India Globalization Capital (NYSE American: IGC) is developing a cannabis-based investigational drug that is being tested for the first time ever on humans in an FDA-approved study. This is groundbreaking work that established its commitment as a pioneer in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, given there are no currently FDA-approved drugs to treat Alzheimer’s patients. “The company is developing its proprietary treatment, IGC-AD1, hoping to provide relief to the 55 million people worldwide struggling with agitation in dementia that results from Alzheimer’s. IGC is focused on revolutionizing the treatment of Alzheimer’s with its game-changing drug candidate. In phase 1 studies, IGC-AD1 shows potential to safely reduce the debilitating symptoms that impact millions of Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers. Featuring a low dose of THC, the treatment is the first natural cannabis-based investigational drug being tested in human FDA trials to treat Alzheimer’s patients; it provides medical benefits without psychoactive effects. ‘As millions of Alzheimer’s patients continue to suffer from agitation, anxiety and depression, phase 2 clinical trials bring hope for a treatment,’ the company reports.”
