Plandai Biotechnology Announces Phytofare to Be Focus of Human Clinical Trial for Type II Diabetes in Mauritius
May 16 17
Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. announced that its green tea catechin-based Phytofare® will be the active ingredient in a human clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of using Phytofare® to regulate blood glucose levels in Type II diabetics. The trial, sponsored by Plandaí's licensee, ProText Mobility, Inc., will be conducted by the Centre International de Developpment Pharmaceutique (CIDP) in the country of Mauritius. Mauritius was selected as the site for the human clinical trial because an estimated 25% of the population suffers from Type II Diabetes. The study is titled "Clinical Trial on Humans to determine the efficacy of Phytofare® for lowering HbA1C levels in II Diabetes patients." When glucose builds up in a person's blood, it binds to the hemoglobin in red blood cells. The HbA1C test measures how much glucose is bound over a 2-3 month period to determine average plasma glucose concentration. The objective of the study is to determine the efficacy of Phytofare® Catechin Complex for improving the levels of hypoglycemia in people with diabetes as emphasized in the American Diabetes Association's new 2017 Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes. Prior to commencing the clinical trial, Plandaí will first be conducting a bioavailability study this month with Mauritian-based CIC Cynologies to determine the human clinical study dosage of Phytofare® Catechin Complex. Results from this bioavailability study are anticipated in June 2017, and can then be used to finish the Type-II diabetes human clinical trial protocol. That study, to be undertaken by CIDP, will commence towards the end of 2017 in Mauritius and will run over a 180-day period. Results will be available soon thereafter. Independent research has indicated that green tea catechins are effective in blocking adipocyte differentiation and proliferation; however, results have not been replicated in human trials because of green tea's poor oral bioavailability*. The Company believes that Phytofare® Catechin Complex because could produce positive results because the unique manufacturing process of Phytofare® yields an end product that contains all eight catechins (antioxidants) found in green tea, and prior human clinical studies have shown that Phytofare® delivers ten times more catechins to the blood plasma over generic catechin extracts, where they remain at therapeutic levels for more than 24 hours.
