LAWRENCE, Mass., Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boston Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company” or “BTI”) (OTCQB: BTHE), an innovator in the design, development and commercialization of novel therapeutics as an adjunct therapy for diabetes, launches an initial sale of product in Myanmar and test market in China. Newly manufactured Sugardown® chewable tablets have been received in China and are due for shipment and sale to China Mainland in the next two weeks. The shipment of 6,000 units for Myanmar is planned for release and dispatch in the coming week. This may be a substantial contribution of up to $310,000 to support the Company from its Asian Partner.
The platform for these sales takes advantage of “WeChat”, the significant social commerce platform and the cross border bonded warehouse infrastructure unique to China. As the Company develops access to the “WeChat” users, restructuring of clinical development support in the USA will be performed.
CEO, Carl W Rausch, commented on the support for the on-going US based Phase 2 clinical trial in 3 recruiting sites in the USA. “We are revisiting our longer-term goals focusing on our portfolio given the revenue stream from Sugardown® sales in Asia. We have reduced operational costs in the USA to a minimum and have also moved manufacturing capacity under the control of our Asian partner. We are currently launching a new communication network with Microcap Headlines and we will approach a new campaign to bring awareness to the on-going advancement of Boston Therapeutics.”
