NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mind Medicine (MindMed) Inc. (NASDAQ: MNMD), (NEO: MMED), (the “Company” or "MindMed"), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel product candidates to treat brain health disorders, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

We’re coming up on a critical period for MindMed as we are close to wrapping up enrollment in our Phase 2b study of MM-120 for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder,” said Robert Barrow, Chief Executive Officer and Director of MindMed. “Our ability to enroll a study of this size in such an efficient manner stands out in the field and speaks to the remarkable quality of our R&D team. We are also excited to have licensed Catalent’s Zydis ODT technology for use with MM-120 which we believe significantly bolsters the differentiation and protectability of our MM-120 product candidate while potentially offering enhanced bioavailability and more rapid absorption, which may lead to a shorter treatment session. We could not be more excited about the progress we have made to date and the numerous upcoming milestones in the months ahead.

Business Update

  • The Company reiterates its guidance for its cash runway, which is expected to fund its current operating plan into the first half of 2025.
  • MindMed’s management team will participate in the H.C. Wainwright 25th Annual Global Investment Conference that is being held in New York, NY from September 11-13, 2023 as well as the 2023 Cantor Global Healthcare Conference being held in New York, NY from September 26-28, 2023.

Recent Highlights and Anticipated Upcoming Milestones:

Phase 2b study evaluating MM-120 for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) remains on track for topline readout in Q4 2023.

  • Patient enrollment is expected to be completed by the end of Q3 2023 with topline results for the primary endpoint expected to be announced in Q4 2023. Based on a recent review of the Company’s statistical assumptions, the target patient enrollment for the trial has been lowered from 200 to 180 participants while maintaining the statistical power (approximately 90%) to achieve the study’s objectives.
  • The primary objective of the study is to determine the dose-response relationship of four doses of MM-120 versus placebo as measured by the change in Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A) from baseline to week 4.
  • In August 2023, MindMed announced an exclusive licensing agreement with Catalent for its patented Zydis® ODT technology for use with MM-120. The Company is also in the process of initiating a Phase 1 pharmacokinetics bridging study to support advancement of the MM-120 ODT formulation into pivotal clinical trials.

Phase 2a study evaluating MM-120 for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) continues to advance toward a topline readout in Q4 2023 / Q1 2024.

  • The Company’s Phase 2a proof-of-concept trial for the treatment of ADHD is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of repeated low-dose MM-120 administration in 52 patients.
  • The study is over 80% enrolled and on track for completion in Q4 2023.
  • The Company expects to present topline results in Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.

Advancing development of MM-402 (also referred to as R(-)-MDMA) for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) into first clinical trial in Q4 2023.

  • The Company plans to initiate its first clinical trial of MM-402 in Q4 2023. This Phase 1 study is intended to characterize the tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of MM-402, and to evaluate early signals of efficacy to support the Company’s approach in targeting core symptoms of ASD.
  • University Hospital Basel (UHB) in Switzerland, the Company’s collaborator, is currently enrolling participants in a Phase 1 investigator-initiated trial of R(-)-MDMA, S(+)-MDMA and R/S-MDMA in healthy volunteers. This trial is designed to assess the tolerability, pharmacokinetics and acute subjective, physiological and endocrine effects of the three molecules. The Company anticipates topline results to be presented in the first half of 2024.
  • In June 2023, the Company presented results from a pre-clinical study of MM-402 in a model of ASD, titled “MM-402, R(−)-3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, Demonstrates Prosocial and Therapeutic-Like Effects in Fmr1 Knockout mice, a Preclinical Model of Autism Spectrum Disorder (due to Fragile X syndrome)” at the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology (ASCP) 2023 Annual Meeting.

Collaborations and Partnerships

The Company continues to support its ongoing collaboration with the Liechti Lab at UHB in Switzerland. MindMed has exclusive worldwide rights to data, compounds and patent rights associated with UHB’s research on lysergide and other psychedelic compounds, including data from preclinical studies and investigator-initiated clinical trials.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Cash and Cash Equivalents Balance. As of June 30, 2023, MindMed had cash and cash equivalents totaling $116.9 million compared to $142.1 million as of December 31, 2022. The Company believes its available cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund its operating requirements into the first half of 2025.

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities. The net cash used in operating activities was $27.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023, compared to $28.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Research and Development (R&D). R&D expenses were $14.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2023, compared to $9.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $5.5 million. The increase was primarily due to increases of $4.4 million in expenses related to clinical research for the MM-120 GAD study, $0.8 million in preclinical activities, $0.6 million in internal personnel costs as a result of increasing R&D capacity, and $0.2 million in connection with various external R&D collaborations, partially offset by a decrease of $0.5 million in expenses related to our MM-110 program, and a decrease of $0.1 million related to our MM-402 program.

General and Administrative (G&A). G&A expenses were $14.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2023, compared to $7.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $6.8 million. The increase was attributable to professional services fees and expenses related to our proxy contest in connection with our 2023 annual general meeting of shareholders, and additional costs to support the growth of our business.

Net Loss. Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 was $29.1 million, compared to $17.0 million for the same period in 2022.
