Odyssey Health Inc. Files Full US Patent Application on Novel Breath-Propelled Intranasal Brain-Drug Delivery Device

Las Vegas, Nevada, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Odyssey Health, Inc. (OTC: ODYY), f/k/a Odyssey Group International, Inc. (the "Company" or "Odyssey"), announces that it has filed for United States and global patent protection on its novel breath-propelled, intranasal brain-drug delivery device (“Nasal Device”). As announced, Odyssey’s recently completed Phase I study to treat concussion successfully used Odyssey’s Nasal Device and drug combination.

Odyssey designed the Nasal Device with a novel drug dispensing system that creates an effective airflow for depositing concentrated drug deep into the nasal cavity and onto the olfactory region for quick and direct diffusion into the brain to treat central nervous system (“CNS”) injury, disease or disorder.

The Phase I study used Odyssey’s novel Nasal Device to deliver Odyssey’s concussion drug, PRV-002, and to determine the safety of its PRV-002 concussion drug. The PRV-002 concussion drug-Nasal Device combination was well-tolerated in forty (40) healthy human volunteers.  The study documented no Nasal Device failures.

“We were very pleased with the functionality and performance of the Nasal Device during the Phase I study and its administration of Odyssey’s PRV-002 concussion drug. The ability to get drugs for neurological conditions delivered directly into the brain rapidly at effective levels while simultaneously having less concern for side effects is a huge advantage in the development of safe and efficacious treatments. Odyssey’s novel Nasal device provides that opportunity and advantage,” commented Michael Redmond, CEO of Odyssey.

About PRV-002
PRV-002 is a synthetic non-naturally occurring neurosteroid being developed to treat central nervous system (“CNS”) injury, disease or disorder, such as, traumatic brain injury (“TBI”), especially mTBI (concussion). In preclinical studies, PRV-002 has demonstrated equivalent, if not superior, neuroprotective effects compared to related neurosteroids. Animal models of concussion demonstrated that PRV-002 reduces the behavioral pathology associated with brain injury symptoms such as memory impairment, anxiety, and motor/sensory performance.  Additionally, PRV-002 is lipophilic and can easily cross the blood-brain barrier to rapidly eliminate swelling, oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain while restoring proper blood flow.
