BETHESDA, Md., April 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSE MKT:IGC) announces today that it has filed patent applications for IGC-501 in Canada, Israel, and Europe in support of its global cannabis-based combination therapy development initiatives.

IGC-501 is indicated for neuropathic pain. The pain market represents a significant component of the healthcare system and The Journal of Pain in September 2012 reported that the annual estimated national cost of pain ranges from $560 billion to $635 billion.  In addition, abuse of prescription opioids is estimated to cost about $25 billion.


The international landscape embraces advancements in medical cannabis with countries like Germany, Israel and Canada being in the forefront. We aspire to bring our cannabis-based compounds to these markets and position ourselves for sustained growth.  Canada's recent introduction of legislation to legalize cannabis and Germany's initiatives on medical cannabis are particularly encouraging on a global perspective.  It should be noted that filing a patent does not guarantee that a patent will be issued in the future.


"We continue to strengthen our IP position in cannabis-based combination therapies and have progressed to include global patent filings.  IGC is committed to addressing high potential international markets as a first mover in this emerging segment of cannabis-based combination therapy pharmaceuticals," concludes Ram Mukunda, CEO.
