BURBANK, Calif., March 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Medolife Rx, Inc. ("Medolife"), a global integrated bioceutical company with R&D, manufacturing, and consumer product distribution, which is a majority owned subsidiary of Quanta, Inc. (OTC PINK: QNTA), announced today clinical trial results conducted on its lead drug candidate Escozine® where the drug eradicated in vitro bladder (SCaBER) and ovarian (OVCAR-3 and IGR-OV1) cancer cell lines when administered for 24 hours.

The study was conducted at one of the most prestigious academic research facilities in the United States. The goal of the study was to assess the viability of human bladder and ovarian cancer cells treated with Escozine®, the Company’s polarized drug candidate derived from a small molecular peptide found in scorpions. It examined the effects of both polarized and non-polarized versions of the drug on the viability of cell walls, finding that only the polarized version had a significant effect on eliminating the cell lines in all three cancers. This highlights not only the potential of Escozine® as a treatment for cancer, but the increased efficacy and bioavailability of the drug through the polarization methodology unique to Medolife Rx. Cell lines are commonly used in in vitro model systems in many drug discovery research programs. They retain most of the genetic properties of the cancer of origin and provide researchers with an indefinite source of biological material for experimental purposes (source). This study was especially significant in that Escozine® eradicated the cell lines completely, furthering the hypothesis that the drug could eliminate cancer cells in humans completely as well.

“We could not be more pleased by the results of this research,” said Medolife CEO Dr. Arthur Mikaelian. “As we progress in our clinical research on Escozine®, where we are initially targeting product registration and approval for treatment of COVID-19, we are conducting ongoing research on its potential therapeutic benefits as a treatment for various other indications, including many types of cancer. In this study, our drug completely eliminated the cell lines of two types of cancer in three samples. These results are not just exciting, they could be the precipice for what could become an effective treatment for one of the largest health issues in the world. Beyond proving the peptides’ ability to eradicate cancer cell lines, the study also showed how effective our polarization technology is on increasing efficacy. With results like these, I could not be more confident in Escozine® as a viable treatment for a variety of health issues and we are so proud to continue to push it through clinical trials around the world.”

The Company is conducting concurrent clinical studies on Escozine® around the world in countries such as the Dominican Republic and the United States. It is seeking product registration in the Dominican Republic for treatment of COVID-19, where it recently announced positive efficacy and safety results on over 500 patients. Additionally, it has filed data on Escozine® with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Pre-Investigational New Drug (PIND #150335) as a COVID-19 therapeutic and is hoping to receive a response in short order. Medolife utilizes a patented polarization technology in all of its clinical drug candidates and nutraceutical consumer products that increase the potency of single molecules and complex compounds.

About Medolife Rx

Medolife Rx, Inc. is a global biotechnology company with operations in clinical research, manufacturing, and consumer products. MedolifeRx was created through the merger of Medolife, a private company founded by Dr. Arthur Mikaelia who pioneered the unlaying polarization technology that makes the Company’s portfolio of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products so effective, and Quanta, Inc., a direct-to-consumer wellness product portfolio company. The Company’s lead clinical development programs include Escozine®, a proprietary formulation consisting of small molecule peptides derived from Rhopalurus princeps scorpions which is amplified by the Company’s polarization technology and is being researched as a treatment of various indications, including COVID-19 and cancer. The Company has completed preclinical safety and efficacy research on Escozine® and is pursuing product registration and drug approval in various countries, including the United States and throughout Latin America. 

Through its subsidiary QuantRx, Medolife manufactures and distributes consumer wellness and nutraceutical products in high-impact consumer areas such as pain relief, beauty, and general wellness. QuantRx products are designed using Dr. Mikaelia’s polarization technology which applies advances in quantum biology to increase the potency of active ingredients. Currently, QuantRx supports product formulations in pain management, anti-inflammation, skincare, agriculture, nutritional supplements, and plant-based consumables. Ultimately, Quanta's mission is to deliver better, more effective ingredients to elevate product efficacy, reduce waste, and facilitate healthier, more sustainable consumption.

Beyond its own clinical and consumer applications, the polarization technology used by Medolife and its subsidiaries has many potential applications. From potentiating bio-ingredients, to producing more-effective carbon-trapping plants, to transformative anti-aging solutions, Medolife has the opportunity to upend how commercial and pharmaceutical products are made and increase their benefits, while decreasing their chemical concentration.
