In today’s episode, we will be covering some Massive MindMed news that broke on January 14th that lead me to believe that MindMed might be expanding to psilocybin.
Mindmed stock, MMED on the Canadian NEO market, and MMEDF on the American OTC market led with a press release entitled “MindMed Adds Chief Development Officer with FDA Phase 2 Psilocybin Clinical Trial Experience”. MindMed revealed that the company has added a scientist named Robert Barrow as their Chief Development Officer.
Tucked away in this news release about a hiring decision is a quote which points to a future MindMed project
And that project will be researching the effects of Psilocybin
So up until now, MindMed has focused all their phase 2 trials on LSD and 18-MC, which is a derivative of Ibogaine, while leaving treating maladies with psilocybin to other companies like Compass Pathways (NASDAQ:CMPS).
So, Barrow is bringing with him to MindMed intimate knowledge about the efficacy of psilocybin in treating MDD, as well as dosing data and regime set up.
MindMed (MMED/MMEDF) has some phase 1 trials looking at the safety of psilocybin in conjunction with the Liechti Lab at the University Hospital Basel
and is also comparing psilocybin to LSD in a phase 1 trial. MindMed also has a licence to test psilocybin. However, MindMed has yet to start a trial specifically looking at psilocybin as a medicine..
So does this mean that MindMed’s hiring decision is related to the company’s plans on expanding their clinical trial pipeline to include a psilocybin treatment, sometime in the future? If that speculation turns out to be true, that decision will further expand MindMed’s potential product pipeline as well as the MindMed stock.
