MONTREAL RESEARCH UPDATE JULY 2022
Clinical Trial for CRPS
TO ALL CANADIAN PATIENTS:
We applied for a clinical trial at Health Canada and received a No Objection letter. (NOL)
The letter was to test our pain mixture in the treatment of CRPS. We received the NOL letter to go into phase 2 trials.
We will recruit 40 patients suffering from CRPS based on the Budapest Criteria.
The treatment will be through a nasal application of mixture of 5 medications which have an additive effect on pain and should be applied as a nasal spray or a local
analgesic cream. The preliminary data on patients treated the last time, have convinced us that our mixture has a great effect on CRPS.
We expect that after a nasal application for a month, only the cream would be required.
We will be able to include patients from any province in Canada.
As CRPS is a rare disease, we expect that Health Canada will allow commercialization after a phase 2 trial, if the results of this research are convincing.
It will be a pleasure to treat patients.

Thank you so much for organising the event today. It was very informative for me to be able to talk to others with CRPS and to hear the speakers. I learned a lot about cannabis and the use of it today. H.M.
My family really learned a lot about CRPS and it meant a lot to me to be able to connect with others that are going through the same thing at the conference yesterday. I would love to go to more of these events in the future hopefully when I am better.Thank you for all you do, I wish you many blessings, C. L.
Helen, I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how great the conference was Saturday. The speakers were all informative and I am a HUGE fan now of Tara Packham. Imagine a medical model that involves the needs and wishes of the patient in the total care - wow, we have come a long way in our journey!!! J.B.
My only feedback to you re: Saturday was the chairs were so very hard. Perhaps in future we could have more "official" stretch breaks. I am confident to just stand up when I need to but I know a few newer members said to me they wished they had done so but did not feel comfortable to interrupt the talks". J.B.
The three speakers were excellent and provided a huge amount of knowledge.They patiently answered all of our questions. We thank Dr Arash for his cannabis knowledge and easy, comprehensive approach.We thank Dr. Tara Packham PhD, for explaining CRPS so well and telling us about glia cells and nerves.We thank our Dr. D.L. Shulman, for his words on hope for the future. H.S.

UPDATE: September 5, 2018.
The sunny day provided a good backdrop for a beautiful walk at Point Pleasant Park. The walk around was 3.1 km. The group was very enthusiastic and many walkers went around 3 times.
The first prize, a tour around Nova Scotia by private plane, was given to Tatum, an 11 year old girl with CRPS. Second prize was a prize package from Tim Hortons and the Pita Pit provided 3rd prize.
We thank Kristen Cameron and her team for the hard work they did to make the WALK a success.
