"Lind is pleased to increase its investment in Seelos at such an important time in their development. Their intranasal Ketamine program, SLS-002, is being studied for acute suicidal ideation and behavior in patients with major depression," said Phillip Valliere , Managing Director at The Lind Partners. "It is a very timely and relevant asset to be developing and we look forward to tracking its progress. We have great confidence in Dr. Raj Mehra and the Seelos team and are thrilled to support their upcoming trials."
