InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INM), a leader in the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of rare cannabinoids, today announced the publication of a patent application in North America. The application has broad claims directed to the molecular structure, uses and methods of manufacturing of several cannabinoid analogs. Describing several new cannabinoid-related chemical compounds, the broad patent application, if granted, allows for the creation of several variations of novel cannabinoid compounds, producing a robust library of proprietary new chemical entities (“NCEs”). “We believe rare cannabinoids hold tremendous therapeutic potential that may address a number of unmet medical needs,” said Eric Hsu, SVP, pre-clinical research and development for InMed. “This patent covers the selective modification of naturally occurring cannabinoids to target specific properties for pharmaceutical development. Such patent protection is an important component to ensure long-term commercial exclusivity as we continue to invest in R&D.”
The company has initiated a research collaboration with the Department of Biotechnological and Applied Clinical Sciences, University of L’Aquila (Italy) in the laboratory of Dr. Mauro Maccarrone. An international expert in cannabinoid research and founding member of the European Cannabinoid Research Alliance, Dr. Maccarrone is the 2007 recipient of the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines’ prestigious Ester Fride Award for Basic Research. He is also the 2016 recipient of the International Cannabinoid Research Society’s prestigious Mechoulam Award.
