“We at Cybin are proud to be working with IntelGenx to develop a fast-acting psilocybin film,” said Cybin’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jukka Karjalainen. “Compared to oral psilocybin capsules, which are subject to variable intestinal absorption and high first-pass metabolism in the liver, the systemic bioavailability of orally-dissolving psilocybin film is expected to be quite high. In addition, the dose of psilocybin administered by an orally-dissolving film is expected to be a fraction of what is required in oral capsules. Taken together, these features have the potential to increase both the safety and efficacy of psilocybin when administered in this manner.”

“Cybin’s intention with an orally-dissolving psilocybin film is to bypass the digestive system, which will provide faster-acting relief for individuals with anxiety disorders who require more immediate symptom relief,” added Cybin’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Glavine.

Dr. Horst G. Zerbe, CEO of IntelGenx, commented, “This partnership exemplifies both the versatility and clinical advantages of our VersaFilm® technology platform. In addition to offering patients a convenient method of administration, our technology offers superior drug bioavailability, which decreases both the amount of active pharmaceutical ingredient required per dose, as well as time to onset of action, which are paramount when treating distressing conditions such as anxiety. We are looking forward to working with Cybin to realize these potential benefits for patients struggling with mental health disorders.”
