GREENWICH, Conn., June 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ceruvia Lifesciences, a leading neurotransformational medicine biopharmaceutical company today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its Investigational New Drug application for a Phase 2 clinical trial to determine the efficacy and safety of synthetic psilocybin (SYNP-101) in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

"With positive preliminary results from a Ceruvia funded pilot Phase 2 study taking place at Yale School of Medicine, we are excited to have received FDA approval to begin our Phase 2 clinical trial to examine the efficacy and safety of psilocybin in treating OCD," said Carey Turnbull, Founder and CEO of Ceruvia Lifesciences. "With few effective treatment options available for the almost 4 million Americans who suffer from OCD, our Phase 2 clinical trial is an important step in helping these patients dramatically improve the quality of their lives."

Ceruvia's Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double blind, active placebo controlled clinical trial will examine the safety and efficacy of synthetic psilocybin (SYNP-101) in treating OCD symptoms. The trial plans to enroll a total of 105 participants who will receive 25mg of SYNP-101 or the active placebo, niaicin. The primary endpoint of the trial is to determine the reduction in OCD symptoms for up to 12 weeks after a single administration of SYNP-101. Efficacy of treatment will be measured using the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale, the most used and validated tool for assessing the clinical severity of OCD symptoms. The trial will commence in the second half of 2022 and will be led by Principal Investigators Dr. Benjamin Kelmedi and Dr. Christopher Pittenger of Yale University School of Medicine.
