Executes Master Services Agreement with WEP Clinical Ltd
Sydney, July 23, 2021 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Medlab Clinical Ltd (ASX:MDC), an Australian biotech using delivery platforms to enhance medicines is pleased to announce the execution of a Master Services Agreement (MSA) with WEP Clinical Ltd (WEP) for the exclusive development and delivery of Named Patient Programmes relating to the unlicensed supply of its proprietary NanaBis(TM) and NanoCBD(TM) to patients in the UK and Europe.
This Master Services Agreement is the first partnership for Medlab to supply their cannabinoid medications outside of its current Australian Special Access Scheme.
Dr Sean Hall, CEO of Medlab stated, "This is a major milestone for Medlab to begin supplying NanaBis(TM) and NanoCBD(TM) on prescription for the first time to patients outside Australia."
Established in 2008, WEP Clinical manages pre-approval Expanded Access (EAP) and post-approval Named Patient (NPP) programmes on behalf of established pharmaceutical companies and healthcare providers. WEP provides end-to-end EAP and NPP solutions which include regulatory expertise, real-world data collection, drug warehousing and distribution services to help patients with an unmet medical need receive unapproved medicines in a timely manner.
Jas Khera, Managing Director at WEP Clinical stated "WEP Clinical is pleased to partner with Medlab Clinical to bring novel cannabinoid medications to patients in Europe and UK. The early clinical trial data and development programme supporting their products in cancer pain management coupled with their unique patented NanoCelle(R) delivery platform is what excites us about working exclusively with Medlab in the cannabis-based medicine space."
Over the next 3 months, Medlab and WEP will undertake the required work to prepare for the entry of both NanaBis(TM) and NanoCBD(TM) into the UK.
Mr Laurence McAllister (Medlab Board Director) stated: "This Compassionate Program approval for the UK & Europe coupled with the Special Access Scheme (SAS) in Australia is now creating the Medlab, NanaBis(TM), NanoCelle(R) and NanoCBD(TM) branded Medlab trademark awareness in clinicians and patient's hands to build the trusted quality of the hard clinical trials and R&D bench work behind the medicine, and now we need to finalize the North American initiative with the FDA that is well developed as soon as possible."
