Cannabinoid pharmaceuticals now in development for inflammatory bowel disease and narcotic bowel syndrome a severe form of opiate-induced abdominal pain LOS ANGELES CA – February 1 2017 — Vitality Biopharma Inc. OTCQB: VBIO “Vitality Biopharma” “Vitality” or the “Company” a corporation dedicated to the development of cannabinoid prodrug pharmaceuticals and to unlocking the power of cannabinoids for the treatment of serious neurological and inflammatory disorders today announced the publication of a scientific manuscript that details internal research efforts including the discovery and production of cannabinoid glycosides. The scientific manuscript is titled “Cannabinoid glycosides: In vitro production of a new class of cannabinoids with improved physicochemical properties” which details the scientific pathway undertaken by the Company’s research and development team towards the discovery of a multifunctional plant enzyme from Stevia rebaudiana as well as an ability to produce a diverse class of cannabinoid compounds known as cannabinoid glycosides or cannabosides. The manuscript has been published through bioRxiv’s Biochemistry section on New Results which focuses on advances in life sciences research. The full manuscript can be found here: http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2017/01/30/104349. Small molecule glycosylation is increasingly recognized within the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries as a reliable means to alter the solubility and stability of drug compounds. Glycosylation may enable prodrug development strategies that extend patent life improve the bioavailability of existing medications and reduce side effects through targeted drug delivery. Traditionally most pharmaceutical companies employ chemical synthesis methods but chemical glycosylation is often ineffective due to the need for complex multistep synthetic routes that deliver inadequate yields. In 2013 Vitality Biopharma initiated a research program to overcome this key hurdle and developed efficient means of glycosylation through enzymatic biosynthesis. In late 2015 and 2016 Vitality scientists applied this technology towards cannabinoids including cannabidiol CBD and tetrahydrocannabinol THC creating a new class of cannabinoid glycosides called “cannabosides.” Vitality has already filed for intellectual property covering the subject matter described in this work including composition of matter claims for more than 20 cannabinoid glycoside compounds. Cannabosides are now being developed as pharmaceuticals for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease and narcotic bowel syndrome a severe form of opiate-induced abdominal pain.
