Tel Aviv, Israel / Vancouver, Canada, Feb. 05, 2024 -- Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq, CSE: CMND), (FSE: CWY) (“Clearmind” or the "company"), a biotech company focused on discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve major under-treated health problems, announced today that it has been granted divisional patent approval by the China National Intellectual Property Administration.
The granting of this latest patent establishes both the company's patent protection around its flagship molecule as well as its extensive IP protection in the psychedelic space. Clearmind’s IP portfolio consists of fifteen utility patent families, including patents and applications having method of use and composition of matter claims which includes 24 pending patent applications and 27 granted patents in major jurisdictions such as the US, Europe, China, and India.
"We are proud to receive once again recognition of our innovative treatment for binge behaviors. This approval is a major milestone and significantly expands our IP protection as a leader in psychedelic-derived therapeutics,” said Clearmind’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Adi Zuloff-Shani. “In various pre-clinical studies, carried out during the past 2 years, MEAI has demonstrated its ability to regulate binge behaviors, addiction and other mental health disorders. We believe these strong results demonstrate the significant potential of the MEAI molecule for various indications.”
MEAI is a new psychoactive molecule that reduces desire to consume alcoholic beverages and exerts a slight euphoric, alcohol-like experience with potential to change the lives of millions who struggle to drink in moderation. Clearmind’s MEAI-based flagship treatment focuses on Alcohol Use Disorder, which is incredibly common. It varies from mild to excessive and is characterized by a person’s inability to restrict their alcohol consumption, despite negative social, occupational, or health consequences. Clearmind’s MEAI may also be used to treat binge drinking, which can be a deadly addiction for some.
