Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:ZYNE) is presenting two posters describing the efficacy, safety, and quality-of-life results in its Phase 2 BELIEVE clinical trial using its Zygel in children and adolescents with developmental and epileptic encephalopathy. Zygel is the Devon, Pennsylvania-based company’s main product candidate — a patent-protected CBD skin gel that is also being studied to treat other neurological disorders. In a statement Friday, the company said the posters were revealed today at the 2020 virtual annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society (AES). Both posters are available on the Zynerba corporate website. “These newly reported data are exciting as they describe the compelling anti-seizure activity of Zygel in children and adolescents suffering from developmental and epileptic encephalopathies, or DEEs, through twelve months of treatment,” said Chief Medical Officer Dr Joseph Palumbo. “This is particularly exciting, as this trial was conducted in a refractory seizure population in which patients failed to show adequate response despite taking as many as four anti-seizure drugs. Additionally, we observed an equally compelling seizure reduction in children with a coexisting diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.”

NetCents Technology Inc (CSE:NC) (FRA:26N) (OTCQB:NTTCF), a cryptocurrency payments company, revealed on Friday that it is developing a smart contract-based non-fungible token (NFT) platform for merchants, and ultimately its rapidly growing user base to allow “authenticity and provenance tracking” of products using Ethereum smart contract technology. The Vancouver-based company said the product “opens up a whole new use case for the development of the blockchain universe.” Non-fungible tokens contain identifying information recorded in their smart contracts. It’s this information that makes each NFT different and as such, they cannot be directly replaced by another token. A non-fungible token is a special type of cryptographic token, which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not mutually interchangeable. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin that are fungible in nature.
