Mydecine Innovations (NEO: MYCO) (OTC: MYCOF) (FSE: 0NFA), a biotechnology company aiming to transform the treatment of mental health and addiction disorders, has successfully synthesized multiple short-acting MDMA analogs and has filed a patent covering these novel molecules. Experts at Mydecine specifically designed the family of analogs, which has been named MYCO-006, to have a shorter half-life than traditional MDMA. The patent application has been filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization. Often referred to as ecstasy, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA, is a synthetic drug that acts as a stimulant and hallucinogen. Mydecine has been working with the substance, having filed a provisional patent application for a family of MDMA-like compounds last year that was designed to reduce harm and improve safety compared to the traditional drug. According to the company, research that shows MDMA has the potential to make therapy of all types more effective as it has been shown to increase feelings of well-being and interpersonal trust while decreasing feelings of fear and defensiveness. However, one of the challenges of using the substance in therapy is that the effects of the drug last eight hours or longer; Mydecine believes that in order to make treatments accessible to the majority of the population, shorter-acting medicine might be more safe and effective in some situations. According to the announcement, the company is hoping to decrease the half-life of MDMA, resulting in treatments that can be easily repeated at a typical healthcare facility, making the treatments more accessible and affordable. “For these treatment modalities to be adopted and accepted by the general medical community, there must be a drug product that can be administered at existing clinics and hospitals in less time, and that will be reimbursed by insurance providers. We believe shortening the half life of MDMA is an important necessary step to making this possible,” said Mydecine Innovations CEO Josh Bartch in the press release. “Considering the incredible efficacy data being published on MDMA, and the frequent effect of boosting trust and well-being, we are incredibly excited about the potential to increase health equity for the large population in need with our MYCO-006 family of novel molecules.”
