InvestorNewsBreaks – IGC Pharma Inc. (NYSE American: IGC) Receives ‘Milestone’ Patent for Drug Formulation Used to Treat Agitation in Alzheimer’s

IGC Pharma (NYSE American: IGC), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, has received a patent from Divisional Direction of Patents, Mexico. The agency issued a Granting Office Action (“GOA”) for IGC Pharma’s treatment of Alzheimer’s disease titled “Method and Composition for Treating CNS Disorder.” According to the announcement, the company believes that the success of the patent in Mexico could “pave the way” for similar approvals in the United States and Europe. The company is currently conducting a phase 2 trial investigating its lead therapeutic candidate, IGC-AD1, as a treatment for agitation in Alzheimer’s disease, one of the most common forms of a central nervous system disorder (“CNS”). IGC-AD1 is a partial CB1 receptor agonist designed with antineuroinflammatory properties to address the underlying neurodegeneration resulting in neuropsychiatric symptoms. In addition to Mexico, the company is seeking patent protection for IGC-AD1 in countries, including the United States and Canada as well as several countries in Europe. The approval from Mexico “marks an important milestone in helping set the stage for potential commercialization,” the company stated in the press release.
