Technology

Bioinformatics: a significant promise for future drug discovery

Bioinformatics is a proprietary, computer-based program designed to assist in the identification of novel cannabinoids using comprehensive algorithms to integrate data from numerous bioinformatics databases, as well as a database on the structure of currently approved pharmaceutical products and an extensive database on over 90 individual cannabinoid drugs found in cannabis.

With this tool, InMed aims to create associations between approved pharmaceuticals and cannabinoids with similar structures in order to identify active cannabinoids that have the potential to treat specific diseases.

After discovering active cannabinoids, InMed tests and confirms their activity in biological systems through in vitro and in vivo experimentation. It is at this stage of development that the company's proprietary biosynthesis process of cannabinoid manufacturing will be most promising.

InMed is currently developing a robust, high-yield biosynthesis process for manufacturing all 90+ naturally-occurring cannabinoids. By modifying the agriculture-based formula for harvesting cannabinoids, InMed aims to combine the inherent safety and known efficacy of the natural drug structure with the convenience, control and quality of 21st Century laboratory-based manufacturing processes.

 


Pipeline

InMed is building a robust product pipeline through its proprietary discovery platform and research & product development programs. The company continues to seek innovative product candidates for the treatment in following therapeutic areas:

  • Ocular Diseases
    Pain & Inflammation
    Dermatology
  • CNS
    Respiratory Disease
    Metabolic Disease

InMed's pipeline currently includes two drug candidates in preclinical development: INM-750 for the treatment of epidermolysis bullosa (EB); and INM-085 for the treatment of glaucoma.

INM-750

Referred to as "The Worst Disease You've Never Heard Of," EB is a rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects roughly one out of every 20,000 births in the United States.

INM-750 is a proprietary, topical cannabinoid product candidate intended as a dual approach therapy that may prove beneficial to patients in two ways: first, the ability of certain cannabinoids to play a role in addressing key disease hallmarks (wound healing, infection, pain, itch, inflammation); and second, the ability of some cannabinoids to regulate the expression of various proteins incriminated in EB's pathogenesis by upregulating certain keratins in the skin in an effort to modulate the painful manifestations of EB.

Through the development of INM-750, InMed's lead program, InMed is attempting to address this significant unmet medical need, in this Orphan indication, for which there is no approved treatment or cure.

Market Potential - Amicus Therapeutics recently acquired Scioderm, Inc. and its lead EB drug candidate, Zorblisa™, for $847 million. Notably, Scioderm's sole clinical asset was Zorblisa.

JP Morgan and Cowen Research Reports estimate that peak sales for Zorblisa could reach $900 million to $1.2 billion.

INM-085

INM-085 is formulated to reduce the elevated intra-ocular pressure that is often associated with glaucoma. Additionally, the cannabinoids utilized in INM-085 are expected to provide neuroprotection for the retinal ganglion cells and other optic nerve tissues following topical administration of this dual action approach to treatment. Additionally, InMed is developing a proprietary once-a day hydro-gel, an important drug delivery technology for this therapy. Although it is still in preclinical development, INM-085 targets a sizable market. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness with no approved cure.

Market Potential - The National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 3 million Americans currently have glaucoma, and more than 120,000 have been blinded by the disease. Worldwide, glaucoma represents a market of $5.6 billion.

 


The Case for Cannabinoids

The majority of pharmaceutical and academic research & development activities being performed with cannabis revolves around the understanding of its biologically active ingredients, the cannabinoids.

Currently there are 90+ cannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis, each affecting the body's cannabinoid receptors and responsible for unique pharmacological effects. There are currently two known types of cannabinoid receptors, called CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and to a lesser extent in other issues.

CB2 receptors are mostly in the peripheral organs, especially cells associated with the immune system.

Cannabinoids can be administered by smoking, vaporizing, oral ingestion, transdermal patch, intravenous injection, sublingual absorption, or rectal suppository. Once in the body, most cannabinoids are metabolized in the liver, although some is stored in fat.

Cannabinoids can be separated from the plant by extraction with organic solvents. However, to produce high purity, cannabinoid chemical synthesis or semisynthesis is generally required.

InMed specializes in developing novel therapies through the R&D into the extensive pharmacology of cannabinoids in combination with innovative drug delivery systems, positioning the company as a unique first-mover in the cannabis-pharma sector.

PIPELINE

InMed Pharmaceuticals is currently developing two products in its drug pipeline: INM-750, for the treatment of Epidermolysis Bullosa, and INM-085, for the treatment of Glaucoma.


 

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is group of inherited connective tissue diseases that share a common manifestation of extremely fragile skin that blisters or tears easily from friction or trauma. Internal organs and bodily systems can also be affected by EB. It is a result in a defect of anchoring between the dermis and epidermis cause most frequently by the absence of certain keratins (or, proteins) in the skin. EB is an orphan disease with no currently approved treatments and has a significant unmet medical need. INM-750 will potentially be the first therapy designed and developed specifically to modulate disease activity and to alleviate symptoms in EB.

INM-750 includes multiple cannabinoids as the active ingredients:

The cannabinoids included in INM-750 were selected to modulate keratin levels in patients with EB with the expectation of having a disease modulating effect
A secondary consideration in selection of the cannabinoids was addressing symptoms of EB such as inflammation, wound healing, skin regeneration, itching, and pain
INM-750 is being developed for topical application, designed to maximize penetration of the cannabinoids to the epidermal / dermal junction in the skin.

 

INM-085

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders which result in damage of the optic nerve. The damage is most often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye and is one of the leading causes of blindness in the developed world.

INM-085 will be the first ever glaucoma treatment developed that is a multi-target, multi-mechanism of action therapy, utilizing multiple cannabinoids for optimal efficacy. The cannabinoids in INM-085 have been selected to reduce the elevated intra-ocular pressure (IOP) in the affected eyes and provide neuroprotection for the retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and other optic nerve tissues.

INM-085 is designed as a topical formulation to be administered directly to the eye. The formulation that has been designed by InMed is a proprietary polymer-based formulation to facilitate absorption of the cannabinoids into the eye while also being well tolerated by the patients. We envision a once-a-day application, at bedtime, to deliver effective dose levels of INM-085.

 

BIOINFORMATICS

Bioinformatics: Proprietary Drug / Disease Targeting Tool

InMed’s has developed a computer-based program to assist in the identification of novel cannabinoids using: (i) comprehensive algorithms to integrate data from numerous bioinformatics databases, (ii) a database on the structure of currently approved pharmaceutical products, and (iii) an extensive database on over 90 individual cannabinoid drugs found in cannabis.

InMed’s data included in its bioinformatics assessment tool are derived from both public and propriety based sources, and include information on:
Protein-Protein interactions
Gene Regulation
Epigenetic modification
Cell signal networks, and
Metabolomics








InMed uses processes called “random walk algorithms” and “guilt by association” to establish gene and protein-protein interaction networks to identify multi-target based approaches for therapy development for specific diseases.By using its comprehensive pharmaceutical and cannabinoid structures database, and by creating associations between approved pharmaceuticals (whose pharmacodynamics effects are well characterized) and cannabinoids with similar structures, InMed identifies active cannabinoids to act on above mentioned genes and proteins.Once a series of potentially active cannabinoids are identified for a specific disease target, InMed will test and confirm their activity in biological systems with 
in vitro and in vivo
 experimentation.This type of bioinformatics assessment, as a general approach, represents significant promise for future drug discovery, as it integrates many data sets and builds holistic models to approach a specific disease.
