  • European patent provides composition of matter and medical use protection for the Company’s proprietary deuterated psilocybin analog and deuterated DMT programs 
  • New European patent further strengthens intellectual property portfolio, which now includes 33 granted patents and over 170 pending applications 

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Cybin Inc. (NYSE American:CYBN) (NEO:CYBN) (“Cybin” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to revolutionizing mental healthcare by developing new and innovative psychedelic-based treatment options, today announced that the European Patent Office (“EP”) has granted a patent protecting Cybin’s proprietary deuterated psilocybin analog and N, N-dimethyltryptamine (“DMT”) programs.

EP patent no. 4,031,529 provides composition of matter protection for certain deuterated tryptamine compounds, including deuterated psilocybin analogs within the CYB003 program and deuterated analogs of DMT within Cybin’s DMT program, as well as their medical use.

“Maintaining a secure intellectual property position is fundamental to our development strategy as we continue to advance our novel molecules and optimize their therapeutic benefits,” said Doug Drysdale, Chief Executive Officer of Cybin. “Following quickly on from the two recently announced U.S. patents granted in respect of our deuterated DMT program, this European patent further strengthens our intellectual property protection around our deuterated DMT and deuterated psilocybin programs. With 33 granted patents and over 170 pending applications, Cybin now has one of the most robust intellectual property portfolios in the psychedelic drug development sector.”

Cybin’s deuterated psilocybin analog program, CYB003, has completed dosing in a Phase 2 trial in major depressive disorder (“MDD”). Interim findings have demonstrated that CYB003 led to a robust psychedelic response in participants at low doses while maintaining a safe and well-tolerated therapeutic profile.

Cybin’s proprietary novel deuterated DMT compounds, CYB004 and SPL028, are each currently in Phase I clinical trials. CYB004 and SPL028 target an extended DMT psychedelic experience while retaining a short-duration drug profile that could provide optimized dose formulations for different administration routes and distinct therapeutic benefits for patients. Preliminary findings from the studies demonstrate that IV CYB004 and SPL028 elicit a psychedelic experience of less than 1 hour and are well-tolerated.

The Company expects to report topline data from its deuterated psilocybin and DMT programs in the fourth quarter of 2023.
