Deal Making in Biotech Heating Up

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 9, 2019 / With huge deals biotech and cannabinoid-based companies have been reporting lately, the space looks poised for a big 2019.

One we like is cannabinoid-based biotech firm a, OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (OWCP). OWCP is positioned in multi billion of market opportunity between their two products, one is a pain-relieving soluble tablet, the other a topical cream set to combat conditions like Psoriasis. OWCP is well positioned in two major markets and could take off once it gets more market recognition. Do your due diligence today on OWCP.

Today we are highlighting: OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (OWCP), Celgene Corporation (CELG), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY), Cronos Group, Inc. (CRON), and Tilray, Inc. (TLRY).

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (OWCP) (Market Cap: $24.17M Share Price: $0.16) a developer of cannabinoid-based therapies targeting a variety of different medical conditions and disorders, has successfully produced its cannabinoid-enriched sublingual disintegrating tablet, specifically developed as smoking substitute. OWCP will now be able to begin its clinical testing program for this dosing form. OWCP has received an IRB approval to conduct a pharmaco-kinetic (PK) safety study of its sublingual tablet.

OWCP is also developing a cannabis-based topical ointment that recently completed recruitment of its last patient for its first ever safety study, conducted at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, Israel. The company also reported recently that it has been granted a patent in the Czech Republic covering its topical formulations for skin disorders.
