VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PharmAla Biotech Holdings Inc. (“PharmAla”)(CSE: MDMA) is pleased to announce that it has signed on to act as exclusive supplier of both GMP LaNeo MDMA and Engineering MDMA to Revive Therapeutics (CSE:RVV) (OTCQB: RVVTF). On Friday, February 3, Revive Therapeutics announced a licensing agreement with Pharmather Holdings to license their microneedle patch technology with MDMA.
“As countries like Australia move to allow the use of MDMA as a therapeutic molecule for the treatment of mental health disorders like PTSD, new drug product forms will be crucial,” said Nick Kadysh, CEO of PharmAla. “We’re proud to be able to offer our engineering MDMA to Revive in their development of an MDMA microneedle patch, and to ultimately supply them with LaNeo GMP MDMA as their development accelerates into human use.”
PharmAla is the first publicly traded company to manufacture GMP MDMA, and is the first company to make available to customers two clinical-grade Psychedelic APIs. PharmAla is the only publicly-traded company to have completed manufacturing of GMP MDMA, and is a registered supplier to customers on 3 different continents. PharmAla is also the exclusive global reseller for GMP Psilocybin produced by Mindset Pharma, making it the only company currently retailing two clinical-grade psychedelic APIs.
“Securing the supply of MDMA from PharmAla allows us to confidently advance our upcoming product and clinical development plans with our MDMA microneedle patch for mental health and abuse disorders,” said Michael Frank, CEO of Revive Therapeutics.
Customers interested in acquiring MDMA or Psilocybin for either preclinical development or regulated human use should contact PharmAla’s Head of Sales, David Purcell, at [email protected].
