TEL-AVIV, Israel, September 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CNBX) announced today that it has filed an extensive provisional patent application with the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) on a new Method for Sensitivity Tests of Cannabinoids on Patient-Derived Tumor Biopsies and CTCs.
The method, developed by Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, expands the company's proprietary technology of personalization of cannabinoid medicine. The current invention pertains to a combined method and system for assessing the sensitivity of a variety of cannabinoid- based treatment modalities on patient-derived primary tumor biopsies as well as blood circulating tumor cells (CTC). This recent patent filing is a strong message and a vigorous reflection of the company's target: Cannabics methods and products will enable exquisitely accurate medical cannabis solutions to be applied quite soon into mainstream medical practice.
Dr. Moran Grinberg, Cannabics Pharmaceuticals VP of R&D said "There is a need for a more personalized approach toward drug development and diagnosis that takes into account the diversity of cancer patients, as well as the complex milieu of tumor cells within a single patient. This approach is faced with numerous challenges, including tumor heterogeneity and tumor mutation rates along with insufficient tumor samples available".
