  • Alberta based Atlas BiotechnologiesTM invests in leading Oncology Biotech research firm, Flavocure.

    November 06, 2018- Edmonton, Alberta- ?Atlas Biotechnologies Inc. is pleased to announce a 20% investment in Flavocure Biotech, which has an impressive pipeline of oncology research. Flavocure has a patent pending on two therapeutic molecules, which use cannabis flavonoid derivatives in the treatment of three aggressive forms of cancer: AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia), pancreatic, and glioblastoma (brain) cancer.

    “Flavocure is an excellent fit for Atlas Biotechnologies. Our business philosophy is built around curing disease and illness using cannabis derivatives. Flavocure’s FDA orphan drug designation for the treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia, combined with their attractive oncology pipeline, made them an obvious choice for collaboration. We intend to jointly develop specialized cannabis cultivars to further unlock the potential of targeted flavonoids in medical research”, said Sheldon Croome, Atlas Biotechnologies CEO.

    Flavocure is based in Maryland, USA and collaborates with some of the world’s most prestigious cancer research institutions. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved one of Flavocure’s two proposed therapeutics, Cresorol, with an orphan-drug designation.

    Dr. Henry Lowe, an industry pioneer of cannabis phytopharmaceuticals and Flavocure’s founder and Executive Chairman, added, “Our early success in finding cannabis derived molecules for new therapeutic cancer discoveries attracted the interest of a great partner in Atlas. We are very much looking forward to collaborating with them on our genetics program and other drug research programs in the field.”

    As part of the integral future collaboration, Atlas will hold a seat on Flavocure’s initial 7-member Board of Directors. Jeffrey R. Gossain, P.Eng, VP of Operations and one of Atlas’ founding Directors will aid in the development of the operational and corporate structure at Flavocure.

    Atlas plans to develop a breeding program dedicated to isolating additional molecules in the flavonoid spectrum and identifying further cannabinoids for potential research and supply for future drug commercialization.

  • From Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT)

    Investigation continues into RCMP officer-involved shooting

    On April 6, 2019, at approximately 8:15 a.m., RCMP were advised of an Eckville, Alberta location where stolen oilfield property might be found.

    An RCMP officer responded to the reported location at the rear of a strip of businesses on the north side of Eckville.

    The officer found four vehicles at the location. As the officer was checking the vehicles, he located a man who appeared to be sleeping in a Ford F250 truck and made cursory observations of the interior of the vehicle. The officer returned to his police vehicle and checked the licence plate number, which came back registered to a different vehicle. The officer requested assistance to his location, placed a spike belt and returned to his police vehicle to await assistance.

    While the officer was waiting for assistance, a confrontation occurred that resulted in the officer discharging his service pistol.

    The man sustained a single gunshot wound that resulted in serious, but not life-threatening injuries. He was treated on scene by EMS, transported to hospital and admitted. He remains in hospital.

    The Ford F250 was determined to have been stolen approximately 5 days earlier from Saskatoon and the licence plate was also determined to have been stolen.

    With the investigation underway, ASIRT will not make any further comment until the matter is concluded.
