VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 26, 2024 / MindBio Therapeutics Corp. (CSE:MBIO)(Frankfurt:WF6), (the “Company” or “MindBio”), a leading biopharmaceutical company in psychiatric medicine development, is delighted to announce positive top line data from its world-first take-home microdosing depression clinical trial using MB22001. The completion of this landmark and highly successful Phase 2a clinical trial is a major inflection point for the Company as it moves to late-stage pharma drug development.

Justin Hanka, Chief Executive Officer of MindBio said, “We are delighted to share that MB22001 showed rapid and statistically significant improvements with 60% reduction in depressive symptoms and 53% of patients experiencing complete remission from depression. The treatment resulted in an impressive mean 14.1 point drop in Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (“MADRS”). These Phase 2 trial results are transformative for the Company as it takes its next steps into late-stage pharma”.

MindBio has achieved a significant milestone as the only organisation in the world that is running multiple clinical trials with Government and Regulatory approvals for take-home use and handling of a psychedelic medicine by trial patients out in the community, specifically a proprietary self-titratable form of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) in microdoses designed for take home use (MB22001).

MindBio has collected tens of thousands of data points, over 3 years from clinical trials including psychometric data, speech analytics, sleep, biometric, activity data, EEG, ECG, PK/PD including DNA sampling. MindBio is building a proprietary treatment model that is scalable, safe and effective and can be tailored to patients as a first line treatment for Depression. Our proprietary drug candidate MB22001 is self-titratable, allowing patients to dose up or down depending on the individual’s tolerance. The Phase 2a clinical trial demonstrated excellent safety, adherence and tolerance profile in doses tested. This was consistent with the Phase 1 trial results.
