Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – September 16, 2021 – Blackhawk Growth Corp. (CSE:BLR); (CNSX:BLR.CN); (OTC:BLRZF); (Frankfurt:0JJ) (the “Company” or “Blackhawk”) is pleased to provide an update on MindBio Therapeutics Pty Ltd. (“MindBio Therapeutics”), a clinical stage drug development company conducting research into microdosing and medicinal use of psychedelic medicine.
MindBio Therapeutics plans to commercialize the intellectual property generated from the University of Auckland’s clinical trial in psychedelic assisted therapy in advanced-stage cancer patients. The administration of high-dose psychedelic compounds have shown clinically significant benefits in the treatment of psychological distress in advanced cancer patients. However, psychedelics at high doses can vividly alter perceptions; an experience that poses challenges in this vulnerable population. ‘Microdosing’ – repeated administration of psychedelics in low doses does not alter perceptions but may offer similar benefit in reducing anxiety, depression and existential distress. This study will evaluate the feasibility of conducting a randomised controlled trial comparing psychedelic-microdose assisted in people who have advanced cancer and anxiety or depression.
Participants will be randomised to receive psychotherapy alongside doses of either an LSD microdose or placebo. The feasibility, acceptability, safety and potential psychological benefits of this intervention will be assessed. The findings will inform the development of a larger trial and provide initial indication of potential benefits of psychedelic microdosing in advanced cancer.
