VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 15, 2023 /CNW/ - Numinus Wellness Inc. ("Numinus" or the "Company") (TSX: NUMI) (OTCQX: NUMIF), a mental health care company advancing traditional and innovative behavioral health treatments with a focus on safe, evidence-based psychedelic-assisted therapies, is proud to announce that its research site, Cedar Clinical Research (CCR), has been chosen as one of multiple sites for Beckley Psytech's cutting-edge Phase 2b clinical trial for Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD).
The study aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different doses of Beckley Psytech's proprietary intranasal formulation of synthetic 5-Methoxy-N, N-Dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) – known as BPL-003 – as a potential therapy for TRD. It follows Beckley Psytech's receipt of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) first-ever Investigational New Drug (IND) approval for a Phase 2b study of a short-acting psychedelic compound in February this year. CCR's selection as a clinical research site for this trial further establishes it as a leader in psychedelic clinical research and builds upon its commitment to forging collaborations that explore new mental health solutions.
"We are excited to be supporting Beckley Psytech in their clinical trial endeavors. Such partnerships are not just a reflection of CCR's dedication to advancing the frontiers of mental health research; they also spotlight our capabilities and the world-class infrastructure that positions us as a sought-after clinical research hub. Our collaboration with Beckley Psytech underscores a shared vision and commitment to bringing the highest research standards to psychedelic clinical trials. With each ground-breaking project, we further cement our global standing, always driven by innovation, integrity, and excellence."
Numinus and CCR's collaboration with Beckley Psytech reflects a unified drive for innovation in psychedelic-assisted therapies. As leaders in mental health solutions, they eagerly anticipate the transformative insights this Phase 2b trial will offer to the broader medical community.
