InMed Announces Publication in European Journal of Pain

VANCOUVER , July 27, 2017 /CNW/ – InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“InMed” or the “Company”) (CSE: IN; OTCQB: IMLFF), a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the research and development of novel, cannabinoid-based drug therapies, announced today the publication of company-sponsored research in the European Journal of Pain.  The article, titled “Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol decreases masticatory muscle sensitization in female rats through peripheral cannabinoid receptor activation”, presents results from a study co-sponsored by InMed and the MITACS Elevate Postdoctoral Fellowship program. The study was conducted by Dr. Hayes Wong and Prof. Brian Cairns at the University of British Columbia and was co-authored by Dr. Sazzad Hossain , Chief Scientific Officer of InMed.

The study results suggest that peripheral application of cannabinoids targeting the natural endocannabinoid receptor system (in this case, receptor CB1) may provide a valuable approach in treating severe pain.  The model utilized in this study mimics muscle pain reported by sufferers of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) that affect the jaw muscles and joint.  TMD is a chronic pain condition that is difficult to treat with current pain-relieving medications and more commonly affects women than men. 

“Developing a topically-applied product that can provide localized relief of chronic and/or acute severe pain, without central side effects, remains one of the ‘holy grails’ in the field of analgesia”, said Dr. Sazzad Hossain , CSO of InMed.  “This study sets the stage for advanced work in various pain models to explore the role of several cannabinoid compounds, applied as topical agents, to target the CB1 and other pain-related receptors.”

Use of InMed’s proprietary bioinformatics database assessment tool has led to the identification of several individual cannabinoid compounds, or combinations thereof, to specifically address both chronic and acute pain in a topically-applied product.  “InMed’s internal targeting capabilities, linking specific Continue Reading
