The new frontiers of DMT therapies
Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship
Welcome back to Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship! 🍄
In Episode 11, we explore the therapeutic application of DMT across a range of diseases and conditions including Alzheimer’s, stroke, and organ transplants. Much of the attention in psychedelic medicine has been on their ability to address neuropsychiatric indications, but we wanted to know how a company goes about starting a drug development program for indications outside of what most companies are working on. The episode features three biotech companies developing novel DMT therapies: Algernon, Psilera, and Pharmadrug.
In this episode, we discuss:
DMT therapies for organ transplants, stroke patients and substance abuse disorders
Research supporting NN-DMT’s antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects and the receptors it targets
Being a private company vs. public company in psychedelics
What is orphan drug designation and how to apply for it
