(“PharmAla” or the “Company”) (CSE: MDMA) (OTC:MDXXF), a biotechnology company focused on the research, development, and manufacturing of LaNeo™ MDMA and novel derivatives of MDMA (MDXX class molecules), is pleased to present its Q1 Interim Financial Statement for the period ending November 30, 2023.

“Positive regulatory changes are fast approaching to permit these life-saving medicines to be used in treatments globally - including a very prominent FDA decision to be made in the coming weeks - and we are pleased with the progress we’ve made towards serving patients and practitioners globally,” said Nick Kadysh, CEO at PharmAla Biotech. “While we are a young company, and we know there will be ups and downs in this very nascent category, we are confident that 2024 will be a prolific year for MDMA and it will continue to compound with our proven history of achievements and accomplishments from 2023.”

The company is furthermore proud to confirm that the first-ever dose of MDMA issued under the Australian Authorized Prescriber Scheme was manufactured by PharmAla Biotech. Accelerating the use of MDMA in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) globally continues to support both PharmAla’s manufacturing IP, and its development of novel, safer analogs of MDMA, such as the company’s lead ALA-002 molecule.

PharmAla will be hosting an investor webinar on Friday the 2nd to further elaborate on its financial report as well as discuss their recent achievement of obtaining a Controlled Drugs & Substances Dealer’s License (CDSL) from Health Canada.
