Cannabis & Biotech Stocks Starting to Rally in 2019

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 4, 2019 / A rough end to 2018 left a host of biotech companies oversold. Many of these companies are starting to rally, and now is the time to research them before they hit or surpass their 2018 highs.

One of the best examples of the opportunity investors have in front of them is, BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX) a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, is developing a therapy "ThermoStem" using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue. The company traded above $3 dollars last year before hitting lows with the rest of the biotech industry. The company has started to rally in lockstep with the industry's ETF: IBB, and could be on the verge of a breakout that may send BRTX above their 2018 highs. Get a jumpstart on the crowd by researching BRTX today.

Today we are highlighting: BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), Aphria, Inc. (NYSE: APHA, TSX: APHA), Aurora Cannabis, Inc. (ACB), 22nd Century Group, Inc. (XXII) and Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ZYNE).

According to Grand View Research, the global obesity treatment market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2024. According to the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, about 30% of the global population is either obese or overweight. These are just a couple making companies developing weight management solutions so valuable to investors.

One of the more novel approaches to fighting this obesity epidemic is being developed by, BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX) (Market Cap: $8.94M Share Price: $0.70) a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, developing a therapy "ThermoStem" using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue ("BAT"). BAT is intended to mimic naturally occurring brown adipose depots that regulate metabolic homeostasis in humans.

BRTX just received a Notice of Allowance on the company's fourth patent for their metabolic ThermoStem program. The company's patents span US, Australia and Japan.

Initial preclinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels. This is a very promising sign for the company.
