Jaguar Kicks Off Educational Awareness Contest in Honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day

Jaguar, Napo Pharmaceuticals (Jaguar's wholly owned US subsidiary), and the Italian subsidiary of Napo Pharmaceuticals, Napo EU S.p.A., are deeply committed to recognizing and honoring the knowledge and expertise of Indigenous healers who first discovered the medicinal properties of specific plants. Many of the world's important pharmaceutical medicines were developed by studying the traditional medicine of Indigenous peoples.

In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day (October 11, 2021), Jaguar has dedicated this fifth educational awareness contest in the company's series to recognizing and celebrating a few of the many Indigenous woman who have contributed greatly to the health and well-being of Indigenous peoples, the preservation of Indigenous cultures, and the protection of the natural world.

The winner will receive a copy of Plants, People, and Culture: The Science of Ethnobotany, by Michael Balick, Ph.D. and Paul Alan Cox, Ph.D. - a fantastic book that features information about Jaguar ethnobotanist Steven King, Ph.D., the company's Chief Sustainable Supply, Ethnobotanical Research & IP Officer. Dr. Balick, a member of the scientific strategy team for Jaguar's Entheogen Therapeutics Initiative, is a specialist in healing plants and toxic plants and their use by Indigenous peoples and is considered one of the world's leading ethnobotanists and economic botanists. Ethnobotanist Dr. Cox was named by TIME magazine named as one of 11 "Heroes of Medicine" for his work in ethnobotanical drug discovery. He was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize, sometimes called the Nobel Prize of the Environment, for his efforts in preserving Samoan rainforests.

The winner will be chosen at random from the pool of contest participants who correctly answer all or most questions in the multiple-choice form. Entries must be received by 9:00 a.m. US Eastern Time on October 11, 2021. No fee is required to enter the contest. Additional contest terms and conditions apply.

Mytesi® is not indicated for the treatment of infectious diarrhea. Rule out infectious etiologies of diarrhea before starting Mytesi®. If infectious etiologies are not considered, there is a risk that patients with infectious etiologies will not receive the appropriate therapy and their disease may worsen. In clinical studies, the most common adverse reactions occurring at a rate greater than placebo were upper respiratory tract infection (5.7%), bronchitis (3.9%), cough (3.5%), flatulence (3.1%), and increased bilirubin (3.1%).

More information and complete Prescribing Information are available at Crofelemer, the active ingredient in Mytesi®, is a botanical (plant-based) drug extracted and purified from the red bark sap of the medicinal Croton lechleri tree in the Amazon Rainforest.
