Hancock, MD, Sept. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hancock, MD - PetLife Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC QB: PTLFD) (the "Company"), a developer of Vitalzul™, a new generation of high potency veterinary cancer medications and nutraceuticals for pets, announces plans to begin its Proof of Concept study as part of its pre-INAD (Investigational New Animal Drug) program. The study will be undertaken under contract by InnoVision Therapeutics. Proof of Concept studies are an early stage of clinical drug development when a compound has shown potential in animal models and early safety testing. These small-scale studies are designed to detect a signal that the drug is active on a pathophysiologically relevant mechanism, as well as preliminary evidence of efficacy in a clinically relevant endpoint.
InnoVision Therapeutics extensive work with Escozine (the human formulation of Vitalzul™) will effectively fast track PetLife’s studies due to the similarities in testing requirements of the drug. As was discussed in the shareholder newsletter last month, the potential for other disease treatment is very promising, and with InnoVision’s assistance, we expect to explore those areas upon pre-INAD study completion.
In addition, the restructuring of PetLife Pharmaceuticals has been completed as of September 12, 2016. For a 21 day period, the stock symbol will include a ‘D’ designation at the end, (OTC QB: PTLFD), reverting back to (OTC QB: PTLF) afterwards. This restructuring has been a part of PetLife’s business plan from inception, a step towards up listing to a higher exchange, such as NASDAQ or AMEX, once the company meets the necessary listing requirements.
“PetLife has started aggressively executing the Clinical and Regulatory plan outlined by Dr. Mishra, Chief Science Officer of InnoVision Healthcare (a division of InnoVision Therapeutics). As we do so, we will continue to provide appropriate business and technical support to ensure maximum value to PetLife’s shareholders.” stated Dr. Salvagno, CEO of PetLife Pharmaceuticals.
