Filipino Inventors and Scientists Richard Nixon Gomez and his son Rigel Gomez win 3 GOLD Awards for their invention entries in the E-NNOVATE International Invention & Innovation Summit, held on May 16-18, 2024 at Krakow, Poland.
Their inventions are based on Technical Papers submitted and supported by actual inventions manufactured by BauerTek Farmaceutical Technologies.




  1. Black Garlic (Cytotoxic Activity of Phytochemicals from Black Garlic)
  2. CanCur (PhytoCannabinoids to Enhance ECS Receptors)
  3. PiCur (The world’s most powerful natural antioxidant)

Black Garlic is in collaboration with Mariano Marcos State University headed by Dr. Shirley Agrupis, its University President. It is their brainchild. Inventors Richard and Rigel Gomez assisted in its conversion from a research experiment into a full-blown commercial product. Black Garlic is intended to help patients with nerve disorders as well as those with certain forms of cancer.

CanCur is a highly innovative medical product. It stems from the concept of combining several herbs to form a synergy. The medical properties of THC and CBD (isolated extracts from Cannabis) are enhanced and balanced when combined with Curcumin and Piperine. They form an “entourage effect”, achieving better results with lower doses. CanCur is intended to help patients with epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, anxiety, depression, sleep disorder, and for pain management.

PiCur is the world’s most powerful natural antioxidant. It helps stop angio-genesis around the tumor cells and helps induce apoptosis of tumor cells. PiCur has been used by over a hundred thousand patients in the Philippines and nearby countries. Its uses included treatment for breast cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer, and many other common illnesses.

The Philippine Team bested 200+ entries from 25 countries competing for 20 categories. All 3 GOLD awards garnered by the Philippines belong to the PHARMA category. Truly, the Philippines can do more than just repacking and re-labelling for international pharma companies—the Philippines can create and manufacture our own pharmaceutical products that can be at par with, or even better, than other countries.

E-NNOVATE is an annual event supported by the Polish Government in partnership with the International Federation of Inventors Associations. It aims to promote an ecosystem of like-minded people willing to create a great impact in the innovation space.

This year’s event featured 200+ entries from 25 countries, competing in 20 categories, such as: Agriculture and Aquaculture, Energy, Drones and UAV, Pharma, Transport and Logistics, Chemistry, Medicine, Biotechnology and Medical Devices, Nanotechnology, Environment, Healthcare/Fitness, Food Technology, Information Technology, Safety/Security/Protection, Young Inventors, Industry 4.0, Electronics/Robotics/IoT, Education, Zero Waste Technologies, Home and Lifestyle, and Aerospace/Space Technology and Rockets.


Philippine made Cannabis derived medical product called CANCUR wins Pharma award in the E-NNOVATE International Innovation Summit held on May 16-17 in Krakow, Poland.
CANCUR is made by Filipino Inventors and Scientists Richard and his son Rigel Gomez. It highlights the use of isolated or purified THC, CBD and with synergistic effects derived from Curcumin and Piperine. This internation recognition is evidence that the Philippines has the technology and capability to do cannabis-derived medicine and is considered a standout on the international community.
Medical Cannabis is approved in over 60 countries, including Poland. The Philippines is expected to legalize it towards end of 2024.
