Mydecine Innovations (NEO: MYCO) (OTC: MYCOF) (FSE: 0NFA), a biotechnology company aiming to transform the treatment of mental health and addiction disorders, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has cleared MYCO-001 in a recent Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application, marking the first clearance of the company’s drug product. According to the update, the investigator-initiated trial is funded by a near $4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, marking the first time in 50 years the U.S. government has funded a study evaluating a psychedelic compound for therapeutic use. The purpose of the randomized trial is to determine whether psilocybin increases smoking abstinence compared to a placebo, both paired with cognitive-behavioral therapy (“CBT”). “Mydecine looks forward to supplying the placebo and our MYCO-001 drug product for this study,” said Mydecine CEO Josh Bartch. “The FDA clearance is encouraging as we prepare to submit the IND for our industry sponsored phase 2b trial using the same drug products.”
