Nova Mentis and KGK Science Form Tactical Partnership

The Companies Plan to Jointly Submit a Psilocybin Clinical Trial Application to Health Canada

VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 27, 2022 /CNW/ - Nova Mentis Life Science Corp. (CSE: NOVA) (FSE: HN3Q) (OTCQB: NMLSF) ("NOVA" or the "Company"), a biotechnology company and global leader in first-in-class psilocybin-based therapeutics and complementary diagnostics for neuroinflammatory disorders is proud to announce that the Company has formed a tactical partnership with KGK Science Inc. ("KGK"), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wellbeing Digital Sciences Inc. (NEO: MEDI), to develop its psychedelic psilocybin drug portfolio in Canada. KGK is a leading North American contract research organization based in London, Ontario that primarily provides high-quality clinical research trials with a focus on the nutraceutical, cannabis and emerging psychedelic industries. Both Companies plan to jointly submit a clinical trial application ("CTA") to Health Canada for a Phase 2A clinical study evaluating psilocybin microdose therapy for fragile X syndrome.

"NOVA and KGK have synergistic capabilities that will facilitate submission of the CTA to Health Canada and achieve, in my opinion, no objection to this unprecedented clinical study," stated Dr. Marvin S. Hausman MD, Chairman of NOVA's Scientific Advisory Board. "In our discussions with KGK, we realized early on that our two teams had the ability to navigate the entire lifecycle journey of our novel psilocybin microdose treatment of fragile X syndrome from a Phase 2A clinical study to drug approval and commercialization."

"I am delighted to work with NOVA's team to advance this novel initiative. NOVA's microdose approach aims to address an unmet need that promises to have a significant impact on the lives of families impacted by fragile X syndrome. KGK is proud to be able to contribute and is confident our expertise will guide NOVA to success through the orphan drug pathway," said Najla Guthrie, President and CEO of KGK.

NOVA's research and clinical team initially identified unique opportunities in psychedelic drug development and chose a classic drug development pathway involving careful planning and execution of chemistry, manufacturing and preclinical proof of efficacy studies. The Company's successes to date include but are not limited to:
