About Odyssey NeuroPharma Inc.
Odyssey NeuroPharma, Inc., is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Odyssey Health Inc. and focused on developing drugs to treat neurological disorders. The blood-brain barrier (“BBB”) represents a significant obstacle for drug delivery to the brain. Many drugs have failed in neuroscience research due to the inability to jump the hurdle that is the BBB. The Odyssey NeuroPharma will use its unique intranasal delivery device coupled with its powdered formulations to let drugs be delivered more directly to the brain, providing for efficient and quick delivery. This targeted approach requires less drug to accomplish neuroprotection further reducing drug levels in the plasma which reduces side effects.
