While there will be a handful of other biotech companies participating in the conference, we'll be attending the conference to see what else we can learn about Intec Pharma. Intec Pharma is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing drugs based on its proprietary Accordion Pill platform technology. Currently, Intec's product pipeline includes two product candidates in clinical trial stages. The one we're most interested in learning more about is the company's AP-CBD/THC, an Accordion Pill containing cannabidiol (a.k.a. CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (a.k.a. THC), which is being developed for various indications including neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia.
