TradingView Chart

What did Incannex release?

The company posted an overview of its assets, operations, and unique value proposition in the presentation released today.

Incannex described its intellectual property's "six categories of opportunity".

The company said it covers a potential $290 billion addressable market estimate for its lead drug candidates and $2 billion per year in potential revenue from psychedelic treatment therapies.

One of Incannex's lead drug candidates is IHL-42X, indicated in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

The OSA devices market is valued at US$10 billion, Incannex said, and it's projected to grow at 6.2% annually.

The drug candidate has made inroads in providing a novel solution to OSA, with data from clinical trials holding up well from a safety and efficacy standpoint.

So much so, the patent application for the drug "was considered 'novel and inventive' by [the] international patent examiner", Incannex said.

Incannex also noted it had a cash position of $37.5 million as of 30 June 2022 after raising $24 million in an equity raising in Mary 2022.

Those shares were issued at 35 cents a piece, a decent notch above the company's current share price.

The Incannex share price has clipped a 4% gain these past 12 months.
