Jaguar Health (NASDAQ: JAGX) was recently featured in a B2i release spotlighting the company’s focus on developing first-in-class, plant-based treatments for gastrointestinal (“GI”) disease. The release noted that JAGX and its family company Napo Pharmaceuticals are specifically looking at treating overactive bowel, which causes debilitating symptoms such as chronic debilitating diarrhea, GI urgency and GI incontinence in both humans and animals. The new initiative with B2i is part of a strategic campaign designed to increase investor engagement and interest.
“The most critical near-term catalysts are the expected availability in late Oct. 2023 of top-line results of Napo’s phase 3 clinical trial to expand crofelemer into the preventative treatment of chemotherapy-induced overactive bowel (‘CIOB’) in adults with cancer on targeted therapy, and the generation of proof-of-concept data by the end of 2023 and in 2024 to expand crofelemer into two rare disease indications: short bowel syndrome (‘SBS’) and microvillus inclusion disease (‘MVID’) with intestinal failure,” stated the B2i Digital release. “Jaguar Health offers several key strengths for investors to consider: Jaguar Health is developing multiple formulations of its key product, crofelemer, to treat different gastrointestinal diseases; canalevia-CA1 is the first and only product indicated for CID in dogs to receive any type of approval from the FDA; beyond its core focus, Jaguar Health has invested in an intriguing new venture targeting mental health disorders through natural plant-based prescription drugs.”
