Mindset Pharma Announces Additional Preclinical Results Suggesting Superior Efficacy and Improved Safety in Head-to-Head Comparison to Psilocybin for its First Lead Clinical Candidate, MSP-1014
Magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug according to a recent study, but Mindset Pharma (MSET) is working to make them even safer.
The company found that its patent-pending psychedelic compound, MSP-1014, may be more effective, safer, and more scalable than psilocybin. Researchers discovered that MSP-1014 more than doubled the head twitch responses in mice, an indicator of serotonin 5-HT2A receptor activity, which is tied to psychedelic experiences. MSP-1014 did not cause body temperature to drop, which was seen with psilocybin.
