Mindset Pharma Inc. (CSE: MSET) (FSE: 9DF) (OTCQB: MSSTF) ("Mindset" or the "Company") a drug discovery and development company focused on creating optimized and patentable next-generation psychedelic-inspired medicines to treat neurological and psychiatric disorders with unmet medical needs, today announced that the Company has developed a novel, patent-pending, intranasal platform formulation technology expected to deliver improved central nervous system (CNS) penetration of first and subsequent generations of psychedelic medicines.

Mindset's novel intranasal formulation technology leverages its unique platform technology, a common feature of several of Mindset's leading psychedelic drug candidates, altering the pharmacokinetics profile of the active pharmaceutical ingredient. The proof of concept (PoC) of this novel formulation demonstrates improved CNS penetration compared to standard formulations of 5-MeO-DMT. Data also demonstrates increased CSF exposure relative to plasma in comparison to a standard formulation by a factor of approximately 3. With this unique formulation technology, there is potential for reducing dose level, speeding uptake and out-take from the brain, and reducing peripheral side-effects, thereby enabling a more efficient, safer, and more cost-effective treatment.

"The intranasal formulation technology further enhances Mindset's portfolio of complementary scientific assets. Now, the Company has a leading portfolio of next generation NCEs, patent pending processes to synthesize first generation compounds efficiently and cost-effectively, and a novel intranasal delivery system to improve the overall pharmacokinetic properties of first- and second-generation psychedelic drug candidates," commented James Lanthier, CEO of Mindset Pharma. "We are very excited by the initial data of our intranasal technology using 5-MeO-DMT and look forward to broadening our validation data as we anticipate this technological advancement to be interchangeable with other known and novel psychedelic and CNS therapeutics. The development of this formulation technology is yet another excellent example of Mindset's innovation engine and its relentless and ongoing focus on scientific rigor to assist patients suffering from CNS disorders with unmet medical needs."

The Company has filed a PCT application on May 26, 2022, with a priority date of May 26, 2021.

Mindset Pharma Receives Allowance for Patent Application Covering its Short-Duration Novel Psychedelic Medications for The Treatment of Central Nervous System Disorders

Mindset Pharma Inc. (CSE: MSET) (FSE: 9DF) (OTCQB: MSSTF) ("Mindset" or the "Company") a drug discovery and development company focused on creating optimized and patentable next-generation psychedelic medicines to treat neurological and psychiatric disorders with unmet medical needs, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") has granted allowance for Mindset's patent application number 17387,864, titled "3-Pyrrolidine-Indole Derivatives as Serotonergic Psychedelic Agents for the Treatment of CNS Disorders." Included within this application are drug candidates that the Company classifies as belonging to Family 2, which are novel analogues of psilocybin that exhibit a range of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic improvements in pre-clinical studies.

Family 2 is included within Mindset's collaboration with the McQuade Center for Strategic Research and Development, LLC (MSRD), a member of the global Otsuka family of pharmaceutical companies. The drug candidates under this platform show strong effect size in vitro and in vivo compared to psilocybin, are potentially shorter acting, orally bioavailable and CNS penetrant.

Mindset Pharma and Top Psychiatric Research Hospital, CAMH, Enter Innovative Collaboration to Build Molecular Profile of MSP-1014 Compared to Psilocybin

Mindset Pharma and Top Psychiatric Research Hospital, CAMH, Enter Innovative Collaboration to Build Molecular Profile of MSP-1014 Compared to Psilocybin

Mindset Pharma Inc. (CSE: MSET) (FSE: 9DF) (OTCQB: MSSTF) ("Mindset" or the "Company") a drug discovery and development company focused on creating optimized and patentable next-generation psychedelic medicines to treat neurological and psychiatric disorders with unmet medical needs, today announced that the Company has entered into an innovative research collaboration with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health ("CAMH"), a top psychiatric research hospital based in Toronto, Canada. Mindset will sponsor a preclinical study at CAMH on its lead asset, MSP-1014, a novel and patented second generation psilocybin-like compound that is being prepared for First-in-Human studies alongside psilocybin.

Single psychedelic experiences can cause both short- and long-term behavioral changes in humans and the mechanisms of these are relatively under explored. The study will interrogate how macro and micro doses of psychedelic compounds modulate expression levels of molecular biomarkers of brain plasticity in rats. The team expects to uncover short- and long-term changes in cFOS and BDNF expression that could underlie the long-term behavioral changes associated with a single psychedelic experience and develop molecular insights into the magnitude of effects of its lead compound, MSP-1014, compared to psilocybin. Dr. Anh Dzung Lê, Senior Scientist and Head of Neurobiology of Alcohol Lab in the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute at CAMH, will lead the study, supported by Dr. Douglas Funk, a Project Scientist in the CAMH Neurobiology of Alcohol Lab
