Similar to many of the best pharmaceuticals available today, Australis Pharma’s lead compound was derived from a natural origin. Over 150 years ago, beekeepers transported Ligurian honeybees to Australia’s isolated Kangaroo Island. Here is where the bees produce propolis from which our compound was discovered. The bees actually collect the compound from the resin of the native sedge grass which synthesizes the compound as a defense mechanism to survive the environment and ward off foraging kangaroos and wallabies.

Foundational studies led to the the discovery of these compounds and their therapeutic potential against cancer and many other diseases. This further led to the eventual patent and intellectual property protection of thousands of derivative chemical entities at Australis Pharma’s disposal.
