Ram Mukunda will be a speaker at the upcoming CEO Healthcare Symposium in New York on February 12 and February 13, 2018. His presentation will include commentary on the Company’s efforts in developing and commercializing cannabis–based pharmaceuticals including Hyalolex for Alzheimer’s disease.
2018 Key Objectives
“We are preparing the groundwork necessary to prepare Hyalolex, our lead product formulation for Alzheimer’s ready for Phase 2-B human trials. Independent of this, we expect to make the product available through medical dispensaries in select states of the U.S. In addition, we are working on addressing issues specific to the medical cannabis industry such as transactional difficulties, inadequate product labeling, product identification assurance (PIA) and product origin assurance (POA), using distributed ledgers inherent in blockchain technology. We look forward to an exciting 2018 and I wish to thank YJP for the opportunity to speak at their CEO Healthcare Symposium alongside prestigious leaders and innovators in the healthcare industry,” commented Ram Mukunda, CEO.

IGC announces intention to develop blockchain solution for cannabis market
On December 26, 2017, IGC announced that it plans to utilize blockchain technology to address industry issues specific to the medical cannabis industry. The company cited areas including product identification assurance (PIA), inadequate product labeling, transactional difficulties, and product origin assurance as areas that it was seeking to address. Clearly, blockchain technology, which uses a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography to manage large databases securely, is an area of high attention given its robust growth and crucial role in cryptocurrencies. We believe the company intends to develop a platform first for Hyaolex’s go-to-market strategy in the dispensary market, with an aim to leverage the platform for the highly regulated and rapidly evolving cannabis industry.
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a form of dementia. It is known as America’s most expensive disease, with an estimated cost to the U.S. economy of $236 billion. AD currently affects more than 5.3 million Americans and over 65% of AD patients are women. Over the next 20 years, the number of those afflicted with the disease is expected to double. The forecast is staggering, considering that to date, no effective cure has been found.
