New Equine Gastric Study Launched
Queensland-based company BioProspect Ltd has announced the initiation of a major safety study on the use of their product BioeffectiveA in horses as a natural health treatment. Following encouraging results from a 2008 screening trial in the UAE which tested the natural compound as a treatment for Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome, a specialist veterinary researcher in Sydney will undertake a study over 5 months with 20 horses to determine the product's efficiency and safety. BioProspect CEO Peter May commented: "Following last year's positive results in the UAE, we have now confirmed the market opportunity and also the regulatory pathway that will allow for the commercialisation of BioeffectiveA in the Australian market by 2010, and ultimately in overseas markets."
