InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:INM), a leader in pharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing of rare cannabinoids and cannabinoid analogues, has unveiled a new program for combating neurodegenerative diseases (“INM-900 series”). The program will focus on studying the effects of cannabinoid analogues in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Prior to this announcement, InMed had identified potential cannabinoid analogs that showed promising effects, particularly in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases; the new program will focus on two main analogues to conduct studies using live models to select the most suitable candidate for clinical studies. The company anticipates that the early readout of preclinical efficacy will be available by the second quarter of Q2 2023. Dr. Ujendra Kumar of the University of British Columbia (“UBC”) received a grant from the Council of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Canada (“NSERC”) Alliance to lead the research, with InMed named industry partner. The collaborative project is entitled “Pharmacological characterization of phytocannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system”. “We are pleased that our efforts have led to the identification of two cannabinoid analog candidates to transition to. live studies,” Eric Hsu, PhD, senior vice president of preclinical research and development at InMed Pharmaceuticals, said in the press release. “Our team will continue this important research in neurodegenerative diseases thanks to the NSERC Alliance grant. Our early studies show promising neuroprotective effects as well as neurite outgrowth, signifying the potential for improved neuronal function that may be important in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This program, in conjunction with the work we do in glaucoma, increases our focus and expands our pipeline in the area of neuroprotection. »
