Nemus Bioscience Advances Program on Cannabidiol Analogue for Pain Management
Nemus Bioscience will partner with the University of Mississippi (UM) to further investigate the analgesic and abuse-deterrent properties of a unique cannabidiol (CBD) analogue, known as NB2111, for the management of pain associated with disorders like fibromyalgia. Nemus anticipates that the results of in vivo studies will add to the body of evidence showing that NB2111 has analgesic properties comparable to opioids in animal models. NB2111 has been shown previously to have anti-addictive activity against opioids in an animal model. “The global need for an effective analgesic continues to grow with aging populations and the attendant conditions associated with diseases of old age. ... Nemus plans to utilize its portfolio of cannabinoid-based therapies to develop a continuum of care for patients experiencing acute or chronic pain, as well as helping patients who may have developed an addiction to opioids convert to cannabinoid-class compounds that we believe offer analgesic coverage without the associated serious adverse safety profile associated with long-term opioid use,” said Brian Murphy, MD, in a press release. Murphy is CEO and chief medical officer of Nemus. "We expect to formally present this data at an upcoming peer-reviewed scientific meeting. Nemus plans to examine developmental partnering opportunities with companies who may already have a presence in this therapeutic area but are looking to expand their portfolio into cannab

    Looks like the FDA needs to talk to the DEA! Another example of the right hand not knowing what the left hand has already deemed a “CLASS 1” scheduled drug. Let’s hope they talk to one another…soon!

      No kidding, Denise. My opioid meds have been reduced three times since September and no longer do the job. Although Cannabinoid isn’t legal in my State, it would’ve been handy if they’d allowed pain patients to try an alternative before eliminating what is already working. Not to mention the way they lump those obtaining illegal prescription meds with those who have been using them legally and monitored by a physician. They’ve thrown heroin into the mix, as well, and I surely have never heard of heroin being prescribed by any pain management physician. Instead of targeting the drug cartels, they pick on the least able to object.
