    PharmaTher and TSRL Enter into Co-Development Agreement For Microneedle Patch Delivery Technology for Psychedelics and Antivirals

    TORONTO, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PharmaTher Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “PharmaTher”) (OTCQB: PHRRF) (CSE: PHRM), a clinical-stage psychedelics biotech company and TSRL, Inc. (“TSRL”), a company focused on developing microneedle patches for the delivery of antivirals for the treatment of influenza, are pleased to announce that PharmaTher and TSRL (collectively the “Companies”) entered into a Co-Development Agreement to jointly develop a microneedle array patch with the aim to control the manufacturing and supply of microneedle patches for the Companies respective clinical and commercial drug programs. PharmaTher and TSRL share the commitment to commercialize a patented hydrogel-forming microneedle patch delivery technology licensed from Queens University of Belfast. PharmaTher is focused on incorporating psychedelics (i.e. ketamine, psilocybin, DMT, MDMA and LSD) and TSRL is focused on incorporating antiviral medications (i.e. Zanamivir, other antiviral therapeutics and vaccines) in a microneedle patch with the potential to improve on the safety (i.e. fewer side effects), efficacy (i.e. bioavailability, optimized dosing regimen including continuous system delivery) and compliance (i.e. storage, distribution and self-administration) of these compounds that currently must be taken orally, inhaled, injected and intravenously. TSRL is comprised of a team of pharma industry veterans with deep drug development expertise, ranging from discovery and preclinical development to clinical, regulatory, and IP strategy development. TSRL’s facility is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is positioned as a preclinical accelerator for anti-infective therapeutic product concepts, with an emphasis on improving dosing regimens and outcomes of approved product with suboptimal market uptake. TSRL has performed in-house optimization of the Zanamivir drug-device combination product, and initiated tech transfer for scale-up and manufacturing to toxicology and clinical supplies to a GMP contract research lab. TSRL has successfully conducted a pre-IND meeting with the US FDA and achieved agreement with the agency on their proposed 505(b)2 product development plans. Fabio Chianelli, CEO of PharmaTher commented: “We are very excited to collaborate with TSRL as they have de-risked certain technical and manufacturing aspects of the microneedle patch and by sharing our resources it will allow PharmaTher to expedite the clinical and commercial development of the microneedle patch with ketamine and other psychedelics. Also, the collaboration will ensure control over the manufacturing and supply of microneedle patches for not only both of our respective product programs, but also it may unlock future commercial partnering opportunities with pharmaceutical companies seeking a microneedle patch delivery system.” Dr. Elke Lipka, CEO of TSRL commented: “We are delighted to join forces with PharmaTher, as this collaboration will allow us to execute our respective lean development strategies for the manufacturing of the microneedle array and ultimately the array/drug reservoir combination product. In addition to increased cost effectiveness, there is substantial strategic overlap between our two organization with respect to the regulatory strategy for our product candidates. Microneedle-enabled drug delivery is at the cusp of becoming one of the most promising approaches to achieve carefully tuned systemic delivery of therapeutics and vaccine.” Microneedle-enhanced intradermal delivery is an elegant, efficient and painless method for increasing the skin permeation of many drugs, including psychedelics, antiviral therapeutics and vaccines. Transdermal delivery systems offer a number of advantages over inhalation and IV administration. Our approach consists of a 2-part system comprised of a drug-loaded reservoir that is placed on top of the hydrogel microneedle array. After administration into the skin (i.e. intradermal delivery), the microneedles become hydrated and swell, creating pores for the reservoir to release the drug content into the tissue over the treatment course. Upon removal, the needles are intact, yet rounded, and do not need to be disposed of as sharps. The drug directly enters the systemic circulation, circumventing absorption and first-pass barriers typical for oral delivery. Our studies show that with transdermal delivery, systemic drug concentrations are reached within minutes after administration and are maintained over multiple days. This system addresses a major unmet need by offering greater ease of administration, inclusion of patients with pre-existing conditions that exempt them from oral or inhalation dosing. It avoids syringe needles, eliminating pain and patient visits to a clinician. We also anticipate that patient compliance will be improved with a self-administered transdermal patch. About TSRL, Inc.

    PharmaTher Collaborates with MediSynergics to Develop Patented Ketamine Formulation for Pain Disorders and to Discover Novel Psychedelic Formulations

    TORONTO, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PharmaTher Holdings Ltd. (the “Company” or “PharmaTher”) (OTCQB: PHRRF) (CSE: PHRM), a clinical-stage psychedelics biotech company, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with MediSynergics, LLC. (“MediSynergics”), a drug discovery company, to develop MediSynergics patented ketamine derivatives for pain and other CNS disorders and to investigate drug discovery and development of next-generation psychedelic derivatives, such as psilocybin, N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (“DMT”), 3,4-Methyl​enedioxy​methamphetamine (“MDMA”) and lysergic acid diethylamide (“LSD”), mescaline, and ibogaine. PharmaTher and MediSynergics will initially collaborate to advance the research of MediSynergics patented ketamine derivatives as an alternative to opioid medications for pain disorders using predictive preclinical animal models. Efficacy of the patented ketamine derivatives were demonstrated to be comparable or better than ketamine when tested in a murine capsaicin inflammatory pain model. The patented ketamine compounds are derivatives discovered by MediSynergics of which the majority were determined in preclinical in vitro binding affinity studies to not bind to the NMDA receptor, suggesting they may have fewer side effects that have limited ketamine’s use as a pain treatment. In parallel, MediSynergics, out of its research and controlled-substance licensed laboratory, is planning to evaluate novel formulations of psychedelics for clinical development to advance through the FDA regulatory pathway. MediSynergics was founded over eleven years ago by two former Pfizer drug discovery researchers, Mr. Dennis Godek, M.A., CEO and Mr. Harry R. Howard, M.S., CSO, having extensive experience in CNS and infectious disease therapeutic areas. Since then, MediSynergics has secured 12 patents, two provisional patents in the U.S., and has discovered ketamine derivatives that potentially have changed the pharmacology of ketamine. Mr. Howard, Chief Scientific Officer of MediSynergics, co-discovered the $1 billion atypical antipsychotic drug ziprasidone (Geodon™, Zeldox™) which is used to treat schizophrenia and mania. Mr. Howard also developed expertise in the design of novel compounds to treat CNS disorders including depression and ADHD and is listed as an inventor of 58 U.S. patents issued to Pfizer Inc. and named on 71 U.S. and Worldwide patents. Fabio Chianelli, Chief Executive Officer of PharmaTher, said, “We are excited to work with MediSynergics in the discovery and development of novel psychedelic derivatives and formulations for pain and CNS disorders. This drug discovery and development collaboration complement our current strategy of finding novel uses and delivery forms of psychedelics by diversifying our product pipeline and building our product lifecycle plans with robust intellectual property and know-how, as well as strengthening our drug discovery and development capabilities with experienced chemists that have FDA drug approvals on their resume. We continue to focus on our core competencies in quickly advancing our ketamine programs to clinical studies and developing our novel microneedle patch for the intradermal delivery of psychedelics. The addition of our drug discovery division focused on novel psychedelic formulations uniquely position us as an up-and-coming player in prescription-based psychedelics for unmet medical needs and partnering opportunities.” Dennis Godek, Chief Executive of MediSynergics, said, “We are extremely pleased to be working with PharmaTher to help advance the development of ketamine derivatives and the future potential of novel psychedelic derivatives and formulations for treating CNS disorders of unmet medical need. The benefits of ketamine for treatment resistant depression are already being realized by patients with FDA approval in 2019. It is hoped that the discovery and development of novel psychedelics and formulations will greatly benefit patients suffering from debilitating neurological illnesses.” Under the collaboration agreement, PharmaTher and MediSynergics will share the results of the ketamine program and will work toward exclusive licensing of any of the inventions that show potential entering into clinical studies.
