(OTCQB: CNBX), a leader in personalized cannabinoid medicine focused on cancer and its side effects, today announced that it has obtained approval for a nationwide Israeli multisite clinical study on the antitumor properties of cannabinoid compounds on primary cancer biopsies. The apoptotic/cytotoxic effects of a multitude of cannabinoid extracts will be evaluated via Cannabics' high throughput screening platform.
Dr. Eyal Ballan, CTO and Co-Founder of Cannabics, said: "We believe this is a quantum leap for the research on the biology of cancer and cannabinoids.
