PetLife Pharmaceutical Taps National Public Relations Firm to Help Bring to Market Cancer Treatment Originally Developed by Cuba
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB:PTLF) (the "Company"), a developer of a
new generation of high potency veterinary cancer medications and
nutraceuticals for pets, announced today that it has retained Gregory
FCA Communications, Inc., one of the
nation's largest public relations agencies, to help bring to market a
breakthrough cancer treatment for pets produced from the venom of the
Venom from the blue scorpion, which is native only to Haiti, Cuba, the
Dominican Republic, and Venezuela, has been used for more than 20 years
in Cuba to treat cancer patients. Blue scorpion venom is one of the most
expensive liquids in the world.
PetLife Pharmaceuticals is embarking on a series of clinical trials for
its use in pets here in the U.S. The announcement comes on the heels of
PetLife Pharmaceuticals' appointment of Dr. R. Geoffrey Broderick as
Chairman of Product Development. As one of the world's most famous
veterinarians, Dr. Broderick is considered the father of the natural pet
food industry and who has been working for the past 50 years to reduce
and prevent cancer in dogs and cats.
"Nearly 13 million pets receive a cancer diagnosis each year, and for
many it's a death sentence," begins Dr. Broderick. "Nearly 50 percent of
pets age 10 and over will die from cancer. Current treatments-including
surgery and chemotherapy-are heinously expensive, barbaric, and riddled
with side effects.PetLife Pharmaceuticals is the first organization in
the world to investigate the use of scorpion venom as a non-toxic
treatment for cancer, which has the promise of saving millions of pets,
while improving the quality of life for both pets and their owners."
"PetLife Pharmaceuticals' commitment to saving pets lives through this
novel therapy is filling a desperately needed unmet medical need in
veterinary care," says Greg Matusky, president and founder of Gregory
FCA. "It's critically important that this drug becomes available to pets
and their owners here in the U.S., considering the opening of relations
with Cuba and recent acceptance of many medical discoveries made there."
For instance, last fall, Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New
York won the right to conduct the first FDA-sanctioned study of a
vaccine to treat lung cancer in humans. PetLife Pharmaceuticals sees
similar parallels in its development of cancer therapies in pets.
"The advancement of this drug will serve as the culmination of more than
50 years of my work in veterinary medicine and the heartbreak I see
played out over and over again with the loss of life and its devastation
to families," continued Dr. Broderick. "PetLife Pharmaceuticals is
working hard to produce the venom, conduct the clinical trials, and
reduce the incidences of cancer in pets."
