Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - April 27, 2021) - Glow LifeTech Corp. (CSE: GLOW) (FSE: 9DO) ("Glow" or the "Company"), a biotech company focused on producing next-generation, science-backed natural ingredients, is pleased to announce it submitted on Mar 11, 2021 an application to Health Canada to obtain product licenses for its Natural Health Product (NHP), ArtemiC™, which recently reported successful results from a COVID-19 Phase II clinical trial1.

"The global demand for natural, science-backed health products has been driven to new highs during this pandemic and Health Canada-approved products are globally recognized as safe, effective and of high quality," said Rob Carducci, Chief Commercial Officer, Glow LifeTech. "ArtemiC™ is supported with COVID-19 clinical results and represents a significant opportunity for Glow as a natural, safe and effective product that can be made widely accessible during these challenging times."
ArtemiC™ was submitted to Health Canada's Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) on Mar 11, 2021. The application, which is currently under review by Health Canada, included ArtemiC™ supporting COVID-19 Phase II clinical trial results. Under Canadian regulations, all NHPs must obtain premarket approval by Health Canada to assure they are safe, effective and of high quality before being allowed to be sold in Canada. Once Health Canada makes this assessment, they are issued a Natural Product Number (NPN).
"Glow is on a mission to unlock the healing power of plants and ArtemiC™ demonstrates the impact our unique technology can deliver. Our MyCell™ delivery technology provides us a platform to develop a broad portfolio of scientifically validated natural ingredients to power the next-generation of natural health products," said Tom Glawdel, PhD, Chief Operating Officer, Glow LifeTech.
Glow has exclusive rights to market, sell and distribute ArtemiC™ in Canada, U.S., Mexico and all Carribean countries as a food supplement (nutraceutical, dietary supplement, natural health product)2. ArtemiC™ is a clinically tested oral spray containing four natural active ingredients: Artemisinin, Curcumin, Boswellia serrata, and Vitamin C. The formulation uses the 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.
In December 2020, 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 Group1. 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 for toxicity and mechanism of action.
The Company is not making any express or implied claims that it has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain COVID-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.
