HIGH SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - March 15, 2010) - CTD Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CTDH) (FRANKFURT: CDJ). During 2009 the company successfully supplied Cyclo™ for the treatment of NPC to children in India, Lebanon, Spain, Brazil, and Japan. "We are monitoring the results of these interventions and continue to supply larger amounts of Cyclo™ to the requesting medical facilities as they implement the AddiandCassi protocol," stated CEO, Rick Strattan. He continued, "The Company expects significant growth in its international sales of the Cyclo™ product line in 2010."
Recently, the AddiandCassi Foundation (www.Addiandcassi.com) had their orphan drug application accepted by the US FDA for Trappsol® Cyclo™ to treat NPC.
NPC is one of at least 42 rare, fatal diseases which are classed as lysosomal storage diseases (LSD). The enormous medical interest generated by the ameliorative results as achieved in treating NPC has brought these other rare diseases into the limelight giving hope that they, too, can benefit from Cyclo™ use.
