Management Commentary

We completed dosing our Phase 2 in December of last year and remain on-track to present final data before the end of this current calendar quarter, a milestone that enables an EOP2A meeting with FDA to determine the next steps in our development path. We have amassed a significant amount of human clinical data since January 2022, having dosed 134 THC challenged subjects with ANEB-001,’ said Simon Allen, Chief Executive Officer of Anebulo. ‘Data from an ongoing observational study of ACI patients in the emergency department setting is expected to supplement our efforts to develop the first FDA approved therapy to treat ACI.’
