VIDEO – Cardiol Therapeutics $CRDL Sees Accelerated Growth with NASDAQ Uplisting & Continued COVID-19 Threat $LXRX $MESO $HGEN $TYNA

Posted by AGORACOM-AB at 12:15 PM on Monday, August 16th, 2021

Biotech companies, by their very nature, can often be difficult to understand for investors… but in order to understand Cardiol, all you have to know is that the firm is developing therapies for heart disease and heart failure through cannabidiols.  

Cardiol Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing innovative anti-inflammatory therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease (heart/blood vessels).

  • The company has received approval from the U.S. FDA to commence a Phase II/III, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial investigating the efficacy and safety of its lead clinical product, CardiolRx™.
  • CardiolRx™ is an ultra-pure, high concentration cannabidiol oral formulation that is pharmaceutically producedmanufactured under cGMP and THC free. (less than 10 ppm)

Cardiol is also planning a Phase II international trial of CardiolRx™ in acute myocarditis, a condition caused by inflammation in heart tissue, most common cause of sudden cardiac death in people under 35.

This week, the company passed another major milestone, moving from the OTC Markets to a U.S. listing on NASDAQ, under the symbol $CRDL – the same as its TSX symbol.

And with the COVID-19 Delta Variant running rampant through North America, Cardiol’s work has become more important than ever.

We sat down with David Elsley, Cardiol Therapeutics’ President & CEO, to discuss the uplisting…

The company gained a huge boost this month closing its “bought deal” short form prospectus offering for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $22m. This came after upsizing from the previously announced $15m offering; and after receiving more than $10m earlier this year from the exercise of warrants and stock options.

So, the company now sits on an enviable war chest. And it has ambitious plans for the future.

  • Announced today a successful manufacturing demonstration of liposome platform technology (“LPT“) CBD-loaded Liposomes under aseptic conditions, together with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
  • This is an important milestone in the production process of CBD-loaded Liposomes, as it now permits the demonstration of animal studies and, at a later date, human clinical studies ─ both of which bring the product closer to the marketplace.

Herzliya, Israel and Calgary, Alberta–(January 22, 2021) –  Innocan Pharma Corporation (CSE: INNO) (FSE: IP4) (OTC PINK: INNPF) (the “Company” or “Innocan“), is pleased to announce today a successful manufacturing demonstration of liposome platform technology (“LPT“) CBD-loaded Liposomes under aseptic conditions, together with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

This is an important milestone in the production process of CBD-loaded Liposomes, as it now permits the demonstration of animal studies and, at a later date, human clinical studies ─ both of which bring the product closer to the marketplace.

This achievement supports studies on small and large animals, examining the therapeutic efficacy of Innocan’s CBD-loaded LPT in relevant diseases. These studies follow the results of previous studies that demonstrated the prolonged release of cannabidiol into the blood of mice and rats for at least three weeks after a single injection.

The previous study, led by Dr. Ahuva Cern, Senior Researcher in the laboratory of Professor Barenholz at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, found significant amounts of CBD in the blood and muscles of mice up to 21 days after a single intramuscular injection of CBD using the LPT. The same findings were also demonstrated in rats.

  • Announced the successful completion of a large-scale production of exosomes
  • Innocan’s CBD Loaded Exosome (CLX) Therapy project led by Prof. Offen demonstrates the capability of having reliable large-scale production of exosomes and is an important milestone in the CLX Therapy development process.
  • Innocan managed to perform the production of trillions of exosomes in a short period of time in a 3-dimensional bioreactor, and that may lead to economic large scale exosome production for the CLX.
  • This achievement is expected to pave the way for larger tests and studies.

Herzliya, Israel and Calgary, Alberta–(January 14, 2021) – Innocan Pharma Corporation (CSE: INNO) (FSE: IP4) (OTC Pink: INNPF) (the “Company” or “Innocan“), is pleased to announce the successful completion of a large-scale production of exosomes. Innocan’s CBD Loaded Exosome (CLX) Therapy project led by Prof. Offen demonstrates the capability of having reliable large-scale production of exosomes and is an important milestone in the CLX Therapy development process. Innocan managed to perform the production of trillions of exosomes in a short period of time in a 3-dimensional bioreactor, and that may lead to economic large scale exosome production for the CLX. This achievement is expected to pave the way for larger tests and studies.

“Innocan is now one of a few public companies in the exosome’s science field. Although we are still in the development stage of the CLX platform, large scale exosome production capabilities are a significant proof of advantage and capability for Innocan, as part of the path to commercialization,” said Iris Bincovich, founder and CEO of Innocan.

Innocan Pharma together with Tel Aviv University, Prof. Offen and his team, are developing a new revolutionary cell therapy – based technology, loaded with CBD (Cannabidiol), designed to target coronavirus infected lung cells and central nervous system diseases. The CLX Therapy holds the potential to provide a highly synergistic effect of anti-inflammatory properties and help in the recovery of infected lung cells. This product is planned to act as a “guided missile” to the infected lungs, combining the cell healing properties of exosomes and the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD.

How Cannabis-Based Therapeutics Could Help Fight #COVID Inflammation – SPONSOR: Innocan Pharma $INNO.ca $IN.ca $AXIM $LABS $CRDL.ca $TBP.ca

  • InnoCan Pharma and Tel Aviv University are collaborating to explore the potential for CBD-loaded exosomes (minute extracellular particles that mediate intracellular communication, including via innate and adaptive immune responses)
  • The group plans to use these loaded exosomes to target and facilitate recovery of COVID-19–damaged lung cells
  • From a broader perspective, the prospects for harnessing cannabinoids for immune modulation will be more thoroughly explored in a special issue of Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research

By: Liz Scherer

Editor’s note: Find the latest COVID-19 news and guidance in Medscape’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

Plagued by false starts, a few dashed hopes, but with perhaps a glimmer of light on the horizon, the race to find an effective treatment for COVID-19 continues. At last count, more than 300 treatments and 200 vaccines were in preclinical or clinical development (not to mention the numerous existing agents that are being evaluated for repurposing).

There is also a renewed interest in cannabinoid therapeutics — in particular, the nonpsychoactive agent cannabidiol (CBD) and the prospect of its modulating inflammatory and other disease-associated clinical indices, including SARS-CoV-2–induced viral load, hyperinflammation, the cytokine storm, and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Long hobbled by regulatory, political, and financial barriers, CBD’s potential ability to knock back COVID-19–related inflammation might just open doors that have been closed for years to CBD researchers.

Why CBD and Why Now?

CBD and the resulting therapeutics have been plagued by a complicated association with recreational cannabis use. It’s been just 2 years since CBD-based therapeutics moved into mainstream medicine — the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Epidiolex oral solution for the treatment of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome, and in August, the FDA approved it for tuberous sclerosis complex.

CBD’s mechanism of action has not been fully elucidated, but on the basis of its role in immune responses — well described in research spanning more than two decades — it’s not surprising that cannabinoid researchers have thrown their hats into the COVID-19 drug development ring.

The anti-inflammatory potential of CBD is substantial and appears to be related to the fact that it shares 20 protein targets common to inflammation-related pathways, Jenny Wilkerson, PhD, research assistant professor at the University of Florida School of Pharmacy, Gainesville, Florida, explained to Medscape Medical News.

Among the various trials that are currently recruiting or are underway is one that is slated for completion this fall. CANDIDATE (Cannabidiol for COVID-19 Patients With Mild-to-Moderate COVID-19) is a randomized, controlled, double-blind study led by Brazilian researchers at the University of Sao Paulo. The study, which began recruitment this past August, enrolled 100 patients, 50 in the active treatment group (who received capsulated CBD 300 mg daily for 14 days plus pharmacologic therapy [antipyretics] and clinical measures) and 50 who received placebo.

Could #Cannabis Eliminate The High-Cost And High-Stakes Of Current #Psoriasis Medicines? SPONSOR: Innocan Pharma $INNO.ca $IN.ca $AXIM $LABS $CRDL.ca $TBP.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:04 PM on Thursday, October 29th, 2020

SPONSOR: Innocan Pharma Corporation (INNO:CSE) (IP4:FSE) Innocan has 3 fully operating divisions to address the market for Cannabis products.  As a Cannabis investor, why limit yourself to a Company with just one specialty, when Innocan offers you exposure to both the exploding world of cannabis pharma, as well as, a portfolio of patent-pending and launch ready consumer health products. In addition, the company filed an international patent application for a novel cannabis-based psoriasis treatment. This patent application makes claim of a topical pharmaceutical composition used to treat the symptoms of itching and inflammation associated with psoriasis.

Could Cannabis Eliminate The High-Cost And High-Stakes Of Current Psoriasis Medicines?

  • Often triggered by stress, new studies are showing that psoriasis can be better managed by diet, oral health, and even cannabidiol.
  • The National Psoriasis Foundation shared information on a study from the Journal of Dermatological Science showcasing that, “CBD may offer therapeutic value for psoriasis by slowing the overgrowth of certain skin cells.” 
  • A 2016 study published in the journal Current Clinical Pharmacology found similar results, citing that cannabinoids may be a positive addition to treatment for psoriasis.
  • Even better, a 2018 study did a sweeping review of prior research on cannabis’ role within dermatology and found, “cannabinoids have shown some initial promise as a therapy for a variety of skin diseases.” Their only concern was a lack of research in clinical trials, due to the Schedule 1 classification of the drug.

The National Psoriasis Foundation states that upwards of 8 million people have the auto-immune skin disorder. Often accompanied by arthritis, psoriasis not only causes scaling of the skin, but complications to fingernails as well. 

Affecting everyone from children to adults, psoriasis can lead to anxiety and depression, as individuals with the skin disorder are often afraid of being ridiculed. Usually treated with Humira and Enbrel, psoriasis comes with a shocking price tag and complications that are often difficult to ignore. 

A 2014 study published in the journal Drugs in Context found that Humira had a price tag upwards of $39,000, while Enbrel’s annual cost was around $46,000. Stelara, the most expensive drug, was found to cost over $53,000. As TNF blockers, while medications like Humira help against psoriasis, they can lower the body’s ability to fight infections and cause serious side effects.

Even more interesting, a September 2019 study in London found that, “A number of medications commonly prescribed by rheumatologists may interact with cannabidiol oil” (CBD oil). The most affected medicines appear to be corticosteroids (including hydrocortisone and prednisolone) since CBD, “is a potent inhibitor of CYP3A.” Put plainly, CBD may block the effects of the other medicine.

Can CBD alone help psoriasis? 

Often triggered by stress, new studies are showing that psoriasis can be better managed by diet, oral health, and even cannabidiol. The National Psoriasis Foundation shared information on a study from the Journal of Dermatological Science showcasing that, “CBD may offer therapeutic value for psoriasis by slowing the overgrowth of certain skin cells.” 

A 2016 study published in the journal Current Clinical Pharmacology found similar results, citing that cannabinoids may be a positive addition to treatment for psoriasis. Even better, a 2018 study did a sweeping review of prior research on cannabis’ role within dermatology and found, “cannabinoids have shown some initial promise as a therapy for a variety of skin diseases.” Their only concern was a lack of research in clinical trials, due to the Schedule 1 classification of the drug.  

While CBD and cannabis offer pain relief and psoriasis is often accompanied by rheumatoid arthritis, each individual must discuss the addition of any new medicine (including CBD and cannabis) with their care team. With new clinical trials for cannabinoids and psoriasis recruiting even now, promising cures may be on the horizon.

  • Demonstrated that the non-psychoactive reagent in cannabis (CBD) can significantly reduce the lung damage induced by cytokine storms

Herzliya, Israel and Calgary, Alberta–(October 23, 2020) – Innocan Pharma Corporation (CSE: INNO) (FSE: IP4) (the “Company” or “Innocan“), is pleased to announce the recent publication of two scientific articles supporting Innocan’s approach of using CBD-Loaded Exosomes (CLX) for the treatment of COVID-19. The first paper entitled, “Potential application of mesenchymal stem cells and their exosomes in lung injury: an emerging therapeutic option for COVID-19 patients” published in the Journal of Stem Cell Research & Therapy on October 15, 2020 outlined that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and their exosomes have potential therapeutic functions in the handling of COVID-19. Specifically, the study demonstrated that exosomes have the ability to enhance alveolar fluid clearance and promote epithelial and endothelial recovery through secretion of protective factors.

The second paper entitled, “Cannabidiol (CBD) modulation of apelin in acute respiratory distress syndrome” published in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine on October 15, 2020, demonstrated that the non-psychoactive reagent in cannabis (CBD) can significantly reduce the lung damage induced by cytokine storms (which is a physiological reaction in humans and other animals in which the innate immune system causes an uncontrolled and excessive release of pro-inflammatory signaling molecules called cytokines) caused by COVID-19.

Innocan Israel, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, together with Tel Aviv University Prof. Daniel Offen and his team, are developing a revolutionary combined therapy using MSC-driven Exosome-based loaded with CBD. The new combination is designed to target COVID-19 and neurodegenerative diseases.

Through their potential synergistic anti-inflammatory effect, CBD-Loaded Exosomes hold the potential of helping the body fight against the COVID-19 virus’s direct damage and its cytokine storm. This product is planned to act as a “guided missile” to the infected tissues, as the Exosomes migrate to Inflamed zones that are carrying CBD.

Prof. Offen added: “The recent publications which support our unique approach is exciting. The potential synergistic effect of CBD and Exosomes is of great potential for COVID-19 and other diseases known for local inflammation that causes destruction. We are doing our best efforts to accelerate the development and to potentially offer a new approach for the COVID-19 treatment”.
