Hollywood, April 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTC:ETST OTCBB:ETST $ETST OTC PINK:ETST) ("ETST" or "the Company"), an innovative biotech company focused on cannabis (industrial hemp) and cannabinoid research and development, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices, and its two subsidiaries Earth Science Pharmaceutical Inc. and Cannabis Therapeutics Inc., are proud to announce that they will be targeting breast cancer and other women’s health issues with their latest cannabis CBD-based (Indutrial Hemp) pharmaceutical drug development and research initiatives.

At the monthly Scientific Advisory Board development meeting on April 4th, attended by Dr. Chandra Panchal, Dr. Domenico Fuoco, Dr. Moutih Rafei, CEO/CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, and representatives of Smart Medicine, Inc., the group decided that their drug development initiative should target breast cancer and other women’s health issues. Cannabis-based treatments have proven to be tremendously effective in treating various forms of cancer, including breast cancer, and Dr. Michel Aubé has years of expertise in this specific niche. 

With the new direction established, the company has re-focused on several initiatives that will benefit the health of women worldwide. Around the world, women suffer from lack of access to healthcare, both for economic and political reasons, and an inability to take charge of their own health and healthcare. ETST is committed to developing products and services that give women easier access and more control over specific health issues that impact their lives.

The company is launching an in-depth study of cannabidiol’s known, unique anti-proliferative effect on breast cancer cells. CEO and Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Michel Aubé will leverage his expertise in this subject, having conducted research on deciphering the mechanism of action of organochlorine on breast cancer cells in his doctorate studies, to lead the group through the drug development pipeline. His previous work resulted in this scientific paper regarding breast cancer: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18275596

ETST’s goal is to bring generic pharmaceutical breast cancer and chemo-prevention drugs to market, making them affordable and available to women around the globe.

Several of the company’s immediate drug development projects will target breast and ovarian cancers, allowing that important work to benefit from an established in vitro and in vivo experimental infrastructure. Dr. Moutih and Dr. Aube will plan all in vitro and in vivo experiments and Dr. Rafei’s will supervise all experimental procedures.

The company’s relationships with Dr. Rafei’s and Smart Medicine will allow it to apply for public and private research grants to engage in R&D to:

  • Prove that Cannabis Therapeutics' Inc. Cannabinoid-improved generic drugs are more efficient - with less active molecules - than existing drugs, and therefore have fewer and less severe side effects on patients, particularly cancer patients.
  • Discover new applications for existing drugs.
  • Test the effects of cannabinoids on the human immune system should significant results come from the first round of research.
  • Create synthetic cannabinoids

Additionally, ETST is working on building a strategic partnership with Connexions Commerciales Internationales C.T. Inc., a company focused on hormonal replacement therapies. As previously announced, https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2017/03/27/945536/0/en/Earth-Science-Tech-Inc-Announces-Timeline-Projection-for-its-MSN-2-Medical-Device-and-Partnership-Negotiations-for-its-Cannabis-CBD-Based-Generic-Drugs-Medical-Device-Distribution.html. Many of their generic drugs will also be targeted to women health issues.

ETST’s other subsidiary, Earth Science Pharmaceutical Inc., is launching its first product, a medical device that will empower women to take an active role to protect themselves from the long-term medical problems caused by the Sexually Transmitted Infections chlamydia and gonorrhea. 

ETST continuously plans on updating its shareholders on the above mentioned studies as further progress and development occurs.
