabotech chose Cannformatics to scientifically evaluate the impact of 'MycoCann NeuroPain'". Pharmacometabolomic data in combination with study participant pain assessments are unique in their ability to provide insights into a product's physiological mechanism of action and ability to manage chronic pain," said Cannformatics CEO and Cofounder, Dr. Itzhak Kurek. "This is an exciting opportunity to support Cannabotech in bringing new hope to patients suffering with chronic neuropathic pain and deepen our understanding of pain related Cannabis-Responsive biomarkers."
The study will be conducted under the supervision of an FDA regulated Institutional Review Board (IRB) in conjunction with Cannformatics' Advisory Board members Donald Abrams, M.D. and Bonni Goldstein, M.D. Subject to receiving IRB approval, Cannformatics will begin recruiting participants for the study. People interested in participating in the study may sign up for study updates at www.cannformatics.com.
Elchanan Shaked, CEO and Chairman of Cannabotech said, "For the past two-years Cannabotech has built a rigorous scientific pipeline for the development of cannabis- and mushroom-based products. The unique formulation that will be tested combines an exact composition of 13 cannabinoids and terpenes with mushroom extracts for the purpose of reducing chronic neuropathic pain without THC-related psychoactive effects. Cannformatics' technology will provide novel insights obtained in a real-world setting, adding an important layer to the high-quality scientific evidence necessary to gain the support of the medical community ahead of a planned launching of 'MycoCann NeuroPain' in the second half of 2022."
