Tryp Therapeutics (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing intravenous-infused psilocin (the active metabolite of psilocybin) for diseases with high unmet medical needs, today announced interim results for the first five patients dosed in its Phase II STOP (Study of the Treatment of Overeating utilizing Psilocybin) trial. In collaboration with the University of Florida, the trial is evaluating TRP-8802 (oral psilocybin) in patients with binge eating disorder (“BED”) and represents the first use of psilocybin in conjunction with psychotherapy as a therapeutic intervention in patients with BED. “The magnitude and consistency of the trends observed in this interim analysis are incredibly encouraging,” said Tryp’s CEO Jim Gilligan, Ph.D. “Furthermore, these preliminary results provide us with the confidence that BED is a viable target for future studies with psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy utilizing TRP-8803, our proprietary IV formulation of psilocin that alleviates numerous shortcomings of oral psilocybin including: significantly reducing the time to onset of the psychedelic state, controlling the depth and duration of the psychedelic experience, and reducing the overall duration of the intervention to a commercially feasible timeframe. Our strategy is to perform small exploratory studies using TRP-8802 for unique indications including BED, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome, all in partnership with leading academic institutions. Once a positive clinical signal is identified in studies using TRP-8802, we intend to perform subsequent studies with TRP-8803.”
