FSD Pharma (NASDAQ: HUGE) (CSE: HUGE) (FRA: 0K9A), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to building a portfolio of innovative assets and biotech solutions to address ailments affecting millions worldwide, today announced its submission of a Clinical Trial Application (“CTA”) for a planned phase-1 clinical trial for Lucid-MS, a candidate for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (“MS”). “This is an exciting time for our company, shareholders and, most importantly, for the MS community,” said Dr. Lakshmi Kotra, CEO of Lucid Psycheceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of FSD Pharma. “Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease without any cure, relegating patients and caregivers to significantly lower quality of life. There is an intense effort for disease-modifying treatments to address unmet needs especially for the treatment of progressive MS, and potentially that are non-immunomodulatory. Lucid-MS is a promising first-in-class agent with a novel mechanism of action with a potential to address progressive stages of the disease. Lucid-MS is non-immunomodulatory in its mechanisms of action based on current evidence. We are optimistic about the potential of Lucid-MS and we are eager to initiate this clinical trial taking this one step closer to the patients.”
