Cybin Inc. (NYSE American:CYBN) (NEO:CYBN) (“Cybin” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to revolutionizing mental healthcare by developing new and innovative psychedelic-based treatment options, today announced that its abstract describing a comprehensive structure-activity relationship study of a series of novel serotonergic phenethylamines has been selected for presentation at the Neuropsychiatric Drug Development Summit taking place October 11-12 in Boston, MA.
The abstract, entitled “Structure-activity of 2C-X psychedelics to develop a novel 5-HT2A receptor full agonist with therapeutic potential,” summarizes the studies, which identified multiple potential compounds of therapeutic potential with attractive drug-like characteristics, including good safety profile, high oral bioavailability and brain penetration.
“We are extremely pleased that our abstract was selected for presentation, as this is foundational research that will inform the selection of a potential future development candidate. The Neuropsychiatric Drug Development Summit is a unique opportunity to engage with innovators in neuropsychiatry and to share ideas that ultimately drive the field forward."
“There has been very little exploration of the therapeutic potential of 2C-X phenethylamines.“We are therefore eager to evaluate these new compounds to gain a fuller understanding of their pharmacology, mechanisms of action, and their potential to address unmet medical needs.”
Abstract Title: Structure-activity of 2C-X psychedelics to develop a novel 5-HT2A receptor full agonist with therapeutic potential
Date and Time: Wednesday, October 11, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. ET
Authors: Alex Nivorozhkin, Geoffrey B. Varty, Clinton E. Canal, Ken Avery, Joshua A. Hartsel, Michael E. Morgan, Tina A. Mueller, Erik Stang, Michael G. Palfreyman
At the Summit, Cybin will also moderate a Psychedelic Workshop titled, “Making Psychedelic Clinical Trials a Reality: Mitigating Practical Burdens of Time, Investment & Reimbursement.” This workshop will explore key topics such as optimizing clinical trial design, addressing the need for monitoring in psychedelic trials, and the potential therapeutic advantages and durability of short-acting psychedelic compounds. The session will also highlight Cybin’s approach to developing novel second-generation psychedelic therapeutics and Cybin’s EMBARK for Clinical Trials (“EMBARKCT”), a streamlined facilitator training program designed to support scalability for multisite, global clinical trials.
