Tryp Therapeutics Partners with Alcami for Proprietary Formulations
Tryp Therapeutics (CNSX: TRYP) (OTCMKTS: TRYPF), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing compounds for diseases with unmet medical needs through accelerated regulatory pathways, announced today an agreement with Alcami Corporation (“Alcami”), a global pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), to support the proprietary formulation of products for Tryp’s Psilocybin-for-Neuropsychiatric Disorders (PFNTM) program. Tryp’s collaboration with Alcami will initially focus on developing oral formulations for Tryp’s proprietary psilocybin Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (“API”) being manufactured by Albany Molecular Research, Inc. (“AMRI”).
“The support we have been engaged to provide is a testament to our broad capabilities, technical expertise, and ability to collaborate with customers to consistently deliver high quality results,” commented Pat Walsh, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Alcami. “We are proud to support Tryp and their transformational work in a variety of indications.”
Tryp expects to manufacture its initial batch of cGMP psilocybin API in September 2021. Alcami and Tryp will then develop the analytical methods and the final formulation of Tryp’s oral psilocybin product.
Our partnership with Alcami signals the further advancement of our proprietary manufacturing of synthetic psilocybin. We have been impressed with Alcami’s expertise with developing both final formulations as well as the analytical methods that will ensure the consistently excellent quality of our products.Jim Gilligan, Ph.D., President and Chief Science Officer of Tryp
