Nanoparticles carry psychedelics to the brain via nasal spray, to treat PTSD
Ongoing research; File under: Nothing could possibly go wrong
Cision PR Newswire: — “Madrigal Mental Care, a biopharmaceutical company developing a breakthrough delivery system for psychedelic drugs, introduces its novel nanotechnology for the treatment and prevention of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at Biomed Israel 2022, the premier international Life Science and HealthTech conference in Israel, on May 10-12, 2022, at the David InterContinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel.”
“The advanced nanotechnology-based system is a breakthrough nasal spray that enables nose-to-brain delivery of organic nanoparticles. These biodegradable nanoparticles encapsulate molecules of psychedelic substances, such as psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, as well as ketamine, mescaline, MDMA and others. The nanotechnology was invented by Prof. Amnon Sintov, Department of Biomedical Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and was licensed from BGN Technologies, the Technology Transfer Company of BGU.”
So far, all the research is taking place in the lab, using cell cultures. The projection: animal studies are next, and then human studies.
I’ve been warning about nanoparticles piercing the blood brain barrier to deliver drugs and even make genetic alterations.
