Pivot Pharmaceuticals has acquired the global rights for four proprietary drug delivery technologies. These technologies are for the delivery and commercialization of cannabinoid-, cannabidiol- and tetrahydrocannabinol-based products.
Researchers are continually working to design ways to breach the blood brain barrier. However, as an article in life sciences magazine The Scientist reported, “… researchers first have to understand it.” The article notes that researchers are working on techniques to bypass or sneak past the guardian of the central nervous system so they can better treat neurological disease.
Pivot Pharmaceuticals recently signed an option agreement with IP Med Inc. to acquire an exclusive global license for Trivair™ Nasal and Pulmonary Breath-Propelled Drug Delivery Systems™ for the delivery of Pivot’s Ready-To-Infuse-Cannabis (RTIC) cannabinoid products (http://cnw.fm/8EzbT). The TriVair™ Nasal device uses the body’s natural breath to drive a medication deep into the nasal cavity to targeted sites, bypassing the blood brain barrier and providing the potential to better treat central nervous system diseases.
Pivot’s PGS division has acquired the worldwide rights to the BiPhasix™ Transdermal Drug Delivery platform technology (topical). BiPhasix™ is a dermal delivery technology for cannabinoids. Moreover, 1% CBD BiPhasix Cream is ready for commercialization.
Additionally, PGS acquired the worldwide rights from Solmic GmbH (Germany) for the development and commercialization of the Solmic Solubilisation Technology Platform for defined cannabinoids or cannabinoid-containing extracts. This formulation technology offers considerably higher bioavailability and stability versus alternative oil-based formulations.
