Science is at the heart of everything we do. Scientific publications and clinical studies inform and drive our product development process, from concept to market access.
The safety of SKF7™ has been demonstrated by OECD- and USFDA-compliant studies:
Pre- Clinical Studies:
- Genotoxicology – completed
- In-vivo toxicology – completed
- In-vivo and in-vitro efficacy studies – completed
- Pharmacokinetic studies – completed
- Pharmacodynamic studies – completed
Pre-clinical research shows that SKF7™ inhibits visceral fat accumulation in high-fat diet rodents and exhibited anti-obesity effects. Case studies in humans reported normalization of blood glucose levels and reduction in total cholesterol, triglyceride levels and waist circumferences.
We have also launched a multi-centre Phase 2 Dose-Ranging A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Study Of SKF7™ For Anti-Obesity in 11 healthcare facilities across Malaysia, Indonesia and India.
This study involves 312 subjects and is part of the process in obtaining approval for SKF7™ to be classified and marketed as a botanical drug.
Pre-clinical studies are also ongoing with SKF7™ for the treatment of diabetes mellitus, cancer, and Covid-19.
Each one of Medika Natura’s products is put through a stringent end-to-end quality control mechanism using our proprietary technology platform, PhytoProfile™, to ensure they maintain consistent safety, quality and efficacy standards.
