Axim Biotechnologies Inc (AXIM) on March 21, 2017 announced that its major investment company AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc. (AXIM Biotech) (AXIM), a world leader in cannabinoid research and development, has retained the services of Ora, Inc., a global Contract Research Organization (“CRO”), to perform the company’s upcoming product development (based on AXIM’ IP) and clinical trials for treating glaucoma and dry eye utilizing cannabinoid-based therapeutics. Ora is the world’s leading ophthalmology CRO for advancing products from pre-clinical through approval and post-market phases.
Ora will run the clinical programs under the supervision of Prof. Robert Ritch, Surgeon Director Emeritus and Chief of Glaucoma Services at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York (NYEE). Prof. Ritch is a world-renowned expert in ophthalmology and glaucoma in particular, and has joined AXIM’s Advisory Board in December 2016.
“It is exciting to see AXIM start on pre-clinical efforts alongside esteemed ophthalmology professionals to develop a cannabinoid based eye drop medication that may assist glaucoma sufferers,” said Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “This partnership between AXIM and Ora is another new exciting milestone for AXIM’s clinical development program, as it continues to move forward finding cannabinoid-based solutions for conditions for which there is no effective treatment.
“Over three million Americans have glaucoma, which is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, according to the World Health Organization,” Dr. Titus continued. “We anticipate this partnership to enhance AXIM’s glaucoma and xerophtalmia (dry eye) products development, ultimately improving the well-being of patients across the globe who suffer with these conditions. At this time, it is anticipated that initial development and early stage trials will be performed in Europe but Ora, Inc. will be pushing to receive DEA approval for U.S. trials once the clinical development leads to human trials.”
“Despite new product approvals, glaucoma and dry eye remain ophthalmic diseases with significant unmet medical needs. Approximately 40% of glaucoma patients require more than one IOP-lowering medication. We hope that the development of new treatments with novel mechanisms of action will in turn reduce the risk of progression of visual field loss,” said David A. Hollander, MD, MBA, Chief Medical Officer of Ora. “Dry eye is one of the leading reasons for patient visits to eye care specialists. Novel therapies that address the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease will be welcomed by both dry eye sufferers and physicians.”
