China Sky One Medical (NSDQ: CSKI) has begun exporting its Pain Relief patch to Canada. Because the product is based on a traditional Chinese herbal formulation, it did not have to undergo clinical trials before going on sale. The company said the first order was for 40,000 patches, which are now available in Vancouver. Eventually, China Sky One intends to broaden its distribution of the product throughout North America.

According to the company’s website, the pain relief patch is indicated for “rheumatism, rheumatoid, hyperosteogeny, scapulohumeral periarthritis and cervical spondylopathy.” Elsewhere, the product is described as offering relief from fever, headache, dysentery of a heat type, diarrhea and stiffness and pain in the neck caused by hypertension.

Patch products are the biggest contributors to the company’s revenues. They provided almost one-third of China Sky One’s second quarter sales of $32 million. The company’s biggest seller is a weight loss patch.

Disclosure: none.
