GB Sciences’ First International Patent Protecting Its Proprietary Cannabinoid-Based Formulations for Parkinson’s Disease Has Been Issued in China

According to Statista, China has the second largest pharmaceutical market in the world and plant-based medicines are very well accepted, which makes China a potential target market for Gb Sciences.

Gb Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX), a leading cannabis- and plant-inspired biopharmaceutical research and development company, has recently been issued a patent in China to protect its proprietary cannabinoid-containing formulation for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. China is an increasingly important pharmaceutical market with cultural acceptance of plant-based formulations, which is a good fit for Gb Sciences' drug candidates. Gb Sciences' first international patent also confirms that the Company's intellectual property strategy can work globally and strengthens the Company's patent portfolio. The global market for treatments of Parkinson's disease is projected to grow to $8.8 billion by the year 2026, and new therapies to address Parkinson's disease symptoms are greatly needed.

"The issuance of Gb Sciences' first international patent protecting methods of using our proprietary cannabinoid-containing formulations for treating Parkinson's disease is an important milestone in the development of these vitally important therapies. Gb Sciences' recent patent issued in China validates both our plant-inspired drug discovery process and intellectual property strategy, which involve defining and protecting Minimum Essential Mixtures," explained Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, President and Chief Science Officer of Gb Sciences, Inc. "Gb Sciences starts its drug discovery process with plant-based therapies that are working anecdotally or in traditional medical systems, then we systematically reduce the number of compounds to reveal Minimum Essential Mixtures. Gb Sciences' novel Minimum Essential Mixtures retain the increased efficacy of whole plant medicines, but they are easier to manufacture with precision at scale like single ingredient drugs. These Minimum Essential Mixtures are a viable alternative to standard single ingredient drugs or traditional whole plant medicines."

Gb Sciences' Minimum Essential Mixture-based drug development strategy does not aim to treat complex diseases as if they were caused by a single factor, but instead addresses the combination of factors that lead to a complex human disorder. Minimum Essential Mixtures (MEMs) are potentially more effective than single ingredient drugs because the different active ingredients target the multiple human processes responsible for complex diseases, such as neurodegeneration, heart disease, and cancers. As such, MEMs may offer a more holistic treatment for complex disorders such as Parkinson's disease that cannot be attributed to a single cause, while maintaining the manufacturing and quality control advantages of single ingredient drugs.

Gb Sciences' patent portfolio currently contains six issued U.S. and four issued foreign patents, as well as 15 U.S. and 49 foreign patent-pending applications that cover our novel AI-enabled drug discovery platform and proprietary plant-inspired therapies for more than 65 different disorders.

ChatGPT integration in ECO NLP platform

Leading Natural Language Processing (NLP) solutions company, Pangeanic, has announced the integration of OpenAI's GPT-4 model on its platform. This will allow users to access some of the features of the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) to summarize text, among other functions. In addition, customers will be able to combine it with Pangeanic's own anonymization and data masking solutions as a secure system so that no personal data is transferred from one jurisdiction to another. 

With this integration, Pangeanic will enable users to use current and future releases of ChatGPT or other Large Language Models (LLM) with the tools and workflows of its NLP platform. The company's ECO platform is designed for the real needs of governments and businesses and helps institutions and corporations translate millions of documents with customized engines, mask data using full anonymization or pseudonymization techniques, classify information and extract knowledge from data. 

Pangeanic's CEO, Manuel Herranz, highlights that the company focuses on AI techniques that deliver value and that its ECO platform is designed to provide full respect for privacy through the Masker data masking solution. Users can now benefit from not having to use prompts, and summarize documents through OpenAI's ChatGPT customization, as well as doing so securely, without revealing any personal details. 

Pangeanic's mission is to combine the best of AI with human ingenuity, and its hybrid approach delivers the best results for NLP applications. AI does what it knows best, while humans remain the ultimate evaluators and decision-makers. The company is convinced that language is becoming a crucial use case for AI, and that this knowledge-based approach can reliably provide accurate results and ensure data privacy.
