Hyalolex and Alzheimer’s:
Alzheimer’s patients suffer from a host of symptoms including anxiety, agitation, and sleep disorders. The hallmarks of Alzheimer’s include plaques, tangles, and dementia. Hyalolex, IGC’s product to treat Alzheimer’s, has been shown to decrease plaques and tangles, control anxiety, and help with sleep disorders thorough a patent-pending pathway.  We expect to bring Hyalolex to market in early 2018, with the hope of bringing much needed relief to Alzheimer’s patients.

IGC has a two-part strategy for commercializing Hyalolex: the FDA long process and the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), a short path which will allow IGC to distribute Hyalolex through licensed medical cannabis dispensaries in key markets of the U.S., starting with dispensaries in Washington, D.C. and Maryland.

About IGC:
IGC is engaged in the development of cannabis based combination therapies to treat Alzheimer’s, pain, nausea, eating disorders, several end points of Parkinson’s, and epilepsy in dogs and cats. IGC has assembled a portfolio of patent filings and four lead product candidates addressing these conditions. The company is based in Maryland, USA.
