$TGODF $TGOD Stock Gains in August: Here are Key Developments

Despite the broader weakness in the cannabis sector, TGOD stock has gained almost 10% so far in August. Here are some of the key developments this month for The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX:TGOD) (OTCQX:TGODF).

Application to List on the Nasdaq

Over the course of the past year or so, cannabis company The Green Organic Dutchman has made plenty of interesting moves, and earlier this month, it made its most important move so far. Earlier this month the company submitted its application to be listed on the NASDAQ and that could prove to be an eventual game changer for the company if it is approved. The ticker sign is going to be TGOD if its application is approved.

However, the company added that it will continue to trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The NASDAQ exchange lists some of the world’s biggest corporations and listing there will give The Green Organic Dutchman access to a much bigger pool of investors.

Moreover, listing on an exchange like NASDAQ can also result in the flow of big money into something like TGOD stock. If the approval is granted, the company is going to play in the big leagues.

The company published its financial results for Q2 2019 earlier this month and managed to record a 20% growth in its revenues from the first quarter. That is a highly impressive performance for the company, and the Chief Executive Officer Brian Athaide stated that TGOD has got highly positive reviews with regards to its organic premium cannabis.

The company is also a powerhouse when it comes production capabilities, and The Green Organic Dutchman has projected that when operating at full tilt it could produce as much as 219,000 kilos a year. On the other hand, it has also signed important deals, one of the most important being the extraction services deal with Neptune Wellness Solutions (TSX:NEPT) (NASDAQ:NEPT).

TGOD is going to supply 230,000 kilos of hemp and cannabis to Neptune over the course of three years. The company is certainly moving in the right direction, and investors should watch out for TGOD stock.

$GGBXF One of the Hottest Cannabis Growth Stories in the World

Palm Beach, FL – August 29, 2019 – The Latin America cannabis market is on pace to be one of the most exciting in the world.  In fact, it has the potential to become one of the largest markets in the world with an estimated value of $9.8 billion, according to New Frontier Data.  Colombia for example is just beginning to transform itself into a multi-billion-dollar cannabis producer for the pharmaceutical industry.  In time, growers estimate that the country could capture as much as a fifth of a global market that could be worth $40 billion a year, according to Reuters.  That’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC), Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE:GGB)(OTCQB:GGBXF), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB) (TSX:ACB), and Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc. (CSE:CWEB)(OTCQX:CWBHF).

The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS)(OTCQB:BOSQF) BREAKING NEWS: The Yield Growth Corp. just announced announce that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement through its subsidiary Urban Juve Provisions Inc. with Organic Medical Growth OMG3 Inc. for the exclusive distribution of Urban Juve products in Colombia and Brazil for a term of 5 years.  OMG3 plans to commence distribution of Urban Juve hemp-infused products in Colombia.  The first products to be offered will be Urban Juve’s Face Moisturizer, Ritual Body Oil, and its signature Anti-Aging Serum.  OMG3, through an exclusive 10-year distribution agreement, has access to more than 9,000 points of sale in Colombia (pharmacies and specialized stores). Through the same distribution partner, OMG3 can reach more than 44,000 retail locations in other countries in South America, including Brazil, Costa Rica, Panama, Argentina, El Salvador and Guatemala. Yield Growth and OMG3 intend to expand their distribution agreement to cover these additional territories.

“We are very pleased to welcome Urban Juve to our distribution portfolio and exclusively distribute their products in South America. In addition to creating in-house and co-branded hemp seed and cannabis-based product lines, our strategy is to bring major international brands to the market in the areas of cosmetics, therapeutic and pharmaceutical products,” says Jorge Diaz, President & CEO of OMG3. “We strongly believe that the Urban Juve products will be an excellent addition to the current retail offer, finding their way to customers across borders due to their natural formulas and benefits. Urban Juve products will be initially distributed in Colombia, and we look forward to working with their team on expanding the reach within our network throughout South America.”

Other cannabis-related developments from around the markets include:

Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) just announced that it has received a license from Health Canada for its KeyLeaf Life Sciences facility in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Including the Smiths Falls site and the recently licensed BC Tweed extraction site, Canopy Growth now operates three significant extraction assets to support the throughput required for large scale value-add product development. Canopy Growth recently retrofitted the now fully licensed KeyLeaf facility in Saskatchewan, a company with over 50 years of experience in the extraction industry. This facility is expected to be online in the Fall of 2019 and has the capacity to extract up to 5,000 kilograms of hemp or cannabis biomass per day. The application for the license was submitted under KeyLeaf’s previous name, POS Management Corp. and will be updated in due course. The newly licensed extraction platform is located in close proximity to Canopy Growth’s large-scale outdoor hemp and cannabis grow operations. The Company looks forward to the additional capacity increasing production efficiency, augmenting output volume, and ultimately reducing operational costs for value-add products set to be rolled out in the Canadian recreational and medical markets at the end of calendar year 2019. “With this milestone, we are executing against the vision of making strategic investments today in order to deliver results over the long term,” said Mark Zekulin, CEO, Canopy Growth. “This license will ensure we have the supply of extraction inputs for the medical, CBD, and recreational markets, especially the next generation of value-add, high margin cannabis products here in Canada.”

Green Growth Brands Inc. (CSE:GGB)(OTCQB:GGBXF) just announced that it expects to open its 100th Seventh Sense Botanical Therapy mall-based shop on Thursday, August 8, 2019. The first Seventh Sense shop opened in early February. “This is a huge milestone for Green Growth Brands and Seventh Sense,” said Peter Horvath, CEO of Green Growth Brands. “We believe we have created the largest and most valuable network of brick and mortar CBD shops in the country.” Seventh Sense shops retail high-quality botanical therapy CBD-infused personal care and beauty products at affordable prices. The product offering includes over 100 SKUs across bath, body, face, therapeutic, and sleep categories.

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB)(TSX:ACB) just announced the completion of the previously announced plan of arrangement with Hempco Food and Fiber Inc.

Hempco provides Aurora with access to low-cost, high-volume raw hemp material for the extraction of primarily cannabidiol (“CBD”) and other cannabinoids, which is gaining recognition for potential health benefits across a wide range of applications. Aurora identified the potential of hemp-derived CBD early on, completing its first investment in Hempco in 2017, and has subsequently expanded its hemp-based infrastructure through targeted acquisitions and strategic partnerships, creating Aurora Hemp: an integrated operating unit executing the Company’s Global Hemp Strategy. With expertise across genetics, extraction, product development, brands and distribution, Aurora Hemp is an end-to-end offering across the entire hemp value chain.

Charlotte’s Web Holdings Inc.

With his experience leading multi-billion-dollar multinational companies, he is the latest top-tier executive to join Charlotte’s Web as the Company accelerates its growth and evolution into a global consumer packaged goods (“CPG”) brand. Mr. Hammer replaces Rich Mohr, who as CFO has overseen the Company’s successful transition to a publicly traded company and market leader in hemp CBD products.  “Russ’s appointment aligns perfectly to support the Company’s evolution over the past few years from an early stage organization to a leading public company, into its next phase transitioning to a global CPG company. His breadth of international finance experience across a range of industries, as well as expertise in building operational infrastructure, applying forward-looking analytics, M&A, and accessing capital markets will help us scale the business in a financially stable way,” said Deanie Elsner, CEO of Charlotte’s Web.

$OGI Gains Media Attention Following Four Profitable Quarters

Organigram Holdings (TSX.V: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI), the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading licensed producer of cannabis, recently received coverage in a Bloomberg article discussing OGI’s financial results for the last four quarters (http://nnw.fm/DufT1). An article further discussing the company reads, “Organigram’s Q3 and fiscal year-to-date results represent some of the strongest operating and financial metrics amongst Canadian licensed producers. With one of the lowest cultivation costs per gram and continued discipline on selling, general and administrative expenses, Organigram’s results place it in the top tier of the Canadian industry. . . . As per the Bloomberg article, Organigram’s sustainable profitability is an outlier due to the fact that the industry has been experiencing some negative developments. Regulatory measures have been undertaken in Canada against some of the cultivators to ensure compliance. Other firms have been registering lower than expected sales, significant negative-adjusted EBITDA and shrinking margins in recent quarters.”

$OGI Commitment to Corporate Governance, Fiscal Discipline a ‘Rarity in the Industry’

  • Organigram’s corporate governance distinguishes the company in the cannabis industry
  • OGI’s consistent financial performance positions it as an “anomaly in the Canadian cannabis market”
  • The company recently upgraded from the TSX Venture Exchange to the Toronto Stock Exchange

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX: OGI) (NASDAQ: OGI), the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading Canadian licensed producer (LP) of premium-quality cannabis and extract-based products, is focused on producing high-quality, indoor-grown cannabis for patients and adult-recreational consumers. Championing that cause is Organigram’s leadership team, a group of seasoned professionals on the forefront of the global cannabis market who bring decades of experience in consumer-packaged goods, and pharma, including a CEO who held the same position at Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) before joining Organigram. In addition, the company’s fiscal discipline and execution, as well as its solid corporate governance foundation, distinguish it while some other LPs have met mild to severe consequences for regulatory breaches.

Bloomberg noted that OGI has a fully independent board of directors (excluding CEO Greg Engel), which is a rarity in the cannabis sector. The CEO sees good corporate governance as essential to a well-run pot company. “This is an industry that’s still very much moving from founders and executives being chairmen or…

$CNPOF $RIV.V Q1 FY19 Financial Results and Corporate Update

TORONTO, Aug. 27, 2019 – Canopy Rivers Inc. (the “Company” or “Canopy Rivers“) (TSXV: RIV), (OTC: CNPOF) today released its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The Company’s unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2019 (“Q1 2020“), and its management’s discussion and analysis (the “MD&A“) for Q1 2020, are available under the Company’s profile on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (“SEDAR“) at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website at www.canopyrivers.com/investors/financials-and-public-filings. All financial information in this press release is reported in Canadian dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

Figure 1 - Canopy Rivers Portfolio (CNW Group/Canopy Rivers Inc.)

“In Q1 2020, we made several exciting investments in plant sciences and cannabis brands, two areas that we think are primed for real growth in the cannabis sector,” said Narbe Alexandrian, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canopy Rivers. “In addition to our new investments, as lifecycle investors, it was also rewarding to see so much positive news coming from our portfolio companies this quarter. From PharmHouse entering into a significant supply agreement with Canopy Growth to TerrAscend becoming, to our knowledge, the first and, so far, only cannabis company with sales in Canada, the U.S., and the European Union, our portfolio companies were busy creating significant value.”

“We continue to maintain financial focus and discipline while looking to seize on exciting opportunities during a period of operational ramp-up in our portfolio and the cannabis sector more broadly,” said Eddie Lucarelli, Chief Financial Officer of Canopy Rivers. “While some of our financial results are linked to the public markets and therefore subject to volatility, we believe that several factors – including significant business catalysts within our portfolio, operational improvements that translate into increased production at our royalty investees, and an operating expense base that is low by cannabis sector standards – position us well to create value for our shareholders in the long term.”

During Q1 2020, Canopy Rivers generated operating income of $2.7 million, primarily driven by royalty, interest, and lease income generated from the following: royalty and debenture agreements with Agripharm, Greenhouse Juice, JWC, and Radicle (each as defined below); a lease agreement with Spot Therapeutics Inc.; and a shareholder loan agreement with PharmHouse (as defined below); as well as a $1.5 million net increase in the fair value of certain financial assets that are reported at fair value through profit or loss. These items were partially offset by Canopy Rivers’ $1.0 million share of loss from its equity method investees, which includes its common equity positions in Canapar Corp., Radicle, and PharmHouse. As these equity method investees continue to ramp-up operationally over the coming quarters, management expects to continue to recognize its share of net losses during the remainder of the fiscal year.

Operating expenses for Q1 2020 were $5.8 million, of which $3.7 million (or approximately 64% of the total) related to share-based compensation. A significant portion of this non-cash expense relates to options granted to non-employees, which occurred at an early stage in the Company’s growth and requires remeasurement each period. Other operating expenses, which include consulting and professional fees and other general and administrative expenses, were $2.0 million, representing an increase from last year due to the build-out of the Company’s management team and employee base and enhanced public company compliance and regulatory costs.

Other comprehensive income, which captures the net changes in fair value of financial assets that are reported at fair value through other comprehensive income, was a loss of $5.8 million, net of tax. The fair values of Canopy Rivers’ investments in Eureka 93 Inc., JWC, and YSS (as defined below) common shares and TerrAscend (as defined below) exchangeable shares were negatively impacted by downward trends in valuations for public cannabis companies during the period.

Canopy Rivers continued to capitalize on investment opportunities during the quarter, deploying $18.8 million to new investments in High Beauty, Biolumic, and Zeakal (each as defined below), and contributing a total of $6.0 million to existing investees Agripharm and Greenhouse Juice Company.

Portfolio Overview

Canopy Rivers currently has a diversified portfolio comprised of 18 companies (see Figure 1), each with its own point of differentiation. Management believes that this creates an ecosystem of complementary cannabis operators that are able to leverage the strengths within the portfolio in order to accelerate individual paths to success and create value for Canopy Rivers.

$PBIO InvestmentPitch Media Covers BaroShear K45 CBD Nanoemulsion Purchase Orders

Vancouver, British Columbia–(August 27, 2019) – Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) announced two additional purchase orders for its revolutionary BaroShear™ K45 processing system. Based on the company’s proprietary Ultra Shear Technology™ (UST™) platform, the BaroShear K45 is a unique and powerful nanoemulsification system designed to resolve one of the most critical problems facing CBD manufacturers today: the extremely poor solubility of CBD Oil in water.

For more information, please view the InvestmentPitch Media “video” which provides additional information about this news and the company. If this link is not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com and enter “Pressure” in the search box.

CBD, the non-psychoactive compound extracted from the cannabis plant in an oil form, has been broadly demonstrated to offer powerful health benefits, addressing a variety of challenging medical conditions. Because oils are not well absorbed into the water-based bodies of humans, following ingestion, most of the CBD is flushed from the system, leaving little of the product to provide its beneficial properties. Because of these solubility issues, many CBD products on the market today contain a costly and inefficient over-abundance of CBD, and/or undesirable chemicals that may be have been added to try and improve the CBD oil’s solubility in water. Processing oil-based products into nanometer-size droplets within water, creating a “nanoemulsion”, improves their absorption, medicinal benefits, visual appearance, and sensory presentation.

PBI’s patented UST platform uses ultra-high pressure to create extreme shearing forces that create highly stable, homogenized nanoemulsions of materials that normally do not mix, such as CBD Oil and water. In late July PBI announced its initial production commitment for 12 systems, and the sale of its first BaroShear K45 system. The new purchase orders came from NanoPeak Solutions, a private company located in Vancouver, British Columbia, with the second from a privately held company located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bruce Leitch, President of NanoPeak Solutions, stated: “We fully appreciate both the challenges and the significant emerging market opportunity of having the ability to deliver CBD in a form that allows for greater absorption and enhanced bioavailability. Multiple scientific studies have indicated that CBD should be processed via nanoemulsion technology in order to be truly water soluble and resulting in consumer products possessing both shelf stability and consistent dosages. NanoPeak has spent significant time reviewing and assessing various nanoemulsification platforms and the Company has great confidence that PBI’s BaroShear K45 System will be instrumental in NanoPeak having the ability to offer the highest quality ingredients to be utilized in CBD products of all types.”

For CBD products commonly consumed orally, including CBD Oils in edibles and beverages, absorption into the body is typically below 10%. PBI believes that processing with the UST-based BaroShear K45 system will deliver greatly improved absorption results, potentially as high as 90% for CBD and a universe of other oil-based supplements.

Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of Pressure Biosciences, stated: “We are very pleased that the NanoPeak Solutions Team has purchased one of the initial BaroShear K45 systems. We are further pleased that NanoPeak and PBI have agreed in principal to a long-term collaboration that both companies believe will be mutually-beneficial; to that end, the companies have agreed that the initial down payment for the purchase of the BaroShear K45 system will be paid to PBI in cash with the balance of the purchase paid in NanoPeak Solutions, Inc. common stock, thus binding the companies together in a way that will go well beyond the typical customer-vendor relationship. NanoPeak Solutions intends to engage with various research institutions in furthering the shared technology platform knowledge base and undertaking clinical trials along with ongoing new product development and innovation. We look forward to working closely with NanoPeak as they grow into a strong manufacturing partner and manufacturer of CBD infused products.

Pressure BioSciences, is a leader in the development and sale of innovative, broadly enabling, pressure-based solutions for the worldwide life sciences industry. The company has installed over 300 Pressure Cycling Technology™ systems in approximately 200 sites worldwide.

$PBIO Secures Agreement with Prominent Biotherapeutics Firm

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based technology and products to the worldwide life-sciences and other industries, recently executed a contract services agreement with a well-known biotherapeutics firm. An article discussing the company reads, “Under the terms of the agreement, the firm will utilize PBIO’s proprietary BaroFold(TM) technology platform to enhance the process manufacturing of one of its candidate protein drugs (http://nnw.fm/n6GTk). . . . PBIO’s BaroFold technology platform offers a unique and cost-effective way to address the complex and often-challenging process of manufacturing the recombinant proteins that are required in the development of protein-based drugs. Two of the major challenges associated with manufacturing recombinant proteins are (1) the formation of aggregates and (2) protein misfolding. These are significant issues that can prevent a protein drug candidate from ever making it to market.”

$CNPOF $RIV.V Portfolio Company Headset Debuts Cannabis Market Intelligence Tool in Canada

TORONTO, Aug. 26, 2019 – Canopy Rivers Inc. (the “Company” or “Canopy Rivers“) (TSXV: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) congratulates its portfolio company Headset, Inc. (“Headset“) on the launch of Headset Insights in Canada. Already trusted by hundreds of operators in numerous U.S. markets, including California, Colorado, Nevada, and Washington, Headset’s competitive intelligence tool provides real-time market data to help users uncover strategic opportunities, monitor consumer trends and behaviours, and keep tabs on competitors.

Home to the most licensed retailers and highest amount of cannabis purchases per capita in Canada – reporting $17.5 million in legal cannabis sales as of May 2019 – Alberta will be the first province to access Headset Insights. Canopy Rivers’ portfolio company YSS Corp. (“YSS“) (TSXV: YSS, WKN: A2PMAX) is among the initial group of Canadian operators already onboarded. The adoption of Headset Insights by YSS’s fast-growing retail chain is an example of the complementary transactions that occur throughout Canopy Rivers’ ecosystem. This connection was facilitated by the Canopy Rivers Impact Team, an in-house group of operations experts that actively identify opportunities for collaboration within the Canopy Rivers portfolio.

“This announcement from Headset is a testament to the company’s rapid growth since being backed by RIV and joining our ecosystem in January 2019,” said Narbe Alexandrian, President and CEO of Canopy Rivers. “We believe that Headset Insights is an unmatched resource for retailers, including Canopy Rivers portfolio company YSS, empowering them to make data-driven decisions based on trends unique to the Canadian market.”

As the cannabis industry matures, management believes that the ability to leverage data will become increasingly important, as Canadian operators attempt to gain market share, target customers, price products competitively, and understand ever-evolving purchasing dynamics.

Headset plans to introduce its software to other provinces in upcoming months, with the intention of monitoring the entire spectrum of cannabis product categories sold in Canada. For more information on the debut of Headset Insights in Canada, refer to Headset’s press release, linked here.

About Canopy Rivers Inc.

Canopy Rivers is a unique investment and operating platform structured to pursue investment opportunities in the emerging global cannabis sector. Canopy Rivers identifies strategic counterparties seeking financial and/or operating support. Canopy Rivers has developed an investment ecosystem of complementary cannabis operating companies that represent various segments of the value chain across the emerging cannabis sector. As the portfolio continues to develop, constituents will be provided with opportunities to work with Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED, NYSE: CGC) and collaborate among themselves, which Canopy Rivers believes will maximize value for its shareholders and foster an environment of innovation, synergy and value creation for the entire ecosystem.

$GNPX Featured in Broadcast Discussing Strength, Potential of Biotech Sector

NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2019 — via NetworkNewsAudio – Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ:GNPX) announces the availability of an audio press release broadcast titled, “Record Revenues, Milestone Achievements Indicate Strength, Potential of Biotech Sector” and produced by NetworkNewsWire (“NNW”).

With significant milestones being met, Genprex Inc. (NASDAQ:GNPX) is pressing forward with its strategy objectives to reprogram the course of cancer. The company plans on continuing to conduct ongoing and new clinical trials as well as pursue strategic partnerships with organizations whose missions align with its own. One of these existing partnerships — with manufacturing partner Aldevron — recently resulted in the successful completion of the manufacturing of the TUSC2 plasmid DNA.

Genprex is also preparing to commercialize Oncoprex. Most recently, the company announced that it has initiated the first phase of branding the immunogene therapy and has completed the creation and submission of nonproprietary drug name selections to the American Medical Associations’ United States Adopted Names Council.

In addition, Genprex is planning to investigate the effectiveness of Oncoprex in other cancers as well as further develop platform technology.

About Genprex Inc.

Genprex Inc. is a clinical stage gene therapy company developing potentially life-changing technologies for cancer patients, based upon a unique proprietary technology platform, including Genprex’s initial product candidate, Oncoprex™ immunogene therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Genprex’s platform technologies are designed to administer cancer-fighting genes by encapsulating them into nanoscale hollow spheres called nanovesicles, which are then administered intravenously and taken up by tumor cells where they express proteins that are missing or found in low quantities. Oncoprex has a multimodal mechanism of action whereby it interrupts cell-signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells, re-establishes pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells, and modulates the immune response against cancer cells. Oncoprex has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance.

$INMB Advances Clinical Development of INB03

INmune Bio (NASDAQ: INMB) co-founder and CEO Dr. RJ Tesi recently reported positive preliminary data from the company’s INB03 Phase I clinical trial in cancer patients during a presentation at Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 7th Annual Immuno-Oncology Summit in Boston (http://nnw.fm/Wu2Ao). An article discussing the company reads, “‘The goal of the Phase I study is to determine, in order of priority, the safety of INB03 in cancer patients, the dose of INB03 to take into the Phase II trials in cancer, and evidence of a biologic effect of INB03,’ stated Tesi, who is also INmune Bio’s chief medical officer. ‘All of these goals have been met. Using data from this trial, we have begun planning a Phase II trial using INB03 as part of combination immunotherapy in patients with cancer.’ . . . The Phase I trial is an open-label, dose-escalation trial in patients with advanced solid tumors. Patients received INB03, a novel, second-generation soluble TNF (tumor necrosis factor) inhibitor that works by leveraging a dominant-negative technology. Positive preliminary data from the first two cohorts were released. That data will be followed by a final report later this year as the company advances the program into a Phase II study.”

About INmune Bio Inc.

INmune Bio Inc. is a publicly traded (NASDAQ: INMB) clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies targeting the innate immune system to fight disease. INmune Bio is developing three product platforms: two products that reengineer the patient’s innate immune system’s response to cancer and one product to treat neuroinflammation that is currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease. INKmune is a natural killer (“NK”) cell therapeutic that primes the patient’s NK cells to attack minimal residual disease, the remaining cancer cells that are difficult to detect, which often cause relapse. INB03 inhibits myeloid derived suppressor cells (“MDSC”), which often cause resistance to immunotherapy, such as anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors. XPro1595 targets neuroinflammation, which causes microglial activation and neuronal cell death. INmune Bio’s product platforms utilize a precision medicine approach for the treatment of a wide variety of hematologic malignancies, solid tumors and chronic inflammation.
