CURE Pharmaceutical Secures Patent for Oral Thin Film Containing Bioactive Cannabinoid Molecules
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CURE Pharmaceutical (OTC:CURR), an innovative drug delivery and development company, announced the allowance of an oral thin film patent (U.S. Patent No. 10092611), which covers the processing and integration of bioactive cannabinoid molecules into oral thin film dosage forms, such as CUREfilm™, the most advanced oral thin film on the market today. These molecules such as cannabidiol (CBD), are obtained from CURE’s patented methods (U.S. patents No. 9,044,390 and 9,186,386) of extraction and purification of cannabis plant material.
“With over 140 cannabinoid molecules present in the cannabis plant, we have only seen a glimpse of the potential of cannabinoids to treat many diseases and illnesses,” said Rob Davidson, CEO and Chairman of CURE Pharmaceutical. “This patent will allow us to implement accurate and optimal dosing for treatments using isolated cannabinoid molecules to target the endocannabinoid system.”
The patent will be key to commercializing oral thin films containing cannabinoids. CUREfilm technology is ideal for the delivery of cannabinoids as it offers increased bioavailability, ease and precision of dosing and greater palatability. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in plants, such as cannabis (phytocannabinoids), synthesized by cells of the human body (endocannabinoids) or synthesized in a laboratory (biosynthetic cannabinoids) that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is recognized as an important modulatory system in the function of the brain, endocrine and immune tissues.
The patent also covers the research findings from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, a public research university in Haifa, Israel, where CURE sponsors research. The current research at Technion is testing fractionated molecular components from the cannabis plant against various cancer types in vitro and in preclinical models.
