India Globalization Capital (NYSE American: IGC), in a historic first, has begun phase 2 clinical trials evaluating its flagship drug candidate, IGC-AD1, for the treatment of agitation in dementia from Alzheimer’s disease. “Company officials noted that, to their knowledge, this is the first natural low-dose THC-based compound to enter human trials for the treatment of symptoms such as agitation in dementia from Alzheimer’s disease. Currently there is no FDA-approved medication to treat agitation in Alzheimer’s,” reads a recent article. The piece quotes IGC CEO Ram Mukunda, who states, “We believe IGC-AD1 has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of the symptoms (agitation) of Alzheimer’s disease as the only natural low-dose THC-based formulation candidate currently undergoing FDA testing. Approximately 8 million people are affected by Alzheimer’s in North America and over 55 million worldwide. We believe that the diverse population we have selected for this study will allow us to accurately look at both the impact of variations of the gene CYP2C9 that metabolizes THC, as well as the APOE e4 a gene that increases the risk of developing Alzheimer’s. This data will help us to further understand the metabolism of IGC-AD1 for a diverse population, which is important in a disease that has a global impact like Alzheimer’s. Through these and further trials, we look forward to establishing IGC-AD1’s efficacy in treating the symptoms related to Alzheimer’s disease.”
