SciSparc Announces Initiation of Patient Recruitment for its Clinical Trial with SCI-210 in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

The clinical trial for SCI-210 will be conducted in Israel, after which the company aims to move forward with the commercialization process of SCI-210 first in the Israeli market

TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SciSparc Ltd. (Nasdaq: SPRC) ("Company" or "SciSparc"), a specialty clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on the development of therapies to treat disorders of the central nervous system, today announces the initiation of patient recruitment for its clinical trial in children suffering from autism spectrum disorder ("ASD") at Soroka Medical Center in Israel.

The double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled study will be performed using SciSparc's proprietary SCI-210, a combination of cannabidiol (CBD) and CannAmide™(SciSparc’s Palmitoylethanolamide), which is designed to alleviate ASD symptoms. SciSparc will enroll 60 subjects between the ages of five and 18, for 20 weeks, with the purpose of assessing how SCI-210 therapy compares to standard CBD treatment in managing symptoms of ASD.

The Company's goal is to sell SCI-210 first in Israel and then in other countries, subject to obtaining the requisite regulatory approvals.

"The initiation of patient recruitment for this clinical study, that has the potential to address an area of unmet medical need, marks an exciting milestone for the team at SciSparc as it aligns with our mission to improve human health through the development of novel therapies," said SciSparc’s Chief Executive Officer, Oz Adler. “We hope the outcome of the trial will enable the Company to procced with the commercialization process for SCI-210 in Israel."

The trial has three primary efficacy metrics: the Aberrant Behavior Checklist-Community (ABC-C) parent questionnaire; the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (CGI-I) performed by a clinician; and the effective therapeutic dose. The trial was designed in consultation with the National Autism Research Center, the leading research center for autism in Israel.

ASD is a condition related to brain development that impacts how a person perceives and socializes with others, causing problems in social interaction and communication. The term "spectrum" in autism spectrum disorder refers to the wide range of symptoms and severity.
