InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INM) recently filed a Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”) application, which specifies a rare cannabinoid (new to InMed’s portfolio) that may inhibit or slow the progression of neurogenerative diseases – such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and others – by providing protection in a population of affected neurons. Furthermore, the application demonstrates the cannabinoid can also be used to promote neurite outgrowth, signifying the potential to enhance neuronal function. According to InMed’s Senior VP Pre-Clinical Research & Development Dr. Eric Hsu, who is quoted in a recent article, “This PCT patent application advances our strategy directed towards researching and developing rare cannabinoids as potential pharmaceutical therapeutics for diseases with high unmet medical needs.” Neurogenerative diseases affect millions of patients globally and are expected to affect millions more in the future; they are also projected to increase the individual, social and financial burden of taking care of patients. These factors demonstrate that finding treatments and cures is a matter of growing urgency, and “InMed’s patent application is, therefore, a promising start.”
