Vancouver, Canada – September 22, 2021 – Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX-V: SBM) (FSE: ZSB) (US-OTC: SRBCF) (“Sirona”) reports that In Vitro studies completed on compounds developed by our scientists at TFChem have shown a strong potential for anti-cellulite activity. The data showed evidence for both the ability to reduce existing cellulite and to prevent the formation of new cellulite. The mechanism of action is technically complex involving a pro-lipolytic effect, a decrease of the adipocyte size and an anti-inflammatory effect.
Sirona’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Géraldine Deliencourt-Godefroy and her team have created a development plan and will begin the safety testing required for a clinical trial. Specific details of the compounds will be communicated immediately following the filing of patents.
Cellulite is the development of orange-peel like skin, particularly in the thigh and buttock area due to fat under the skin and often develops further with aging. There are currently no truly effective therapies to treat cellulite. The global market size was valued at USD 1.4 Billion in 2020 and is expected to have a compounded annual growth rate of 11.0%.
Additionally, as follow up to the last quarterly report, our pharmaceutical partner from the second clinical trial of TFC-1067 has successfully completed due diligence as scheduled. Follow up discussions are scheduled in September to discuss next steps with the goal of completing a long-term definitive agreement.
“We’re very excited about this discovery in a valuable market. Once again, the immense potential of our platform technology is demonstrated. While our scientists conduct ongoing analysis of this discovery, management will continue to focus on the priority of further partnering TFC-1067” said Dr. Howard Verrico, CEO. “With respect to 1067, we are pleased to be at an advanced stage following extensive due diligence and scientific research by our clinical trial partner. We are looking forward to next steps with great confidence.”
