Pre-clinical stage biopharmaceutical company InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: IMLFF) (CSE: IN) this morning announced the filing of a provisional patent application in the United States for INM-085 as a cannabinoid-based topical therapy for glaucoma. The company notes that this move marks an important step toward providing intellectual and commercial protection for INM-085. If approved, INM-085 could address an expansive global market that’s currently valued in excess of $5 billion. Per this morning’s update, glaucoma is currently the second-leading cause of blindness, driven by risk factors such as increased pressure in the eye, a family history of the condition, migraines, high blood pressure and obesity. With INM-085, InMed is seeking to reduce intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma through a single daily eye drop administered immediately prior to the patient’s bedtime. The company also intends to initiate discussions with potential partners regarding its proprietary delivery system for ophthalmic drugs, which it anticipates could play a key role in reducing the high rates of non-adherence that are often present with currently-approved glaucoma therapies.
