Brian Murphy, M.D., M.B.A., Nemus CEO and Chief Medical Officer commented, CBD has long been associated with the neuroprotective attributes of the cannabinoid family of molecules, but its bioavailability and pharmacokinetics can be less than optimal with oral administration. Nemus, through its relationship with the University of Mississippi, is focused on developing second- and third-generation cannabinoid molecules that can be customized to specific disease states. We believe NB2222 supplements our cannabinoid-based ophthalmology platform and has the potential to address diseases in multiple chambers of the eye. Cannabinoid molecules, as a class, hold great potential and we are working with Nemus to create re-engineered versions of those molecules to enhance the therapeutic profile of these compounds, stated Dr. Mahmoud ElSohly, professor at the National Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi . Our shared vision is to further grow the library of cannabinoids currently being considered as therapeutic targets. Historically, CBD has shown promise as both an anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective agent in in vivo model systems of eye disease, stated Soumyajit Majumdar, PhD, Professor of Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery and Associate Dean for Research in the School of Pharmacy at the university and lead scientist of the ophthalmology program. Potential uses for this analog of CBD include uveitis and dry eye syndrome in the anterior compartment of the eye, and diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration in the posterior compartment. We look forward to further formulation refinement of this molecule into a form that is optimized for development as a commercialized drug. With an evolving portfolio of proprietary cannabinoid-based candidates, Nemus intends to seek pharmaceutical corporate partners to co-develop these assets, stated Dr. Murphy. Our portfolio of candidates is designed to leverage the potential pleiotropic benefits of cannabinoids across a variety of conditions, including: Drug Candidate Ocular Targets: uveitis, dry eye syndrome, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy Research We look forward to presenting this collection of data, as well as our anti-infective platform, at upcoming scientific meetings in 2017.
