InvestorNewsBreaks – Jupiter Wellness Inc. (NASDAQ: JUPW) Initiates Exploratory Clinical Trial for Treatment of Herpes

Jupiter Wellness (NASDAQ: JUPW), a leading developer of cannabidiol (“CBD”)-based medical therapeutics and wellness products, has initiated a clinical study evaluating the treatment of herpes labialis (cold sores) for its prescription topical cream candidate JW-100. The company believes this trial may be the first to analyze the efficacy of a combination CBD-aspartame product in the treatment of herpes labialis. JUPW’s topical cream, JW-100, features a dual mechanism of action and relief combined with CBD’s potential ability to induce apoptosis in epithelial cells infected with Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpes virus, with aspartame’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. The study will include 40 patients enrolled through clinical sites in both Europe and Asia. Patients will have been diagnosed with recurrent herpes labialis infection (“HSV”) with initial infection at least a year previously. “We are rapidly advancing our clinical pipeline with our third indication,” said Jupiter CEO Brian John. “Herpes cold sores are common, with an estimated 48% of Americans aged 14-49 having had the HSV-1 virus. We believe JW-100 has the potential to treat and provide relief with fewer side effects than the treatments on the market today. This exploratory clinical trial is in line with a Phase I FDA study, and therefore we believe the resulting data will be a valuable addition to the Investigational New Drug (‘IND’) application we plan to file with the FDA for advanced stage trials in the U.S.”
