M Pharmaceutical Inc. Engages Camargo Pharmaceutical Services To Develop Regulatory Strategy For Newly Acquired Chelatexx Technology

VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA (October 11, 2016) - M Pharmaceutical Inc. (CSE:MQ, OTCQB: MPHMF, FWB:T3F2 ), (the "Company" or “M Pharma”), is pleased to announce that it has engaged  Camargo Pharmaceutical Services, in order to help develop a drug development strategy for the Company’s recently acquired patented Chelatexx technology, known as its C-103 reformulation of Orlistat.

C-103 is a novel formulation of Orlistat, patented until 2030 in the United States. Orlistat is FDA-approved for weight management and sold by Roche as Xenical® (prescription) and by GlaxoSmithKline as alli® (over-the-counter).  Orlistat is the best-selling weight loss medication of all time with peak sales over $900 million in 2007. C-103 is intended to maintain the efficacy of Orlistat while minimizing its socially unacceptable side effects.

Known for their experience and expertise in 505(b)(2) drug development, Camargo Pharmaceutical Services provides guidance to navigate the complex regulatory landscape via the most time- and cost-effective path forward. Camargo ensures FDA buy-in, and aligns complete development plans with business strategies. Camargo routinely leads up to 6 meetings with the FDA per month, has guided more than 200 FDA approvals, and works with product developers from more than 25 countries.

“At Camargo, we focus on providing guidance through all aspects of drug development, ensuring our client-partners’ programs advance through the regulatory process, gain approval, and commercial success,” said Dr. Ruth Stevens, Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of Camargo Pharmaceutical Services. “We look forward to working with M Pharmal on their C-103 reformulation of Orlistat.”

“At this exciting and critical stage in the development of C-103, our leadership team and Advisory Board believe it is prudent and necessary to benefit from Camargo’s guidance and expertise. This alliance will strengthen our effort and expedite the process to bring C-103 to market, benefitting millions of potential people looking for solutions to reach and maintain a healthy weight,” noted Mr. Brian Keane, President and CEO of the Company.

Drug Treatment Portfolio

Obesity, Weight Management Treatment

C-103 is a novel reformulation of orlistat, patented until 2030 in the U.S.  Orlistat is FDA-approved for weight management and sold by Roche as Xenical® (prescription) and by GlaxoSmithKline as alli® (over-the-counter).  Proven safe and effective in over 100 clinical trials, orlistat is the best-selling weight loss medication of all time with peak sales over $900 million in 2007.  The C-103 reformulation addresses adverse events reported by over 90% of orlistat users. These adverse events have led to the decline in Orlistat sales to approximately $200 million in recent years. 

C-103 is intended to maintain the efficacy of orlistat while minimizing its socially unacceptable adverse events. Unlike other weight loss drugs:

  • Orlistat is not an amphetamine
  • Orlistat does not affect the central nervous system
  • Orlistat is not systemically absorbed
  • Orlistat is the only FDA-approved OTC weight loss drug because of its safety
  • Orlistat is the only FDA-approved weight loss drug for adolescent patients (age 12-18)

Infertility Treatment

ToConceive is an innovative new infertility treatment that offers hope and assistance to the millions of couples worldwide struggling to start a family. Our product is an easy to use topical gel that helps to balance the pH of the vagina and is clinically proven to increases a women’s natural production of transudate (sexual lubrication). This increase in natural transudate is required for successful “Sperm Capacitation” to occur. Without the process of Sperm Capacitation, the sperm would not have the ability to travel the required distance to the ovum or have the appropriate chemical makeup for successful conception to occur.

ToConceive is a women’s health treatment supported by a FDA 510K clearance and is protected by four USPTO patents. ToConceive’s proven ability to increase a woman’s natural production of transudate results in significantly higher success rates for couples trying to conceive, without the added expense, or stress, associated with assisted reproduction treatments.
