SKVI and Quoin Pharmaceuticals to Provide Opioid-free Pain Relief Solution
Topical and transdermal product development company Skinvisible (OTCQB: SKVI
), through its recently entered non-binding merger agreement with Quoin Pharmaceuticals Limited, is planning to create a solution to the opioid crisis that is currently plaguing America. An article discussing this reads: “In response to the substance abuse epidemic sweeping the nation, Congress passed the 21st Century Cures Act, which was signed into law by President Obama in December 2016. The legislation allocates over $1 billion to a variety of programs, some of which will attempt to wean patients away from addictive opium derivatives, a push unlikely to cause any degradation in pain management regimens. Non-opiates, in many instances, have proven to be just as effective for pain relief as oxycodone, hydrocodone or codeine, some widely used opioids. In October 2017, President Trump declared a public health emergency to deal with the opioid epidemic. Now that opioid use has reached crisis levels, bringing benign alternatives to market could rescue thousands from the perils of addiction. Skinvisible, Inc. (OTCQB: SKVI) plans to do exactly that. It is teaming up with Quoin Pharmaceuticals, in a proposed merger, to provide pain management products that, unlike opioids, do not provide a cure that is worse than the disease.”
