Mandate also includes collaboration with local hospital for innovative Surgical and Anti-Aging procedures

WEST CALDWELL, NJ and TORONTO, May 15, 2017 (Accesswire/-) EastGate Biotech Corp. (PinkSheets: ETBI), an emerging pharmaceutical company that develops innovative pharmaceutical products and produces and distributes innovative and healthy nutraceuticals based on natural therapies has announced that it has engaged the services of an agent affiliated with the Philippines pharmaceutical industry to seek out suitable joint venture partners and suppliers in the Philippines.

The agent, Roger Munoz, a principal of i-Power Philippines, a subsidiary of the ICube Group (www.icube.ph) a large holding group mostly for Nippon SME business in the Philippines,  will work together with the company’s own Global Business Development team to act in EastGate’s interests in identifying local partners for the purposes of clinical testing, registration and marketing of the company’s diabetes-cardiovascular related products including its OTC products and the pharmaceutical product pipeline being developed by EastGate (www.EastGateBiotech.com).
