BTV News Alert: InMed Advances a Rare Cannabinoid that Could Treat Skin & Ocular Diseases
InMed is the first to advance a rare cannabinoid to human clinical trials
InMed Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company. They specialize in the discovery and development of novel, cannabinoid-based therapeutics for the treatment of diseases with high unmet medical need.
InMed is a leader in the therapeutic development of cannabinol (CBN). Cannabinol is a rare cannabinoid with the potential to treat skin and ocular diseases. They are also the first to advance a cannabinol therapeutic product into human clinical trials. “CBN is distinctly different from THC and CBD. It acts differently in the human body making specific advantages when treating different diseases”, says President & CEO Eric Adams. Inmed will be establishing the safety profile of CBN for use in humans.
Further, InMed employs a highly scientific approach to designing and developing medicines, which will help unlock the full potential of cannabinoid pharmaceuticals. One proprietary technology is its bioinformatics platform. This uses a computer-based drug candidate selection process to reach high-probability conclusions from massive, publicly available databases together with an internal library of cannabinoid drug information.
InMed is also developing a robust, high-yield, microbial-based biosynthesis process. This is designed to enable the manufacturing of the multitude of cannabinoids (100+) found from natural sources.
As a result of these enabling, proprietary technologies, InMed has discovered a diverse pipeline of drug candidates across a spectrum of diseases with high unmet medical needs. These are currently at various stages of preclinical development.
