India Globalization Capital (NYSE American: IGC) announced on Thursday that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a patent for treating Alzheimer’s disease.


The patent is entitled “Ultra-Low dose THC as a potential therapeutic and prophylactic agent for Alzheimer’s Disease.”

The patent relates to IGC’s proprietary formulation intended to assist in treating individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease.

The formulation is currently in Phase 1 trials with IGC recently announcing “the completion of Cohort 3 in its placebo-controlled Multiple Ascending Dose (MAD) phase 1 trial for establishing safety and tolerability of IGC-AD1 that uses THC on patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.”
