LAS VEGAS, September 6, 2022 (Newswire.com) – Gb Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX), a leading plant-inspired, biopharmaceutical research and drug development company, describes their progress towards achieving significant milestones in their drug development pipeline in an article published in the journal Pharma’s Almanac today at https://www.pharmasalmanac.com/articles/unlocking-the-therapeutic-potential-of-plant-inspired-minimum-essential-mixtures.
“Gb Sciences is focusing considerable resources on bringing our lead Parkinson’s disease formulations to the clinic with promising results already obtained during the formulation of Oral Dissolving Tablets containing our active ingredients for use in human clinical trials,” said Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, President, Chief Science Officer, and Director of Gb Sciences. “We have new data validating the efficacy of our novel anxiety formulations in an animal model, as well as new data demonstrating the improved stability of our oral nanoparticle-encapsulated chronic pain formulations based on newly-adopted manufacturing control processes.”
The full article entitled “Unlocking the Therapeutic Potential of Plant-Inspired Minimum Essential Mixtures” also provides some context for their recent drug development successes by discussing Gb Sciences’ evolution from a cannabis company to a plant-inspired biopharmaceutical company and what makes their drug development approach truly unique. With conventional drug discovery efforts failing to deliver on some critical medical needs, such as non-opioid treatments for chronic pain, there may be value in exploring plants associated with traditional medicines to discover new drug molecules and simplified mixtures. Gb Sciences is connecting plant-based medicine with modern in silico drug discovery tools, leveraging a unique AI-enabled platform to mine plant species and compounds to uncover minimum essential mixtures of molecules with therapeutic benefits and reduced side effect profiles.
