MindMed to Present Data on the Preclinical Activity of MM-402 at the 36th Annual European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress
– Preclinical data in ASD model demonstrate the differences between MM-402 (R-MDMA), S-MDMA and Racemic MDMA with enhanced pro-social effects and reduced hyperactivity –
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, announced today the upcoming presentation of preclinical data of MM-402, the Company’s proprietary form of the R-enantiomer of 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“MDMA”), in a model for autism spectrum disorder (“ASD”) at the 36th Annual ECNP Congress that is being held in Barcelona, Spain from October 7-10, 2023. The Company plans to initiate its first clinical trial of MM-402 in Q4 2023.
The late-breaking poster entitled “MM-402 demonstrates better efficacy than S(+)-3,4-MDMA or (±)-3,4-MDMA in Fmr1 knockout mice, an animal model of autism spectrum disorder” will be presented on Sunday, October 8, 2023 at 12:35 pm CET. This study demonstrated that administration of MM-402 increased social interaction in a characterized preclinical model of ASD. MM-402 exhibited a robust effect on social interaction and was more potent than both S-MDMA and racemic MDMA with reduced hyperactivity effects.
“We are pleased to share the research of our talented scientists to build on our study of novel and promising therapies for brain health disorders. We continue to demonstrate in preclinical models the potential of our MM-402 product candidate to improve pro-social effects while reducing the stimulant activity and other unwanted effects,” said Robert Barrow, Chief Executive Officer and Director of MindMed. “With this further preclinical evidence to support our approach, we remain on track to initiate our Phase 1 clinical trial of MM-402 later this year.”
