Advanced Cannabis Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: CANN) – Proteo Inc. with its wholly owned subsidiary Proteo Biotech AG, a German corporation, is a clinical stage drug development company focused on the development of anti-inflammatory treatments for rare diseases with significant unmet needs.
Proteo’s lead product Elafin is a copy of a naturally occurring human anti-inflammatory protein and promises an excellent therapeutic risk-benefit profile. It is a potent inactivator of tissue destroying neutrophil elastase and proteinase-3, and was well tolerated in three randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical studies. Elafin’s ability to block tissue destroying proteases makes it a promising drug candidate for the prevention and treatment of tissue damage occurring in the course of major surgery, pulmonary diseases and severe reperfusion injury in organ transplantation.
Elafin is under clinical development for prophylactic treatment of acute postoperative complications, with focus on the prevention of postoperative inflammatory complications in the surgical therapy of esophageal cancer. Its potential for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension and lung diseases is currently evaluated in preclinical models.
Elafin has obtained orphan drug designations for the treatment of complications of esophageal cancer surgery as well as for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension in the United States and the European Union.
Proteo intends to establish international strategic partnerships for the development, manufacturing and marketing of Elafin.

The company’s BST device treats wounds via electrical stimulation, resulting in accelerated wound healing by imitating the natural electrical current that occurs in injured skin on the human body. Its BST device stimulates renewed blood flow and oxygen in order to induce local cell regeneration and therefore promote wound healing.

Its BST Device, which has already received the Communaute Europeenne (“CE”) mark and is approved to be sold in the EU market, is designed to specifically address many of the limitations associated with other invasive and non-invasive wound care devices to treat chronic wounds – primarily Stage III and Stage IV ulcers, which it believes comprise about 11% and 7% of all chronic wounds, respectively, and severe Stage II wounds.
