VANCOUVER, BC, May 19, 2022 /CNW/ - PharmAla Biotech (CSE: MDMA) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with SABI Mind Inc. which will allow for its GMP MDMA to be administered to patients at SABI Mind's Healing Centres. SABI Mind is a leading and rapidly growing psychedelic clinic and research organization that provides psychedelic-assisted therapies in Calgary and at upcoming locations in Edmonton and Victoria.
"We're very pleased to announce this supply agreement with PharmAla to increase access to psychedelic-assisted therapies for patients in need", says Philippe Lucas PhD, President at SABI Mind. "Research has shown MDMA to be a safe and effective treatment for PTSD, end of life anxiety, and other treatment-resistant mental health issues, and our clinical team is looking forward to working with patients, Health Canada and the highly qualified team at PharmAla to provide MDMA-based treatments to authorized patients."
Through this agreement, PharmAla will provide GMP, clinical-grade MDMA to SABI Mind, subject to regulatory approval. The MDMA will come from PharmAla's GMP MDMA value chain, the first to be established in North America. As part of the agreement, PharmAla will have a right to access anonymized patient data collected during treatment by SABI Mind.
"I have long respected SABI and their principals for operating at high ethical and regulatory standards. Their work on developing the Canadian Psychedelic Survey prove that they are true academic leaders in the psychedelics industry," said Nick Kadysh, PharmAla's CEO. "As such, I think this is a natural partnership for both of our companies, and should allow for SABI Mind to expand their current offerings of psychedelic-assisted therapies"
