SEATTLE, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AquaLiv Technologies (OTCBB: AQLV) subsidiary, AquaLiv, Inc., discusses alternative medicine registration in Kenya for their NatuRx™ HIV/AIDS treatment.
The company previously announced that Kenyan officials recommend they register NatuRx™ HIV/AIDS as an alternative medicine treatment and that approval could be granted within 30-60 days.
"The process isn't quite as simple as it was explained to us," stated AquaLiv CEO, Craig Hoffman. "It isn't just the treatment that is being registered. Registration also requires completed retail packaging and inspection of a manufacturing facility that complies with cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) regulation. We wanted to simply get approval for the treatment, but that just isn't possible without the manufacturing component in place."
Mr. Hoffman continued, "We are looking for a manufacturing partner that could eventually supply the treatment to all African countries and we have identified some candidates in both Kenya and India. The big question for us right now is do we sign on with a partner capable of manufacturing our treatment as a liquid solution, as we do now in our laboratory, or should we wait until we have modified the treatment to be delivered in tablet form. We're closer than ever to being able to deliver all NatuRx™ treatments in tablet form and we think we will know definitively before the end of our planned clinical trial, which is when we would actually begin sales of the product."
The company further explained that tablets are more economical to distribute and will require fewer manufacturing partners overall.
"We're confident we will have the manufacturing issues worked out before the end of the trial," added Bill Wright, CEO of AquaLiv Technologies. "However, we communicated to our investors that an alternative medicine registration could be granted around this time and felt it was important to give investors an update."
Based on AquaLiv's patented BioT™ Bioinformation Technology, NatuRx™ formulations utilize novel wave-based information composites in lieu of molecules for treatment.
