Four clinical programs to treat underserved central nervous system disorders:
THX-110: A drug candidate platform for the treatment of symptoms related to Tourette syndrome (TS), as well as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and chronic pain.
The THX-110 program takes a unique approach to cannabinoid formulation using the “Entourage Effect” hypothesis (i.e. in which Endocannabinoid system constituents work synergistically together). THX-110 is a proprietary combination drug based on dronabinol and PEA. PEA is a cannabinoid mimetic lipid molecule, which naturally occurs in various plant and animal sources.
THX-130: An “Ultra Low-Dose” THC targeting the high value and unserved market of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), using a unique and proprietary drug development and delivery dosage platform.
THX-150: A drug candidate intended for the treatment of infectious diseases. It consists of a selected antibacterial agent, with THC or a combination of THC and PEA, to potentially exert antimicrobial synergy.
THX-160: An innovative and proprietary CB2 receptor agonist formulation intended for the treatment of pain. This specific CB2 receptor agonist was synthesized by Professor Raphael Mechoulam, Ph.D.
THX-110, THX-130 and THX-150 are using a 505 (b)(2) regulatory strategy based on prior FDA approval of dronabinol.
