Vitality Biopharma Inc. (OTCQB: VBIO) is dedicated to unlocking the power of cannabinoids for the treatment of serious neurological and inflammatory disorders. Vitality recently announced that during a recent in vitro safety pharmacological screening study, its lead drug candidate VBX-100 demonstrated no signs of adverse pharmacological effects, affirming its potential for widespread clinical use as a GI-targeted prodrug of THC. As a GI-targeted prodrug of THC, VBX-100 is intended to be functionally inert after ingestion and until it is activated in the lower gastrointestinal tract. Once the VBX-100 prodrug releases THC, it can exert therapeutic effects and data indicates there is minimal systemic absorption. As a result, there is minimal entry of THC into the bloodstream or brain, avoiding psychoactivity, while also avoiding the adverse systemic effects of currently marketed immunosuppressants.
