MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Dec. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pasithea Therapeutics Corp. (Nasdaq: KTTA) (“Pasithea” or the “Company”), a novel biotechnology company focused on the research and discovery of new and effective treatments for psychiatric and neurological disorders, today announced that Pasithea Clinics, its wholly owned subsidiary, has expanded the availability of its intravenous (“IV”) ketamine therapy to patients in Florida and Nevada. Ketamine was introduced to the medical community as an anesthetic more than 50 years ago and in sub-anesthetic doses has shown remarkable efficacy in the treatment of certain psychiatric conditions, such as treatment-resistant depression (“TRD”) and post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”).

“In November, we opened our first U.S. mobile clinics in New York and California, and we’re pleased to announce that our in-home IV ketamine infusion therapy is now available in Nevada and Florida,” said Dr. Tiago Reis Marques, CEO of Pasithea Therapeutics. “The pandemic has exacerbated the mental health crisis and the number of patients suffering from depression increased by approximately 25% in the past year. Today, up to three million Americans are known to have a diagnosis of treatment-resistant depression. These patients often struggle to complete day-to-day activities, and the effort required to visit a physical clinic can feel overwhelming. By expanding access to in-home treatment, we aim to close the treatment gap. Initially, the treatment will be offered in Miami and Las Vegas and will expand to other cities in these states in the coming weeks. Pasithea mobile clinics are already available in New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco.”

“The efficacy of ketamine in improving symptoms of some mental health disorders is well documented, and our mobile clinics enable patients to receive therapy in the privacy and comfort of their own homes while still under the care of an experienced medical team. This type of program can be crucial for people who struggle with treatment-resistant depression and is an important step in expanding access to IV ketamine treatment. We look forward to continuing our U.S. expansion in the coming months,” concluded Dr. Adam Nadelson, Managing Director of Pasithea Clinics in the United States.

Studies have shown that up to 70% of those who receive IV ketamine treatment will eventually show a clinical response. While the number of treatments suggested is done on a case-by-case basis, a typical treatment plan consists of up to six infusions over a period of two to three weeks.

Psychedelic research coming to Florida

Florida Would Study Psychedelics’ Medical Benefits Under Top Senate Democrat’s New Bill

“The science regarding psilocybin is real, cannot be ignored, and soon will be a universally-accepted form of treatment in the U.S.,” said Rep. Michael Grieco (D) of Florida.

That’s why he and Senate Minority Leader Lauren Book (D) filed bills that would require the state to study the medical potential of psilocybin and MDMA.

The bills were modeled on the measure enacted in Texas earlier this year to study psychedelic therapy for veterans with PTSD, but with an even broader scope. If enacted, the Department of Health would be directed to research other conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, chronic pain and migraines.

Will psychedelics become take-at-home prescription drugs?

Psycheceutical, Inc. Announces New Patents that Enable Psychedelic Compounds to be Administered as Pharmaceutical Medicines

Most psychedelics are administered through the digestive tract, but this can require higher dosages, slow the absorption, and can have unwanted side effects. Psycheceutical Inc. is taking a different route.

The Miami-based company just received two patents that could turn psychedelics into safe and effective take-at-home drugs.

The first is for the Janus particle technology, which uses layers of nanoparticles to target specific cells. The technology can deliver multiple medicines simultaneously at different rates and times.

The second patent is for the company’s NeuroDirect technology, a delivery system that administers compounds directly to nerve connections in the brain. This method bypasses the blood-brain-barrier, which will allow for smaller doses, faster responses, and improved efficacy.
