Clearmind Medicine Granted Patent Approval in Hong Kong for its Binge Behaviors Treatment

Vancouver, Canada, June 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq: CMND), (FSE: CWY0) (“Clearmind” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biotech company focused on discovery and development of novel psychedelic-derived therapeutics to solve major under-treated health problems, announces advancement in its proprietary MEAI- based binge behavior regulator program through the granting of patent approval in Hong Kong by the Hong Kong Patent Office  

The allowed claims are directed, among others to use a primary amine aminoindan compound to regulate binge behavior. This includes primary amine aminoindan compounds beyond 5-methoxy-2-aminoindan (MEAI), the company’s innovative psychedelic molecule.

This latest patent builds upon Clearmind’s broad IP protection in the psychedelic space, which now includes 28 granted patents across 18 patent families, with patents granted in major jurisdictions such as the US, Europe, China, India, and now Hong Kong.

MEAI is a new psychoactive molecule that reduces the desire to consume alcoholic beverages and provides a slight euphoric, alcohol-like experience, with the potential to change the lives of millions who struggle to drink in moderation. Clearmind’s MEAI-based flagship treatment focuses on Alcohol Use Disorder and weight loss, which is incredibly common and ranges from mild to severe. It is characterized by a person’s inability to restrict their alcohol consumption, despite negative social, occupational, or health consequences. Clearmind’s MEAI may also be used to treat binge drinking, a potentially deadly addiction.
