Canadian At-Home Microdose Psilocybin Clinical Trial Finalized, Here Are The Details

Biopharma company Apex Labs Ltd. has completed one of the first take-home microdose psilocybin clinical trials, meeting all study endpoints over a two-month period with no adverse events reported.

CEO Tyler Powell called it a clinical milestone and said he’s certain it will help the company’s position as a first mover in take-home psilocybin treatment while advancing its commitment to treating “the substantial unmet need” within the Veteran community. 

The Health-Canada-approved study, which began in January and completed patient dosing on March 29, seeks safety, efficacy and tolerability of take-home proprietary GMP-compliant synthetic psilocybin APEX-52 in veterans with PTSD-related depression.
