Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - May 21, 2020 - Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. ("Naturally Splendid", “NSE” or “the Company”) (FRANKFURT:50N) (TSXV:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) is pleased to provide the following update regarding preparation for a phase 2 clinical trial treatment for COVID 19. (See news release dated, May 19, 2020)


Health Canada has performed an initial review of data for a Clinical Trial Application (CTA) and have advised that the Biologic Division
within the Health Canada Office of Regulatory Affairs Biologic and Radiopharmaceutical Drugs Directorate is the appropriate channel to which the completed CTA can continue its processing. This significant designation creates a clear path for the CTA to proceed.

CavaltinibTM, the drug to be evaluated in the clinical trial and licensed to the joint venture owned by Naturally Splendid and Biologic Pharmamedical (Biologic) is based on technology and patents developed by Biologic. CavaltinibTM displays novel pharmacology discovered by Biologic and shown today to be a potential fit as a drug candidate for COVID-19 patient treatment. This candidate drug has been run through Biologic’s research program that was designed to study key drug targets involved in the regulation of immune system and inflammatory activity. The research has already shown Cavaltinib™ irrefutably inhibits IL-6 and several other cytokines central to the ‘cytokine storm’ phenomenon. It is yet to be proven in a clinical setting that mitigation of the ‘cytokine storm’ will show the same positive results with COVID-19 patients. Biologic has a major university in the United states also participating in a parallel trial.

 

Biologic Pharmamedical’s research methodology for probing key drug targets with these novel drugs is based on rigorous clinical study that utilizes accepted allopathic research protocols, thus affirming for medical practitioners the efficacy of Biologic’s subject drugs – both nutraceutical or pharmaceutical - with methods and results that are familiar to mainstream medical practitioners.

 

The referenced joint venture entity will be granted certain rights from Biologic’s patents as it relates to applications for treating COVID-19 infections. The categories to be licensed will include, but are not limited to COVID-19 applications, as well as additional respiratory indications that may arise out of the fast-tracked phase 2 clinical trial.

We caution that this news release is not making any express or implied claims that we have the ability to eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 virus at this time.

The scientific content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Biologic.
