FSD Pharma (NASDAQ: HUGE) (CSE: HUGE) (FRA: 0K9A), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to building a portfolio of innovative assets and biotech solutions for the treatment of challenging neurodegenerative, inflammatory and metabolic disorders, announced that its Australian entity, FSD Pharma Australia Pty Ltd., has been approved to move forward with a key phase 2 clinical trial. The approval comes from the Alfred Ethics Committee in Australia, and the trial is designed to evaluate FSD Pharma’s Lucid-201 as a novel drug candidate for the potential treatment of major depressive disorder (“MDD”). Lucid-Psych is being developed outside of Australia by Lucid Psycheceuticals Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of FSD Pharma; inside the country, Lucid-Psych is developed by FSD Pharma Australia Pty Ltd. “Psychoactive molecules as new therapeutics for depression and other mental disorders represent some of the most exciting areas of clinical research in healthcare today,” said FSD Pharma Australia Pty CEO Dr. Lakshmi Kotra in the press release. “Today’s standard of care is prescribing antidepressants that merely mask the symptoms and are well documented to have a bevy of potential negative side effects. Hundreds of millions of people globally need new, safer, accessible and more effective options to redefine the front-line approach by getting to the root of the disorder and how it is currently treated. As we initiate the clinical stage for Lucid-Psych, our clinical team is optimistic that our novel drug candidate in a unique dosage form will be safe and tolerated.”
