CHICAGO and TORONTO, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wesana Health Holdings Inc. (“Wesana” or the “Company”) (CSE: WESA; OTCQB: WSNAF), a data-driven life sciences company, is pleased to announce that it has filed Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”) patent applications towards securing the exclusive rights to protocols, delivery methods and compositions of matter which includes utilizing a high loading dose of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy, coupled with non-hallucinogenic, low maintenance doses of psilocybin with and without other evidence-based therapies (plant medicines, fungi and adaptogens) to treat neurological based conditions.
This PCT application, filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization will enable Wesana to file patent applications and seek protection in most major markets throughout the world.
These applications are focused on developing novel therapies to treat symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury (“TBI”), such as depression and anxiety, as well as migraines unrelated to TBI among the general population. Overall, any patent efforts in relation to the foregoing are at the patent application stage.
“Since we began our research at Wesana, our goal remains to find novel therapies to help other sufferers of TBI and mental health challenges find hope through effective healing medicine and therapies,” said Daniel Carcillo, Wesana founder and CEO. “As we continue to develop our process and refine our unique solutions, we want to ensure proper IP protection to be able to provide the most innovative methods for proper treatment. To pass this critical milestone and bring us one step closer to accomplishing this goal is truly thrilling.”
Dr. Mark Wingertzahn, Wesana’s Chief Scientific Officer, added “I am excited for this filing as it serves to further advance Wesana’s proprietary development portfolio.”
