Canada Newswire, November 14, 2021

TORONTO, Nov. 14 /CNW/ – Cannasat Therapeutics Inc. (CTH: TSXV) and IntelGenx Corp. today announced a long-term collaborative agreement to co-develop novel cannabinoid-based products through a combination of Cannasat’s and IntelGenx’s proprietary drug delivery technologies. The collaboration will focus on the development and production of new formulations of cannabinoid pharmaceutical products, starting with Cannasat’s lead product, CAT 310.

Cannasat will leverage IntelGenx’s significant experience in developing unique oral, sublingual, and transdermal formulations. IntelGenx’s expertise will help address the challenges of achieving rapid onset, improving therapeutic efficacy, and minimizing central nervous system side effects with cannabinoids in treating disease indications such as neuropathic pain, movement disorders, and chronic pain.

“We are excited to work with IntelGenx to develop new cannabinoid pharmaceuticals that could potentially address a wide range of therapeutic indications such as neuropathic pain, where there is currently a large unmet medical need for new therapies. IntelGenx’s technology platform complements our existing drug delivery technologies and provides us an opportunity to broaden our growing intellectual property portfolio and product development pipeline. We are committed to expanding our arsenal of drug delivery technologies that can enhance the effectiveness of cannabinoid-based drugs,” said David Hill, CEO of Cannasat Therapeutics.
