Health Canada has approved Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc’s protocol for a clinical trial investigating its PPP001 drug as an alternative to fentanyl in the management of breakthrough cancer pain. 

Montreal-based Sante Cannabis, a medical clinic and contract research organization specialized in cannabis-based therapies will conduct the study.

The study will assess the time-to-relief in patients suffering from breakthrough cancer pain. 

Unlike typical medical cannabis, PPP001 is a prescription drug that has a Drug Identification Number (DIN) that makes it much easier to be eligible for insurance coverage.
 
There is a growing movement against the use of opioids due to their highly addictive nature, and many people believe that medical cannabis products and by-products may be able to replace them in some cases.
