Israeli Based Biotech Company Clearmind Completes IND-Enabling Studies for CMND-100
December 13th, 2022
Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq,CSE: CMND), (FSE: CWY) (“Clearmind” or the “company“), a biotech company focused on discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve major under treated health problems, today announced it has completed IND-enabling studies on its CMND-100 (MEAI- based) compound aimed at treating alcohol use disorder (AUD), in preparation for its first in-human clinical trial.
An Investigational New Drug (IND) application is required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before commencing clinical studies in humans may initiate. The company is in the process of preparing the IND for its submission to the FDA and the Israeli Ministry of Health.
Previous pre-clinical studies using MEAI demonstrated a high safety profile and indications of a significant dose-dependent effect reducing alcohol consumption in treated animals.
”Upon completion of the IND-enabling studies for our novel drug candidate to treat AUD, we are one step closer to launching our first human clinical trial,” said Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani, Clearmind’s CEO. “We intend to submit our IND request in early 2023 and to start Phase I/IIa clinical trials in the U.S. and Israel.”
“I am very excited about reaching the final stages of our non-clinical program, within timelines and with promising results that will hopefully enable us to initiate our clinical trial soon. This is a very important milestone in the drug development pipeline, and I am very enthusiastic about the near future of MEAI,” said R&D Director, Amit Shwartz.
CMND-100, which is Clearmind’s lead compound, is a novel psychedelic-derived drug candidate, exhibiting compelling evidence that suggests a significant reduction of desire to consume alcoholic beverages- addressing a global unmet need.
AUD is a chronic relapsing brain disorder characterized by impaired ability to control alcohol use despite negative social, occupational, and health consequences. One of the world’s gravest health problems, AUD costs the United States alone an estimated $250 billion each year, and is the third leading preventable cause of death in the country.
CMND-100 is assumed to suppress the decision to consume more alcohol by potentially innervating neural pathways associated with the 5-HT1A receptor that lead to “sensible behavior.”
Clearmind’s intellectual property portfolio includes issued patents in the United States, Europe, China and India covering, among other, the use of CMND-100 in treating AUD.
