PharmAla Biotech Registers Trademark for MDMA

The Company's clinical-grade GMP MDMA product is now known as "Laneo"

VANCOUVER,BC, June 24, 2022 /CNW/ - PharmAla Biotech (CSE: MDMA) has registered a trademark for its clinical-grade MDMA product, which shall be marketed as Laneo MDMA. PharmAla is currently the only publicly-traded company to have developed a full manufacturing value chain for MDMA.

"While MDMA is a generic drug, there's a huge difference between illicit drug manufacture and our clinical-grade product. Only one is appropriate for use in scientific research: Laneo MDMA," said Nick Kadysh, CEO of PharmAla Biotech. "With this trademark registration, PharmAla continues to establish itself as the leader in MDMA manufacture, research, and development."

A number of customers have already made deposits for Laneo MDMA, and the company anticipates initial product deliveries to be made in Fall of 2022. Laneo MDMA is initially available to customers in both a 40mg formulated clinical trial capsule and as pure Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) which can be compounded by a qualified pharmacist. In the future, a range of drug product formulations can be developed.

"We're speaking to customers every day who are excited to initiate clinical trials with MDMA – but they are unable to do so because up until now, they didn't have access to clinical trial supply of drug product," said David Purcell, Director of Sales at PharmAla Biotech. "PharmAla Biotech's Laneo MDMA is the answer."
