VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA (January 24, 2017) - M Pharmaceutical Inc. (CSE: MQ, OTCQB: MPHMF, FWB: T3F2), (the "Company" or “M Pharma”), announced today as part of its planned acquisition of 40 J’s, that it will immediately seek marketing and distribution partnerships for the patented and proprietary topical products for the relief of menopausal symptoms that will be part of the assets being acquired. There are approximately 65 million women in North America currently nearing or experiencing menopause.
“Menopause is a natural occurrence in women brought about by the decline of the secretion of hormones by a women’s body. In many instances, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a standard medical treatment for these symptoms, but the strong synthetic hormones prescribed for HRT often lead to many undesirable side effects,” said Gary Thompson, President & CEO of M Pharmaceutical USA.
“Our product’s innovative topical formulation of menthol and L-arginine, paired with other key, naturally occurring phytoestrogens, has been shown to improve the symptoms of menopause without the unwanted side effects sometimes associated with standard HRT treatments. Our goal is to have distribution contracts in place and product shipping by mid-summer,” said Mr. Thompson.
Formed in early 2015, M Pharmaceutical Inc. is a clinical-stage company developing innovative technologies for obesity and weight management. In addition to its recent acquisition of C-103, a reformulation of orlistat from Chelatexx, LLC, the Company will focus on the development of its Trimeo capsules, temporary controllable pseudobezoars for non-invasive gastric volume reduction for the treatment of obesity, for which it has exclusive rights. The Company has also recently acquired an FDA cleared fertility product branded as ToConceive that represents its first offering in the women's health field.
M Pharma trades on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the ticker symbol “MQ” as well as on the OTCQB as “MPHMF” and FWB (Frankfurt Stock Exchange) as “T3F2.”
