InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INM), a leader in the pharmaceutical research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of rare cannabinoids, today announced that results from a neurodegenerative disease study were presented in a scientific poster at the Canadian Neuroscience Meeting in Montreal from May 28-31, 2023. The InMed sponsored research demonstrated the ability of a specific rare cannabinoid (“pCBx”) in InMed’s 900 Series library of potential candidates that reduces amyloid toxicity and tau protein expression while enhancing neuronal cell growth and neuritogenesis markers in vitro. These are all considered to be important targets in the potential treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The research was conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Ujendra Kumar and Dr. Rishi Somvanshi of the faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia. Studies have shown that cannabinoids, via their endocannabinoid receptors (“CB1R” and “CB2R”) that naturally occur in the human body and brain, reduce amyloid-beta (“Aβ”) toxicity, decrease p-tau protein expression and provide neurite outgrowth, thus improving neuronal viability and function.
