Relay Medical Reports Glow LifeTech Secures Exclusive North American Rights to ArtemiC(TM) Following Successful COVID-19 Phase II Clinical Trial
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 16, 2021) - Relay Medical Corp. (CSE: RELA) (OTCQB: RYMDF) (FSE: EIY2) ("Relay" or the "Company"), a technology developer and innovator, and Glow LifeTech Ltd. ("Glow"), a private company in which Relay holds a significant equity interest, are pleased to report that Glow has executed an agreement with Swiss Pharmacan AG ("the agreement") for exclusive North American and Carribean sales and distribution rights for ArtemiC™ , a natural health product based on Glow's MyCell™ Technology ("MyCell") which recently reported successful results from a COVID-19 Phase II clinical trial (see Relay's release dated Jan 14, 2021).
Under the terms of the agreement, signed on February 16, 2021, Glow has exclusive rights to market, sell and distribute ArtemiC™ in Canada, U.S., Mexico and all Carribean countries as a food supplement. ArtemiC™ is a clinically tested food supplement (nutraceutical, dietary supplement, natural health product) containing four natural based ingredients consisting of Artemisinin, Curcumin, Boswellia serrata, and Vitamin C. The formulation uses Glow's MyCell™ delivery system technology to increase bioavailability and effectiveness of natural active ingredients. ArtemiC™ was a collaborative development effort with Glow's strategic partner, Swiss PharmaCan AG and MGC Pharma ("MGC"), and will be manufactured by MGC Pharma under EU-GMP.
"This is a significant new product opportunity for Glow and our shareholders, as ArtemiC™ shows promising results that it may improve the clinical recovery of COVID-19 patients," said Rob Carducci, Chief Commercial Officer, Glow LifeTech Ltd. "We are extremely pleased that our MyCell™ Technology is helping to power a natural, safe and effective product that can be made widely accessible during these challenging times."
Recently, MGC announced the results of a Phase II double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, which showed ArtemiC™ statistically significantly improved the clinical recovery of COVID-19 patients in comparison with the Placebo Group. 100% of the patients in the treatment group met the trial's primary endpoint and fully recovered within 15 days. None of the patients supported by ArtemiC™ required additional oxygen, mechanical ventilation or intensive care, compared to 23.4% in the placebo group requiring further assistance. The results deliver a full safety and efficacy profile, which is further supported by additional testing done by MGC on toxicity and mechanism of action.
"We continue to be encouraged with the broad applications of MyCell™ delivery technology and Glow's commitment to bring scientifically-validated products to market," said Yoav Raiter, CEO, Relay Medical Corp. "We believe ArtemiC™ is just the first of many innovative products to come from Glow, and as such, Relay has committed to participating in their recent RTO financing."
On February 9, 2021, Relay announced its participation in the go-public financing of Glow, investing an additional $600,000 to minimize dilution of its equity position. The Glow go-public financing was oversubscribed for a total of $4,640,000 which is part of its conditional approval to list its common shares on the CSE.
Glow and Swiss PharmaCan are now preparing regulatory submissions to pave the way for North American commercialization as a food supplement, or equivalent, in each of the relevant jurisdictions.
