OXNARD, Calif., March 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CURE Pharmaceutical (OTCQB:CURR), (“CURE”) or (the “company”), a leading disruptive drug delivery technology company serving the pharmaceutical, biotech, veterinarian, medical foods markets, cannabinoid molecules and new chemical entities (NCEs), today announces a product development and license agreement with Dublin, Ireland-based Meroven, Ltd. (“Meroven”), for the development of oral thin film delivery for several molecules.
“We are excited to extend our reach into Ireland, and the Middle East, where Meroven intends to distribute these products. Meroven is an established player in these markets, and we believe that the combination of their distribution and our proprietary drug delivery technology will help fill a void in these localities,” said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. “We are pleased to be adding another OTC product to our production line and look forward to continued and expanded opportunities to work with Meroven. In addition, we anticipate the announcement of additional deals in the short term, and look forward to sharing these milestones with our stockholders.”
As part of the agreement, CURE will formulate and manufacture oral thin film that delivers 1.25mg of Vitamin D3 utilizing the company’s proprietary formulation and manufacturing capabilities and its patented CureFilm™ technology. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and is needed for bone growth. Vitamin D also prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
“CURE Pharmaceutical has cultivated an exceptional reputation in terms of their efficiency and purity of its internal formulation and manufacturing processes,” added John Kiernan, Director of Meroven, Ltd. “We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with CURE and anticipate expanding the relationship above and beyond the current product.”
