Biotech readers would be familiar with the UK-based company GW Pharma, which became the first business globally to get FDA approval for a clinically proven cannabinoid treatment.

Following the in-market success of its Epidiolex product, GW Pharma was acquired this year by the Nasdaq-listed Jazz Pharmaceuticals in a $US7.2 billion deal.

Multiple pathways and diversified asset base

While GW Pharma was successful with a sole product, Latham said IHL’s value proposition is based on a multi-channel approach.

The company has six different treatments in various stages of clinical development – five for IHL’s range of proprietary cannabinoid combination drugs, plus a separate study (in conjunction with Monash University) using the psychedelic compound psilocybin.

Just as GW Pharma did, IHL is targeting unmet medical conditions which means it qualifies for fast-tracked regulatory approval with the US FDA.

And Incannex benefits from that accelerated pathway for six treatments, not just one.

“One characteristic that sets us apart is that we have six programs running in parallel, knowing they all qualify for the accelerated 505(b)(2) commercialisation pathway with the FDA. This affords us the opportunity to achieve new drug registrations in a significantly shorter period of time,” Latham said.

“The company has completed rigorous due-diligence, pre-clinical studies and examined extensive pre-existing data to de-risk our projects for our shareholders. And, as we’ve previously announced, we are also looking at another psychedelic medicine program, which would take our project count to seven in total”.

Addressable market

While the development of multiple drug treatments de-risks IHL’s pathways to clinical approval, it’s also potentially more lucrative.

What a vasectomy is exactly, and why it might be a good idea

  What a vasectomy is exactly, and why it might be a good idea In a time where men and women are slowly becoming more equal in most aspects of society, there has been surprisingly little progress in the area of contraception. Women are still expected to take most of the responsibility when it comes to potential pregnancies. However, the solution to this inequality could be the vasectomy procedure. It is possible now to freeze sperm and save them for when you want kids. Vasectomies are also reversible. All that is left to do is explain what the procedure actually is, and how it could improve the lives of both men and women. Click through to learn more.

Zacks Rank: GW Pharma currently has a Zacks Rank #3. The combination of a positive Earnings ESP and a favorable Zacks Rank makes us reasonably confident of an earnings beat.

Latham said that across the six proprietary development programs, the total addressable market is in excess of $US130 billion per annum, where there are currently no existing pharmaceutical therapies available.

“As we continue to experience research success and implement our commercialisation strategy for each drug asset, the company will be providing pharmaceutical treatment options to global markets in excess of $US130 billion on an annual basis,” Latham said.

And with so many projects underway, IHL is looking forward to presenting a steady flow of market updates for the foreseeable future, he added.

“Some programs are at different stages of the clinical development pathway,” he said.

As an example, IHL’s Phase 2 trial to assess the safety and efficacy of its IHL-42X sleep apnoea treatment is underway right now.

“With a partnership in place with The Alfred Hospital, our IHL-42X OSA Phase 2 study is underway with patient dosing taking place. Additionally, we are in the process of assessing the pre-clinical results we’re received our various other development programs and the company will continue to build robust clinical development programs delivering near- and long-term value for shareholders,” Latham said.

US opportunity

Having gained accelerated development pathway eligibility for each of its drug formulations in the US market, IHL is now looking to leverage that traction by exploring opportunities for a US listing – specifically the NYSE or Nasdaq.

And Latham said the basis for those talks progressing is the fact that IHL’s development model is viewed favourably by US investors.

“The feedback we have received from the US market and investment banks is that they see Incannex as a unique value proposition, particularly when looking at comparable companies in the US market, which are valued at over $US1 billion,” Latham said.

He cited the example of two North American clinical psychedelic research companies – Compass Pathways and MindMed – both of which already have a market cap of more than $US1bn.

Mindmed received its pre-IND feedback from the FDA for its proposed Phase 2 trial for LSD and anxiety in December 2020. IHL isn’t far behind as it’s in the process of compiling its own FDA pre-IND meeting package for a Phase 2 trial using psilocybin in patients with generalised anxiety disorder.

“For us, looking to list on a US main market is really about taking advantage of a global pool of investors who are interested in what we’re doing and to expand upon our ASX listing by attracting sophisticated investors globally,” Latham said.

Ultimately, the company’s standing in the psychedelic and cannabinoid research space is the “truly appreciated value driver” behind IHL, he added.

“We have secured IP protection, created and implemented a robust FDA regulatory strategy and US investors are starting to understand the upside potential of Incannex, simply due to targeting unmet medical conditions providing the company with significant commercial opportunity.”
