Elevated Lipids are Real World Burden

Elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels pose a significant burden on global health. High levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and triglycerides are key risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, which are the leading cause of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases claim approximately 17.9 million lives annually. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reported that high LDL cholesterol alone was responsible for 2.6 million deaths and 29.7 million disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in 2017. The economic impact is substantial as well, with the American Heart Association estimating costs of $351.2 billion associated with cardiovascular diseases in the United States alone. Investing in research and development to discover innovative interventions and technologies is crucial in addressing this global burden.

Promising Pre-Clinical Results

we are proud to share the impressive results achieved in the multiple pre-clinical trials of our newly developed drug, the CLC, highlighting its remarkable synergy of the APIs and the drug’s efficacy. 

Through rigorous testing on various models and studies, our drug demonstrated exceptional performance in terms of lowering dyslipidemia induced elevated lipids through a unique ability to target specific pathways and deliver potent therapeutic effects.

The synergy observed between the drug’s components enhanced its overall efficacy, maximizing its impact on the intended biological targets in comparison to almost no effect of the materials seperatly. 

These promising preclinical trial results provide a solid foundation for advancing to the next stage of development, instilling confidence in the potential of our drug to deliver significant clinical benefits.

Clinical Research

We are currently in the midst of a phase 2a multicenter double-blind clinical trial aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of our innovative intervention in lowering cholesterol levels. 

This trial involves multiple research centers and ensures a rigorous and unbiased evaluation of our treatment approach. The double-blind design helps eliminate any potential biases and ensures reliable and objective results. 

Simultaneously, we are actively working towards initiating an additional clinical trial specifically targeting the reduction of elevated triglyceride levels. 

By expanding our research efforts, we aim to address the urgent need for effective interventions in managing elevated triglycerides, a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. 

These clinical trials reflect our commitment to advancing scientific knowledge and developing innovative solutions to combat the global burden of dyslipidemia.


CannaLean is currently conducting clinical trials to further demonstrate the the lipid lowering effects of our new drug CLC-01.
