VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“InMed” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INM), a leader in the research, development and manufacturing of rare cannabinoids, announces it is supporting initiatives to raise awareness of epidermolysis bullosa, a group of rare genetic connective tissue disorders. Epidermolysis Bullosa Global Awareness Week is October 25-31, 2022.
Alexandra Mancini, Senior Vice President of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs for InMed commented, “In severe cases of epidermolysis bullosa, or EB, the very fragile skin tears easily and forms painful blisters and open wounds that do not heal quickly. EB is a very important but rare disease that does not get the attention it deserves. EB Awareness Week is an opportunity for the community to come together to raise awareness about epidermolysis bullosa to foster the necessary research and resources to work towards better treatments and, eventually, a cure to improve the lives of those with EB. InMed has undertaken a Phase 2 study in patients with EB in the hope that its cannabinol cream will provide important symptom benefit.”
Throughout EB Awareness Week, InMed will be raising awareness and supporting the EB community through education and sharing personal EB stories via its social media channels. Help InMed support EB patients, families and advocate organizations by spreading awareness and following the work of important organizations such as DEBRA of America, DEBRA Canada, DEBRA International and EB Research Partnership.
What is epidermolysis bullosa?
Epidermolysis bullosa, or EB, is a group of rare genetic skin diseases characterized by fragile skin that can lead to extensive blistering and wounding. It affects skin and mucous membranes, particularly of the gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary and respiratory systems. It is a debilitating disease affecting a small number of people, thus earning it an orphan-disease status. The disease has no definitive cure and all currently approved treatments are directed towards symptom relief. Learn more: https://www.inmedpharma.com/learn/what-is-epidermolysis-bullosa/.
