Location: Toronto, Ontario Sector: Life Science
Windsor Botanical Therapeutics Inc. is developing a botanical health product, extracted from the root of Taraxicum officinale, (dandelion) for sale as a complementary therapy for cancer. The extraction process was scaled up to Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) status and is currently being manufactured under GMP standards by Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) of Calgary, AB. This complex extract has undergone preliminary analysis to identify key active components. WBTI intends to develop the material as a standardized botanical health product and, ultimately, an evidence based therapeutic. The product category, “Complementary Medicines for Cancer Therapy”, is estimated by Business Nutrition Journal to be a $1.1 billion market in the U.S.

MG cp Summary
MG cp Summary
  • If clinical testing results allow DRE-W to make cancer treatment claims, then DRE-W will stand out as a unique product in the natural health care product market – Currently available natural healthcare products can not make any claims regarding use as a cancer treatment.
  • Each batch of DRE-W produced by WBTI is quality controlled to ensure its ability to kill cancer cells. Studies conducted by WBTI provided the basis for a validated quantitative method of quality control- Studies conducted by WBTI showed that the effectiveness of homemade and commercially produced dandelion root extract vary widely or are non-existent.
  • Our research indicates that DRE-W is non-toxic: the Stage 1 Clinical trial will officially confirm this and the Stage 2 Trial should confirm that DRE-W improves patients’ well-being and reverses the progress of their disease Chemotherapy is toxic and can cause nausea, loss of appetite, loss of hair, discomfort, and a weakening of the body’s immune system.
  • WBTI owns a patent for the process to produce quality controlled DRE-W- Homemade and commercially available dandelion root extract either does not kill cancer cells or has no consistency in doing so. WBTI has spent the last 6 years researching and developing protocols to create effective DRE-W and only WBTI has the patent for its manufacturing process.
