Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – February 2, 2021) – Entheon Biomedical Corp. (CSE: ENBI) (OTC Pink: ENTBF) (FSE: 1XU1) (“Entheon” or the “Company”), a biotechnology company focused on developing psychedelic medicines to treat addiction, provides an update on license amendments issued to its clinical research organization, The Centre for Human Drug Research (CHDR).
Entheon confirms that the CHDR, the Company’s Netherlands-based partner clinical research organization, has received an amendment to its opioid license, enabling it to possess and conduct research with DMT. The opioid license amendment enables the CHDR to accommodate Entheon’s upcoming clinical study, designed to evaluate the pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics and safety of a target-controlled IV infusion of DMT in humans. In addition, CHDR’s partner pharmacy, LUMC, has received its import permit to receive DMT, for testing and formulation work, from Entheon’s Canadian manufacturing partner, Psygen Labs Inc.
“These license amendments are another important step in the launch and execution of our Phase I clinical trial to assess the safety and tolerability of DMT in humans,” said Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Ko. “The ability to import and access clinical grade DMT is integral to the smooth operation of this process, which we are now one step closer to achieving.”
Entheon announced its clinical trial with the Leiden, Netherlands-based CHDR on December 1, 2020, and expects the trial to begin in Q4 2021.
