Pα+ Psychedelic Patent Analysis: February 2024

In this issue of the Psychedelic Patent Analysis, we look at IP and exclusivity in MDMA drug development across Lykos, atai, MindMed, Arcadia, and PharmAla. We also look at Terran’s allowed claims to certain psilocybin solid forms.

General Overview

We added 22 PCTs and 21 US patent applications focused on psychedelics to our tracker in February 2024. New entries came from the likes of Johns Hopkins, Transcend Therapeutics, Gilgamesh, Mindset Pharma, Yale University, and more. You can explore these new additions and updates via the interactive tables in this post.

As we discuss below, these include enantiomers, non-racemic mixtures, and new prodrugs, each with their own potential commercial and therapeutic advantages.
