EPW Curesearch LLC (“EPWC”), a division of Empower, has executed a multi-year agreement with a top 10 global pharmaceutical company (“T10GPC”).

Steven McAuley, Chairman & CEO of Empower Clinics Inc. stated "This contract with one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies is a major milestone that marks Empower’s successful pivot from regional clinics to clinical trials on a global scale on behalf of all our shareholders. Suffice it to say this was a task of epic proportions that would not have been possible without our incredible team at EPW Curesearch - but now that we have arrived and have become a known entity in this massive global clinical trials market, we anticipate further such successes in the near future on our way to building a trusted and significant site management organisation.”

This landmark contract positions Empower Clinics at the forefront of respiratory health research, marking a pivotal moment in the company's expansion into pharmaceutical research and development. The agreement entails comprehensive clinical trials aimed at investigating new treatments for COPD, a progressive lung disease affecting millions worldwide and significantly impacting their quality of life.


The contract involves Phase III human trials, which will be meticulously conducted under the guidance of leading medical experts and researchers. Empower Clinics' state-of-the-art facilities and experienced team are well-equipped to undertake this significant research, ensuring the highest standards of scientific inquiry and patient safety.

This COPD trial is being led by one of our senior and most experienced principal investigators (PI)’s. Together, the Company, our PI and the T10GPC have established preliminary patient recruitment targets of 20-35 patients sourced mainly from the current roster of patients. The recruitment window is anticipated to remain open through mid 2024 with possible extensions allowed, and each patient’s involvement lasting fifty-two (52) weeks plus an additional twenty (20) weeks of follow up.

The T10GPC has put no limits on the maximum allowable patients for our site for the trial, which enables EPWC to recruit additional patients from outside sources such as other medical centers, hospitals and social recruitment channels including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other marketing methods.

Total fees under this COPD Trial agreement are expected to be on the upper end of initial expectations. Overall, the contract terms will allow the Company to bring important new revenue and cash flow.

Empower Clinics' advances into COPD research through this contract is expected to have a substantial impact on the company's growth and presence in the global healthcare market. It also reinforces the company's position as a leader in healthcare innovation and clinical research, further cementing its reputation as a company dedicated to improving patient care and outcomes.

This new venture into COPD research highlights the company's dedication to addressing critical healthcare challenges and improving patient outcomes. COPD, characterized by increasing breathlessness, is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, and the need for effective treatments has never been more urgent.

Steven McAuley added "Partnering with one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies for COPD research is not just an achievement for Empower Clinics but a beacon of hope for the millions of COPD patients globally whose lives could be dramatically improved through our research. We are fully committed to this cause, and our team is motivated by the potential to make a real difference in the world of respiratory healthcare”
