  • Placed First Order for its Rapid Point-Of-Care COVID-19 Test System
  • 9600 Individual Tests Ordered
  • Mid-March Delivery
  • Additional Pandemic-Focused Biosensors in Development

XPhyto Therapeutics. (CSE:XPHY)(OTCQB:XPHYF)(FSE:4XT) (“XPhyto” or the “Company“), is pleased to announce that it has placed the first order for its rapid point-of-care SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) RT-PCR test system (“Covid-ID Lab”) from its exclusive diagnostic development partner, 3a-diagnostics GmbH (“3a”).

The first order of Covid-ID Lab is for 9,600 individual tests, which are packaged in 200 kits of 48 tests each. Delivery of the first order is expected by mid-March 2021 and will be primarily used to supply prospective distribution partners and licensees and their respective government regulators with test samples for review and evaluation. The tests will be manufactured in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.

“We are pleased to report that all steps towards the launch of Covid-ID Lab remain on track within an ambitious timeline,” said Hugh Rogers, CEO, and Director of XPhyto. “Our experienced market launch team is working quickly to bring the product to market, as well as to establish licensing and distribution partnerships. We are confident that Covid-ID Lab, as a 25-minute PCR test with minimal technical and personnel requirements, will be a stand-out product in the COVID-19 test market.”

Covid-ID Lab was designed to be a rapid, accurate, and robust COVID-19 test system with reduced operating costs and increased convenience and portability. XPhyto expects 3a to receive ISO 13485 medical device manufacturer approval by the end of February and European regulatory approval as a commercial in vitro diagnostic device (CE-IVD) for Covid-ID Lab by early March. Initial commercial manufacturing is planned for Germany, with additional capacity in other jurisdictions to follow. The sales launch in Europe is targeted for April 2021. XPhyto is currently in discussions with potential distribution and wholesale partners in Europe and the Middle East.

XPhyto and 3a are also developing a portfolio of oral biosensor screening tests for detection of bacterial and viral infectious diseases, including influenza A, group A strep, stomatitis, periimplantitis, and periodontitis. Additional pandemic-focused biosensors are in development, specifically for H1N1 (swine flu) and H5N1 (avian flu). The Company is planning the commercial launch of its first biosensor product in the second half of 2021.

Xphyto $XPHY.ca $XPYHF to Produce Mescaline for Psychedelic Programs $NGM.ca $SONA.ca $HBP.ca $MIR.ca $IPA.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:21 AM on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021
  • Focused on the synthesis of pharmaceutical grade mescaline
  • Mescaline has shown particular promise for the treatment of addiction and depression.

Xphyto Laboratories Inc., Xphyto Therapeutics Corp.’s wholly owned Alberta subsidiary, has added mescaline production to its psychedelic medicine programs. Further to the Company’s press release dated February 3, 2021, the capacity under contract with Applied Pharmaceutical Innovation will focus on the synthesis of pharmaceutical grade mescaline. Mescaline has been anecdotally recognized as a relatively safe psychedelic drug and has shown particular promise for the treatment of addiction and depression.

“In addition to our European-based psilocybin biotechnology production, the Company has now expanded its portfolio of psychedelic compounds to include mescaline. Our goal is to develop industrial scale production processes for the wholesale market and for incorporation into XPhyto’s thin film drug delivery platforms” commented Hugh Rogers, CEO & Director. “We see a significant market opportunity in the production of pharmaceutical mescaline and the standardization of dosage formulations with precise, predictable and efficient drug delivery for clinical study and therapeutic use”

Mescaline (3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine) is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in certain cacti, including peyote, San Pedro, and Peruvian torch, and is most commonly associated with traditional Native American religious rituals and ceremonies. Mescaline is a Schedule I drug in the United States; however, it is legal in certain religious ceremonies registered by the Native American Church and its use is expanding as a supplement to various types of meditation and psychedelic therapy.

In general, psychedelic compounds have emerged as a new class of drugs with the potential to improve the treatment of mental health related medical conditions such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and trauma-related stress disorder. The Company believes that the industrial-scale production of pharmaceutical grade psilocybin and mescaline will provide a strong foundation for its psychedelic medicine programs.

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:29 AM on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021
  • Announces Psychedelic Pharmaceutical Production Agreement
  • Synthesis of pharmaceutical grade psychedelic compounds
  • Working toward regulatory approval for the commercial production process

XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. (CSE:XPHY)(OTCQB:XPHYF)(FSE:4XT) (“XPhyto” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that XPhyto Laboratories Inc. (“XPhyto Labs”), its wholly owned Alberta subsidiary, has signed an agreement (the “Agreement”) with Applied Pharmaceutical Innovation (“Applied”) for the synthesis of pharmaceutical grade psychedelic compounds and the parallel development of the standard operating procedures necessary to obtain regulatory approval for the respective commercial production process.

The industrial-scale production of standardized active pharmaceutical ingredients is an important part of XPhyto’s psychedelic pharmaceutical program as the Company anticipates a shortage of large-scale supply of certain approved and standardized pharmaceutical grade psychedelics.

Applied is a not-for-profit institution at the University of Alberta created to support translational drug development for industry and innovators. With an interdisciplinary team of over 30 pharmaceutical scientists, clinicians, regulatory, patent, and market experts, Applied provides industry with access to translational science in a framework that supports commercial success. This includes retention of IP and ownership of work product for the funder, focused and efficient project execution, and regulatory compliant operations.
