Tryp Therapeutics (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing intravenous-infused psilocin (the active metabolite of psilocybin) for diseases with high unmet medical needs. The company today announced that it has submitted an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for its upcoming phase 2a clinical trial. The focus of the trial is to investigate the effects of psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy in the treatment of patients aged 21+ suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (“IBS”) at Massachusetts General Hospital (“MGH”). “Tryp and our collaborators at Harvard/MGH believe there is tremendous potential for the treatment of debilitating IBS symptoms by utilizing the combined administration of psilocybin and psychotherapy,” said Jim Gilligan, PhD, chief executive officer of Tryp Therapeutics. “The clinical study will examine how psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy may alter brain networks involved in chronic abdominal pain and gastrointestinal-specific anxiety in patients with IBS to improve their symptoms. Submission of IND 163994 is an important step in advancing our program.”

About Tryp Therapeutics Inc.
Tryp Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing proprietary, novel formulations for the administration of psilocin in combination with psychotherapy to treat diseases with unmet medical needs. Tryp’s lead program, TRP-8803, is a proprietary formulation of IV-infused psilocin (the active metabolite of psilocybin) that alleviates numerous shortcomings of oral psilocybin including: significantly reducing the time to onset of the psychedelic state, controlling the depth and duration of the psychedelic experience, and reducing the overall duration of the intervention to a commercially feasible timeframe. The company has an ongoing phase 2a clinical trial for the treatment of binge eating disorder at the University of Florida, an upcoming phase 2a clinical trial with the University of Michigan for the treatment of fibromyalgia, and a planned phase 2a trial for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome at Mass General Hospital, all of which are utilizing TRP-8802 (synthetic, oral psilocybin) to demonstrate efficacy in these indications. Where a preliminary clinical benefit has been demonstrated, subsequent studies are expected to utilize TRP-8803 (IV-infused psilocin), which has the potential to further improve efficacy, safety and patient experience.
