VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 14, 2022. Pascal Biosciences Inc. (“Pascal” or “the Company”) (TSXV:PAS) (OTC:PSCBF) (FSE: 6PB-FF) is announcing a renewed and expanded emphasis on the consulting and contract research component of the business. Pascal has previously had success by providing resources to other biotech companies. In particular, the Company worked with SoRSE Technology last year, bringing over $600,000 into the company. Pascal scientists have, combined, over 80 years of experience in biotechnology projects and have been involved in the discovery, preclinical, and clinical development of drugs approved by the FDA. Our intent is to leverage this expertise to provide consulting and research services to customers with projects primarily in the post-discovery to Phase I period of development.
“Drug development has long timelines and, unless new drug candidates are forthcoming, preclinical teams tend to become redundant once a drug enters clinical studies.” stated CEO Dr. Brian Bapty. “By providing virtual preclinical services, Pascal can provide the direction, experience, and facilities to efficiently support multiple preclinical programs.” As with the SoRSE contract, Pascal will provide shared expertise and infrastructure so Biotech clients benefit from economies of scale while limiting fixed costs.
Pascal is in process of updating the website to reflect these changes. Pascal will continue development of internal programs notably, for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia which is funded by an NIH Grant, and glioblastoma which will be supported by funds from operations.
