The patent is for an invention that relates to an antiviral cannabinoid-containing sol-gel formulation and its use in the treatment or prevention of viruses such as Coronaviruses and influenza. In particular embodiments, the cannabinoid containing sol-gel formulation is adapted for nasal delivery and comprises a micellar composition with a cannabinoid composition, where the cannabinoid composition comprises cannabidiol (“CBD”).

COVID-19 is responsible for a pandemic that has spread to more than 210 countries, with more than 37 million people infected, and over a million deaths have been recorded since the pandemic was first declared. No pharmacological agent is available yet to bring the virus 100% under control and to curb its devastating effects. Various anti-viral and anti-inflammatory drugs have been trialled with varying degrees of success, and it has been reported that CBD may have an effect in treating or preventing COVID-19 and symptoms associated with COVID-19.
PreveCeutical’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Stephen Van Deventer, commented, “There is a need for therapies for Coronaviruses and influenza that are readily delivered to the respiratory system. Our plan is to have products from this Invention delivered through nasal delivery, aiming to make it more patient and practitioner friendly”.
