Tetra Bio-Pharma is a Canadian-based pioneer, innovator and first market mover in developing cannabis-based pharmaceuticals. These are used for the treatment of cancer-related pain and the resultant nausea, as well as anorexia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The global medical marijuana market is estimated to reach US$55.8 billion by 2025, according to Grand View Research. Health Canada has stated that they expected a mature medical marijuana market worth C$1.3 billion by 2024 in Canada alone.
Tetra Bio-Pharma is the first and only bio-pharmaceutical company in North-America that is focused on cannabinoid (CBD) clinical stage pain relief products. The Company believes that if all goes well, its flagship drug, PPP001, designed to treat the chronic pain associated with many cancers, will be on the market in 2019. The Canadian Cancer Society is estimating a 35% growth rate in cancer cases in Quebec, and 40% nationally by 2030. They also advocate for more spending on research on innovative drugs and end-of-life treatment.
Tetra Bio-Pharma is accelerating the acceptance of cannabis-based medical treatments. It is the only bio-pharmaceutical company currently running a double-blind Phase 1 study. It aims to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of single and multi-daily ascending doses of cannabis by smoking in healthy volunteers.
Pending a positive outcome, cannabis-based drugs designed to treat cancer pain and nausea from chemotherapy, PTSD and a number of other ailments will qualify for North-American Drug Identification Numbers (DIN). This means that prescriptions would be eligible for insurance coverage.
In addition to developing proprietary products and intellectual property, Tetra Bio-Pharma signed a supply agreement with ACMPR licensed producer Aphria Inc. on November 3, 2016. The Tetra-Aphria partnership was further solidified on April 19, 2017 when plans were announced for the joint distribution of dried medical cannabis for Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces.
