VANCOUVER, British Columbia and SEATTLE, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pascal Biosciences Inc. (TSX.V:PAS) (“Pascal” or the “Company”). Pascal announces that Dr. Patrick Gray, CEO, will present an update today on the Company’s lead cannabinoid-based drug candidate, PAS-403, at the Second Annual International Cannabinoid Derived Pharmaceuticals Summit taking place in Boston, MA.
The Second Annual International Cannabinoid Pharmaceutical Conference brings together world leaders researching the discovery and development of drugs from cannabis. Dr. Gray will discuss PAS-403 for the treatment of glioblastoma, including the progression to preclinical development, development of a manufacturing process, and fulfillment of FDA-required studies for biochemistry, metabolism, and safety.
“It’s rewarding to report on our continued progress at Pascal to support the start of clinical trials of PAS-403 in glioblastoma, a devastating brain cancer with limited therapeutic options,” said Dr. Gray. “As we near clinical development, we have the guidance of our renowned clinical advisory board, and we have recently filed an international patent application under the PCT to protect our PAS-403 program.”
Pascal will be presenting updates on additional programs to scientific and investor audiences later this year, including the upcoming CannMed 2019 Conference – Inspiring Science, Community & Hope – taking place September 23-24 in Pasadena, CA
