Ceruvia Lifesciences Begins Dosing Volunteers In Research On Non Hallucinogenic LSD Compound

Clinical-stage psychedelics biopharma company Ceruvia Lifesciences has dosed the first participant in its Phase 1 trial on NYPRG-101, aka BOL-148, an LSD non-hallucinogenic analog with a clinical and experimental administration history that dates back to the 1950s.

"Having invested considerable time and resources in producing our own cGMP 2-bromo-d-LSD and in completing our IND-enabling preclinical toxicology work, we are excited to have commenced this clinical trial with the dosing of the first participant," said the company’s founder and CEO, Carey Turnbull. 

The company is aiming to use the proprietary psychedelic compound to treat several patient populations, including those suffering from migraine and cluster headaches, in order to provide “meaningful relief” from the disability and psychosocial burdens that these conditions bring about to peoples’ lives.

Ceruvia's Phase 1 clinical trial is a randomized, single-ascending dose study testing for safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of NYPRG-101 in up to 40 healthy adult participants.
