Promino Nutritional Sciences and Dr. Patrick Gunning to Begin Preclinical Studies Focused on Targeted Nutritional Supplementation for Cancer Patients

The preclinical study will test the Company's patented amino acid formula's efficacy in mitigating muscle loss in cancer patients

BURLINGTON, ON, May 8, 2024 /CNW/ - Promino Nutritional Sciences Inc. (CSE: MUSL) (OTC: MUSLF) (FRANKFURT: 93X) (the "Company" or "Promino") is pleased to announce it has retained award winning PhD Dr. Patrick Gunning to assess preclinical studies conducted on its patented formulation's mitigation of muscle loss in cancer patients. Dr. Gunning will be joining the Company as a special advisor on various preclinical studies over the next 12 months.

Dr. Patrick Gunning is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Toronto, Canada, Research Chair in Medicinal Chemistry, and Founder and Chief Scientific Director of the Centre for Medicinal Chemistry (UofT). Patrick obtained his PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2005. Over the last 17 years he has developed a dynamic and diverse medicinal chemistry program targeting disease-relevant proteins. Dr. Gunning has published over 130 papers, won over 20 research awards, including being named in Canada's Top 40 under 40.

The prevalence of muscle loss among cancer patients has been reported as between 20% and 70% depending on the type of tumor and the criteria used for assessment. Nutritional interventions should be an essential part of the multimodal approach to cancer. There are an estimated 17,113,494 people suffering from cancer in the United States alone.

"I am excited about this opportunity to evaluate Promino's core patent for mitigating weight loss in preclinical trials of many different human cancers," explained Professor Gunning. "Improving the lives of cancer patients has been a life-long endeavor, and to play a role in evaluating a product that could actually help make a positive impact is important to me. High energy consuming tumors coupled with aggressive chemotherapy treatments often lead to severe weight loss in cancer patients, causing the patient fatigue, poor quality of life – and ultimately – poor clinical outcomes."

"The health care industry has been moving toward personalized medicine since the mapping of the genome," stated Vito Sanzone, CEO of Promino Nutritional Sciences. "Designing personalized nutraceutical supplements for specific diseases is the natural next step. We are very excited about these studies to explore specific amino acid based supplements from our core patented technologies to enhance the lives of cancer patients globally. We couldn't be more pleased to have the calibre of Professor Gunning involved in this project."
