Interview Highlights:

Mr. DiPrima discusses PAOG’s partnership with a Contract Research Organization (CRO) and a formal agreement in the works to advance an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) to ultimately achieve Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for RespRx (one of the two acquisitions executed by PAOG last week) as a COPD treatment.

Based on positive results from an informal trial of RexpRx with 25 COVID-19 patients, PAOG also plans to make Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program (CTAP) application after entering into a CRO agreement.

The COPD treatment, RespRx, is derived from a patented cannabis extraction method – U.S. Patent No. 9,199,960 entitled, “METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING HERBACEOUS PLANT MATERIALS INCLUDING THE CANNABIS PLANT.”

Mr. DiPrima confirms a recently published new PAOG website and the coming publication of PAOG’s financial reports. He further confirms the company now has a revenue base with the acquisition of a cannabis cultivation operation from Puration, Inc. (PURA). Mr. DiPrima concludes the interview with a discussion of why he believes the PPS is undervalued and that he anticipates a PPS correction when the PAOG financials are published.
