Biomind Labs Completes the Development of the First 5-MeO-DMT Organic Synthesis Scheme for Pharmaceutical Applications
15 September 2023
Biomind Labs Inc. (“Biomind Labs” or the “Company”) (NEO: BMND) (OTC: BMNDF) (FSE: 3XI), a leading biotech company focused on developing the next generation of pharmaceuticals to treat patients suffering from neurological disorders by targeting the drivers of disease, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first 5-Metoxi-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (“5-MeO-DMT”) organic synthesis scheme. This significant achievement marks a major breakthrough in the development of a suitable procedure for obtaining 5-MeO-DMT freebase as an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (“API”) with exceptionally high purity and pharmaceutical-grade quality.
5-MeO-DMT is a naturally occurring compound found in various plant and animal species, and it has garnered significant attention within the scientific and medical communities for its potential therapeutic properties. Biomind’s groundbreaking achievement opens the door to new possibilities in drug development and medical research.
“Reaching this significant achievement enables us to guarantee the accessibility and cost-effectiveness of our innovative tryptamine-based formulations when they are ready for market release. At present, navigating the landscape of tryptamine-based products presents numerous challenges, including locating suppliers capable of meeting the stringent commercial and quality criteria necessary for pharmaceutical-grade products. Additionally, the associated complexities in the authorization process, substantial expenses, and intricate logistics further compound these challenges. By possessing the capacity to manufacture our own APIs while adhering to pharmaceutical-grade quality standards, we significantly mitigate the risk of supply shortages, positioning ourselves as an ideal partner within the traditional pharmaceutical sector”, commented Alejandro Antalich, CEO of Biomind Labs.
