Innocan Pharma Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary, has an exclusive research and license agreement with Yissum Research and Development Company, the commercial arm of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to design, prepare and evaluate hydrogels containing CBD (or other cannabinoids) loaded liposomes.
The study was led by Dr. Ahuva Cern, a senior researcher in the lab of Prof. Chezy Berenholz of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It was based on Innocan's licensed CBD-loaded liposome platform technology (LPT) for injectable CBD solutions.
"This study marks another positive and exciting result in our ongoing injectable-CBD research," said Innocan CEO Iris Bincovich. "These results may open the door to a wide range of exciting therapeutic possibilities, especially in treatment of conditions related to the central nervous system."
