CMXC Announces Results of Preliminary Analysis of Metabolomic Assays
News Feb 27, 2015
Cell MedX Corp. has announced that it has received the first results of the analysis of metabolomic assays taken during the Phase 1 pilot clinical trial.
The pilot clinical discovery phase trial in two diabetic subjects was performed in January 2015. Its main objective was to examine the short term metabolic impact of a single treatment with e-balance technology. Additional assays are pending.
Analysis of this early data set indicates substantial changes in at least two key pathways that would correlate with improvements in glucose and lipid metabolism. These findings will inform further experimentation, including the Phase 1B clinical trial, which begins recruiting in March 2015.
The analysis of the samples was conducted by The Metabolomics Innovation Centre at the University of Alberta (“TMIC”), whose analytic and informatics toolsets and translational “omics” expertise allows for cost-effective and more accurate results of assays.
We’ve all heard the expression: “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Now, research suggests why, at a cellular level, this might be true. Brief exposures to stressors can be beneficial by prompting the cell to trigger sustained production of antioxidants, molecules that help get rid of toxic cellular buildup related to normal metabolism.
