- MGC Pharma continues to progress CimetrA™ through the clinical trial process to demonstrate the efficacy and pharmacokinetic profile of the treatment.
The grant of the Patent provides MGC Pharma commercial protection over the intellectual property associated with CimetrATM’s unique formation and manufacturing process for a period of 20 years.
CimetrATM is a nano-micellular pharmaceutical synergetic composition consisting of Curcumin, Boswellia and optionally, Artemisinin, Cannabinoids and/or Nitroxides. The composition can be manufactured in liquid or solid pharmaceutically acceptable carriers, and has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulating properties, and is designed for multiple therapeutic applications utilising Graft Polymer’s GraftBioTM self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery system (SNEDDS).
