PsyBio Therapeutics Augments Intellectual Property Portfolio with Filing of Next Novel Psychedelic Compositions and Methods of Treatment Patent
Intellectual property portfolio now includes five pending provisionals and one pending non-provisional patent application
PsyBio Therapeutics Corp. (CVE: PSYB)(OTCMKTS: PSYBF), an intellectual property driven biotechnology company developing novel formulations of psychoactive medications produced by genetically modified bacteria for the treatment of mental health challenges and other disorders, has filed a new provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office entitled Psilocybin and Norbaeocystin Compositions and Methods of Treatment (the “Patent Application“). The Patent Application contains 67 new inventive claims and further demonstrates the Company’s vision to build a strong intellectual property portfolio protecting numerous novel psychedelic drug candidates being developed for clinical trial evaluations.
PsyBio’s intellectual property portfolio now includes five pending provisionals and one pending non-provisional patent application.
PsyBio is uniquely positioned as one of the leading biotechnology companies sponsoring the development of new therapeutic targets for myriad human health conditions. PsyBio has a multifaceted, biotechnology focused development program spanning compounds from different plants and fungi as well as a discovery program for a variety of non-natural drug targets. We have successfully tech transferred the first two molecules from the bench to commercial manufacturing and will continue with additional product candidates in the coming months. We are planning on submitting PsyBio’s initial pre-Investigational New Drug Application request by the end of this quarter with the goal of filing an Investigational New Drug Application around the end of 2021.Evan Levine, Chief Executive Officer of PsyBio
“The discovery of promising new tryptamine combinations can benefit from formal scientific evaluation in rodent models to define their potential therapeutic benefits,” stated Dr. Matthew S. McMurray, PhD, Member of PsyBio’s Scientific Advisory Board and Assistant Professor of Psychology at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. “Results from our latest testing demonstrates preliminary enhancement of efficacy when compounds are combined. This suggests powerful synergies exist between certain tryptamines, which may herald improved therapeutic profiles and safety. The collaboration agreement with PsyBio has expedited testing of these novel tryptamine combinations in my laboratory.”
