Tryp Therapeutics (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing psilocybin-based compounds for diseases with unmet medical needs, has submitted an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”). The clinical trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy of TRYP’s clinical candidate, TRP-8802, for the treatment of patients with eating disorders. TRYP is working with Jennifer Miller, MD, from the University of Florida, to conduct the trial as well as evaluate its oral formulation of synthetic psilocybin, TRP-8802, in combination with psychotherapy. The IND application outlines specifics in regard to the safety of the drug product as well as the protocol for the study. Tryp anticipates starting the study later this year if approved by the FDA. “This IND submission marks the most important milestone the company has achieved to date and will be critical in identifying patient responses to the active ingredient, consistent with that of our proprietary drug candidate, TRP-8803, that will be used in Phase 2b trials and beyond,” said Tryp Therapeutics CEO and chair Greg McKee in the press release. “This is the first of several IND filings we expect to make in the coming months in support of our work to address various chronic pain and eating disorder indications, and we are eager to begin enrolling our first patients in multiple Phase 2a trials later this year.”
