ROYAL CANIN®: Pets Need Proper Diet Post Neutering

gbafNews28

Potential weight gain poses many underlying health risks

 

KUALA
LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – 10 February 2021 – It
is crucial for the neutered pet cats to be fed a specific diet, and ROYAL
CANIN® FHN Sterilised — is catered to control the body weight of felines. It helps
to limit the risk of excess weight gain as it contains moderate levels of fat
and adequate daily rations.

 

According
to Dr Dylan Choy, Royal Canin Malaysia Scientific Communication Manager,
neutering your pets is important to keep control of the stray population in
your neighbourhood, and also for health benefits.

 

“Numerous
studies have proven that neutered cats are healthier and have a longer lifespan
as neutering cats helps prevent uterine infections and mammary gland tumours
while also decreasing the risk of testicular cancer and prostrate problems in
male cats,” said Dr Dylan Choy.

 

Neutering
cats can also reduce the risk of contracting the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
(FIV) which is spread through saliva and blood when they fight and bite each
other. Similarly, more lethal Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) can also be
transmitted through saliva or nasal secretions. The retrovirus, if not fought
off by your furkid’s immune system may result in diseases that could be fatal.

 

The
daily energy requirements reduce post-neutering and the lack of proper
nutrition or control could lead to obesity in felines that in turn, could
result in other issues like joint problems, urinary tract issues and an
increased risk of contracting diabetes. There is also a risk of digestive
problems due to inactivity and excessive self-grooming habits that are usually
found in sedentary or indoor cats.

 

“The
biggest complication that may arise is the health risks stemming from the
potential weight gain of your neutered cat. It is normal for a cat’s food
intake to increase within 48 hours of the sterilisation process,” she
adds.

 

ROYAL
CANIN® FHN Sterilised supports a healthy urinary system by providing an
adequate mineral balance thus minimising the risk of developing urinary stones.
Besides, ROYAL CANIN® FHN Sterilised is packed with high-protein which is
essential to maintain muscle mass. It also contains L-Carnitine which is
involved in fat metabolism.

Voluntary Announcement: IND Approval Received for A Phase III Clinical Trial of OT-101 in the United States

gbafNews28

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 22 February 2021 – This announcement is made by Ocumension Therapeutics (the “Company“, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group“) on a voluntary basis to keep the shareholders of the Company and potential investors informed of the latest business updates of the Group.

The board of directors of the Company (the “Board“) is pleased to announce that an investigational new drug (“IND“) approval for initiating a multi-regional phase III clinical trial (the “Phase III MRCT“) in the United States for OT-101, a self developed product of the Group, has been received from the United States Food and Drug Administration in February 2021. The Company plans to file IND applications with the regulatory authorities in both China and Europe Union in 2021 and initiate the Phase III MRCT of OT-101 in these regions accordingly.

OT-101 is a low-concentration atropine 0.01% eye drop developed by the Group to retard, or slow down, the progression of myopia in children and adolescents. The instability of low-concentration atropine solutions has long been a technical barrier for its commercialization. The Group developed a storage and delivery system to address low-concentration atropine solution’s instability, and also conducted several rounds of tests on the system’s reliability, closure integrity and sterility conditions.

Cautionary Statement required by Rule 18A.05 of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited: The Company cannot guarantee that it will ultimately commercialize OT-101 successfully. Shareholders of the Company and potential investors are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the shares of the Company.
