With a clear focus on alcohol abuse and binge drinking, Clearmind's first drug candidate addresses very common (and costly) afflictions which to date, have limited solutions.
Clearmind’s Chief Scientific Officer is a prolific inventor of international acclaim. Pair that with a proven leader in the pharmaceutical space and you have a powerful combination.
Clearmind focuses exclusively on IP-protected treatments. With granted patents in the U.S and EP, allowed CN application and a nearly allowed IN application, Clearmind is set to establish its own territory in a competitive space.
MEAI holds the promise to break the binge-drinking vicious cycle by potentially innervating neural pathways such as 5-HT1A which leads to “sensible behavior”.
Pre-clinical in vivo results demonstrate longtail tapering off of activity via oral administration. This may explain the anecdotal reports on the self-limiting property of MEAI—unlike traditional treatments.
The literature shows that 5-HT1A receptors are associated with controlling craving behaviour across the board. This indicates that MEAI may have a wide range of applications beyond binge drinking.
Alchohol Use Disorder
MEAI shows promise for Alcohol Use Disorder, in which an individual cannot limit their alcohol intake despite negative consequences.
MEAI may also be used for binge drinking (described as 4 or more drinks in about 2 hours). 1 in 6 adults binge drink once a week in the US.
