- MINDCURE plans to schedule a pre-IND meeting with the FDA for its Desire Project during Q1 2022 with a subsequent Phase 2 trial to begin Q3 2022

As a member of the Digital Therapeutics Alliance, Mind Cure Health (CSE: MCUR) (OTCQX: MCURF) (FRA: 6MH) delivers digital therapeutics (“DTx”) that are evidence-based interventions driven by high-quality software to prevent, manage, and treat medical disorders or diseases. DTx can be used independently or with other medications, devices, or therapies, to optimize outcomes and patient care. MINDCURE is a leader in advanced proprietary technology and research centered around psychedelics and is currently advancing multiple programs and products to this end.
The attested progress and plans for the immediate future were detailed in an operational update regarding the strategic initiatives of the company’s operating segments – MINDCURE Research and MINDCURE Technology (https://nnw.fm/Gec8Q).
MINDCURE Research’s update included updates on both The Desire Project and Ibogaine. The company has completed its draft research protocol for the use of MDMA and psychotherapy to treat female hypoactive desire disorder (The Desire Project) and expects a pre-IND meeting with the FDA in Q1 2022 and a subsequent Phase 2 trial to commence in Q3 2022.
Earlier in 2021, MINDCURE announced that it would begin chemical synthesis routes to produce fully synthetic ibogaine. In July 2021, MINDCURE applied for patents on two routes for full chemical synthesis and initiated the production of Good Laboratory Practice (“GLP”), leading to the production of Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) ibogaine. The company expects to have a GLP supply available for its research partners in Q2 2022.
In addition to The Desire Project and its ibogaine efforts, MINDCURE is continuing to explore its options to expand its drug pipeline. There are two candidate selection programs currently underway for what is internally known as MC-106 and MC-808. More information will be released in Q2 2022.
MINDCURE Technology also released an update on its DTx technology, iSTRYM, and its release as a minimum viable product (“MVP”) into partner clinics across North America. Although North America is the largest market for DTx, the global market was valued at $3.4 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 31.4% to reach $13.1 billion by 2026 (https://nnw.fm/t0E8E). The market’s expansion can potentially bring multiple opportunities for growth for the company, given the iSTRYM’s capability to easily scale at a global level as a drug-agnostic digital tool and distribution platform.
MINDCURE’s unique and diversified approach works with multiple touchpoints, including technology, research, and drug supply and partnerships. The distribution component of its platform was kicked off recently, via the company’s partnership with Awakn Life Sciences (NEO: AWKN) (OTCQB: AWKNF), a biotech company with clinical operations researching, developing, and delivering psychedelic medicine to treat addiction. Under the agreement, MINDCURE will leverage iSTRYM to distribute Awakn’s ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for Alcohol Use Disorder in the United States and Canada.
