Preparing for commercialization, and for regulatory filing purposes, Tetra is branding its cannabinoid-derived drug under the commercial trademark CAUMZ (formerly referred to as PPP-001).

“I look forward to the day when Tetra’s cannabinoid-derived drugs will help reduce, if not eliminate the reliance on drugs like Fentanyl(R), Oxycodone(R) or morphine and that hopefully the study drug will be able to bring serenity to patients in their difficult journey through the disease.”

“I am extremely pleased with Tetra’s ability to quickly resolve the problem that required us to suspend our clinical trial in advanced cancer pain,” said Tetra CEO and CSO Dr. Guy Chamberland.

“The continuation of our research is excellent news, not only for those suffering with advanced cancer pain and other symptoms but also for our investors,” he said.

“With great challenge comes great opportunity and what we are now able to deliver is a better and more reliable product.”
