KALY – Kali-Extracts, Inc. Publishes Cannabis Extract Lung Disease Treatment Study Preview
Dallas, TX – February 5, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Kali-Extracts, Inc. (Kali, Inc. dba/Kali-Extracts, Inc.) (USOTC: KALY) (“KALY”) today published a preview of the recently announced long-term, pilot study on the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in primates with cannabis extracts derived from Kali-Extracts patented cannabis extraction process. The study adds to the Kali-Extracts in vitro genomics study, previously announced, to evaluate the impact of its pharmaceutical grade cannabis extracts in combination with other therapies on COPD patients. The World Health Organization estimates 65 million people worldwide are afflicted with moderate to severe COPD and GlobalData forecasts that the COPD treatment market will reach $14.1 billion by 2025.
The primate study was conducted by Professor Jeffry Osbourn, Ph.D., from the University of Kentucky and his Biomedical Science Research Group (BSRG). Professor Osbourn made the following statement in regard to the research: “We investigated the effects of a novel, new oral-delivered agent for the treatment of lung diseases like asthma, and inflammation of the lung airways, in research animals. To our surprise, the new [Kali-Extracts] supplement increased lung capacity by 2 to 3 times and increased the rate of breathing, returning lung function to normal. These large increases in lung function would likely lead to improved oxygen levels in the blood and increased breathing ability in these animals. Future experiments are planned to more closely identify the mechanisms of this improved overall lung function leading to greatly improved life styles and greater participation in daily activities for these patients.”
A final report on the primate is study coming in March.
