NetworkNewsBreaks – India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IGC) May Hold Blockbuster Position for Alzheimer’s Treatment

Savvy investors should be keeping a close eye on some key developments that have taken place within the past year relating to Alzheimer’s disease, medical cannabis, and India Globalization Capital (NYSE MKT: IGC). These developments include exciting, if preliminary, results relating to the effect of THC on amyloid-beta plaques—which are the plaques on neurons associated with Alzheimer’s disease—and a critical link between the related technology and IGC.

“This information was summarized in an article first published on Benzinga (http://nnw.fm/6SSZi) and recently adapted for HIGH TIMES (http://nnw.fm/7AZcm), titled ‘Marijuana Could Help Treat Alzheimer’s: Here’s How It Would Work.’

“Details from these articles include:

  • A paper published by the Salk Institute has validated a study by the University of South Florida, indicating that low doses of THC (one of the main chemical compounds present in marijuana) break up amyloid-beta plaques on neurons.
  • The prestigious journal Nature then published a paper showing that “cognitive function was restored in old mice who were given low doses of THC.”
  • After discovering that THC in low doses binds to amyloid-beta plaques, preventing them from aggregating on neurons, the University of South Florida filed a patent for that mechanism.
  • Following intensive negotiations, India Globalization Capital, a diverse Maryland-headquartered company now focused on the development of cannabis-based therapies, bought the exclusive rights to that U.S. patent filing.”
