NAPLES, Fla., Feb. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Enveric Biosciences (NASDAQ: ENVB) (“Enveric” or the “Company”), a patient-first biotechnology company developing novel cannabinoid medicines to improve quality of life for cancer patients, announced today that it has launched a strategic development collaboration and exclusive supply agreement with PureForm Global, Inc. (“PureForm”), a biotechnology company focused on the research, development and commercialization of synthesized CBD and other cannabinoids, for treating pain and inflammation resulting from cancer treatments. The agreement allows two leading edge companies to bring their focus and resources to bear on superior products to serve unmet medical needs.
“For the millions of cancer patients that continue to suffer from debilitating treatment side effects, the status quo in supportive care options is no longer acceptable,” said David Johnson, Chairman and CEO, Enveric Biosciences. “As a market leader in producing pure, consistent, synthetic CBD from non-cannabis plant sources, PureForm should complement Enveric’s supportive care expertise. Together, we intend to apply a high level of rigor in our scientific research, to create better treatment options that improve quality of life for cancer patients across the world.”
Under the terms of the agreement, PureForm will work exclusively to support Enveric’s development plans in the cancer treatment and supportive care space, with Enveric owning the intellectual property. With its work, Enveric is initially targeting supportive care indications that include radiodermatitis, chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, and glioblastoma.
“As Enveric’s exclusive synthetic, non-cannabis-based CBD supplier for all of the Company’s compounds, PureForm intends to work closely with the team to select and develop next-generation, cannabinoids to help serve physicians and patients,” added Richard Nanula, CEO, PureForm. “Through collaborating on this innovative discovery program, PureForm’s goal is to help Enveric fast-track its efforts to produce impactful, pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoid applications that benefit the global medical community as a whole in the near future. Additionally, Enveric gains a guaranteed long term supply of high quality CBD, making consistent product available for preclinical and clinical studies.”
“Next-generation medicines, including cannabinoids, may be beneficial in providing a solution for these patients with high unmet medical needs,” concluded Johnson. “By bringing the Enveric and PureForm teams’ expertise together to work on these novel compounds, we expect to not only advance our pipeline but also further our drug development efforts to benefit patients and their families.”
