Revive Closes Psilocin Pharma Acquisition, Releases Psilocybin Patent Details

Revive Therapeutics (CSE: RVV) has completed its previously announced acquisition of Psilocin Pharma Corp, a specialty psychedelic pharma corporation that is focused on the development of psilocybin-based solutions for unmet medical needs which includes rare and orphan indications.

The transaction was valued at $2.75 million, and was satisfied via the issuance of common shares of Revive Therapeutics at a price per share of $0.05, of which a portion have already been issued and placed into escrow.

Psilocin Pharma has developed a number of patent pending formulations and solutions that utilize the active compound psilocybin, with the patents also protecting the process of formulation. The company has developed several formulations to date which include sublingual sprays, breath strips, gel caps, tablets, and capsules. The formulations work with both natural and synthetic psilocybin, and are precisely dosed.

Due to the nature of the formulations, clinical research will be performed, which will be required to go through US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. The targeted research is currently focused on the treatment of depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder and a number of other diseases. The company intends to take advantage of a number of incentives offered by the FDA, which includes orphan drug, fast track, breakthrough therapy and rare pediatric disease designations, and will prioritize clinical research that has potential for voucher approval. The formulations are expected to be complimentary to Revive’s current portfolio of pharmaceutical formulations, which includes its cannabinoid-based formulation focused on autoimmune hepatitis, which has FDA orphan drug designation.

Provisional patents have been filed that cover the nature of production of the formulations to protect the firms intellectual property, including in the aforementioned delivery systems. The company also has a patent pending portfolio of extraction and crystallization methods for psilocybin.
