SciSparc Announces Rebranding and Business Updates
TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 11, 2021 SciSparc Ltd. (OTCQB: SPRCY), a specialty, clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on the development of cannabinoid-based treatments (formerly known as Therapix Biosciences Ltd.), today announced a series of rebranding processes.
"We are excited to announce that as of February 2021, we are rebranding our company. As part of our rebranding, our company name was changed from Therapix Biosciences Ltd. to SciSparc Ltd. This name change is part of our unwavering commitment as the new management, to our investors, to turning the company around and steering it in the right direction. The rebranding includes, among others, a new name, brand logo and share symbol, which correspond with our business direction and plans. Also a new website is coming soon," said Amitai Weiss, CEO of SciSparc.
Mr. Weiss added, "We recently entered into an agreement with Procaps, a leader in contract development and manufacturing services in softgel advanced technologies, to develop and commercially manufacture both our drug candidate, SCI-110 (formerly THX-110), and CannAmide™, in softgel capsule form. In addition, we commenced the commercial production of CannAmide™, that will be marketed to pharmacies and other retail outlets across Canada which will follow after we enter into a distribution agreement."
The new branding is in line with the company's innovative and advanced technology for treating various diseases and symptoms, using proprietary cannabinoid- based combinations.
As part of the rebranding, the company's clinical and pre-clinical programs were renamed as follows:
- SCI-110- An innovative and proprietary drug candidate platform based on Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), for the treatment of central nervous system diseases such as agitation in Alzheimer's, Tourette syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea
- SCI-210- A formulation of cannabidiol (CBD) and PEA for treating symptoms of autism
- SCI-160- An innovative and proprietary CB2 receptor agonist intended for the treatment of pain. This specific CB2 receptor agonist was synthesized by Professor Raphael Mechoulam, Ph.D.
- SCI-210- A formulation of CBD and PEA for treating symptoms of epilepsy
The company's first commercial product (approved for commercialization only in Canada), CannAmide™ will keep its name and trademark. CannAmide (TheraPEA) was issued a product license from Health Canada's Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) for the recommended use as an anti-inflammatory and to help relieve chronic pain.
