According to the announcement, the study, which is being conducted by Lucid Psycheceuticals, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, is the first-in-human study designed to evaluate Lucid-MS as a novel drug candidate for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (“MS”).

Outcomes of the study will determine the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of Lucid-MS in healthy volunteers under fed and fasted conditions. “Our clinical development team and international advisory committee are delighted at the progress of this milestone and completing dosing the first cohort,” said Lucid Psycheceuticals CEO Dr. Lakshmi Kotra in the press release. “The safety review committee has recommended to move forward with the next cohort dosing, which we are thrilled to say is expected to commence in the next few days.”
