Clearmind to Commence Clinical Trial in Alcohol-Use Disorder

Psychedelic drug company, Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq: CMND), has received approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health to commence its Phase 1/2a clinical trial for alcohol use disorder (AUD) patients.

“This is the most important milestone for the company to date and marks our transition to a clinical- stage pharmaceutical company. The Clearmind team has been working tirelessly on the research and development of a novel treatment to the global epidemic of alcoholism. We are eager to continue our work with patients in need of help,” said Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani, CEO of Clearmind Medicine. “We believe that our non-hallucinogenic, psychedelic solution could be the answer to the global need for dedicated and effective treatments for addictions.”

MEAI, the active ingredient in CMND-100, is an innovative, psychoactive and non-hallucinogenic molecule that has been reported to reduce the desire to consume alcoholic beverages, while exerting a slight euphoric alcohol-like experience.

Highlights

Clearmind’s lead product candidate, CMND-100, a proprietary MEAI-based (5-methoxy-2-aminoindane) oral capsule, has been shown to be safe and effective in preclinical studies.

Clearmind will evaluate CMND-100 in a  multinational, multi-center, single and multiple dose tolerability, safety and pharmacokinetic study of CMND-100 in healthy volunteers and AUD subjects.

The study will establish a tolerable dose and evaluate safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CMND-100. It will also look to demonstrate the preliminary efficacy of CMND-100 in reduction of drinking patterns and cravings in individuals with moderate-to-severe AUD.

An estimated 18 million adult Americans have AUD.
