Dallas, TX, April 20, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- AloeVeritas today announced the call for consumer volunteers in a Phase I study of AloeMD, also known as an extracellular matrix protector and pain disruptor. AloeVeritas is testing AloeMD; a physician created and patented topical application formula, designed for temporary and long-term natural pain relief from chronic inflammation. And in turn, is advocating and supporting toxic pain medication abuse awareness.
The Phase I study, conducted in conjunction with Painsmarts, is a strictly volunteer, randomized, study. The goal of the study is to evaluate the unique active botanical compound efficacy, tolerability and safety in an alternative pain reliever with volunteers from around the world. The study will take place in the United States and Europe, and will enroll subjects until the end of the year.
AloeVeritas partnered with patent holder, Dr. Joseph McWherter, and through AloeVeritas worldwide rights it will study, develop and commercialize specific patented compound combinations for the natural relief of chronic pain due to inflammation. AloeMD’s drug-free formulation containing Dr. McWherter’s patented 100% natural bioceutical matrix is a molecular compound, which targets the extracellular matrix through a novel mechanism of topical smart absorption delivery technology, allowing the body to ultimately repair itself, naturally, without the use of toxic chemicals.
"AloeVeritas and PainSmarts share a commitment to advancing natural botanical compounds with the potential to address the unmet need that exists for consumers experiencing chronic pain with little to no long-term relief from common pain modalities and limited alternatives to drugs or opioid-based pain medication," said Christopher Hardy, CEO, AloeVeritas. "Dr. McWherter’s leadership in the clinical development of this product, and work to ensure rapid progress toward the patent approval, has allowed us to advance this important study. We look forward to our continued collaboration as we move toward our strategic goal of providing all-natural alternatives, and changing the way consumers view pain relief in the future.”
