Filament Health and ATMA Journey Centers Announce Licensing Agreement

ATMA will use Filament’s proprietary botanical drug candidate for clinical trials

Vancouver, British Columbia, February 23, 2022Filament Health Corp. (OTCQB:FLHLF) (NEO:FH) (FSE:7QS) (“Filament” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage natural psychedelic drug development company, today announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with ATMA Journey Centers (“ATMA”). ATMA is Canada’s first private therapy company to conduct legal psilocybin therapy through the Health Canada Section 56 Exemption, assisting Canadians facing end-of-life distress from terminal illness. Under the agreement, Filament has licensed PEX010 (25mg), a naturally-extracted botanical drug candidate, to ATMA for use in clinical trials. This includes a phase I psilocybin safety trial in healthy individuals enrolled in a psychedelic assisted therapy training program, for which ATMA recently received Health Canada approval.

“The selection of our natural psilocybin drug candidate for ATMA’s future clinical trials is a validation of both our product and the ease of working with Filament Health,” said Filament Chief Executive Officer, Benjamin Lightburn. “ATMA is a leader in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and we are thrilled that they will be using our product.”

David Harder, Co-Chief Executive Officer at ATMA, said “Filament’s candidate was an attractive option because they are a licensed manufacturer and their drug candidate has received approval from Health Canada to enter into multiple human clinical trials. We are proud to support a thriving domestic psychedelics industry by selecting Filament’s natural, Canadian-made drug candidate for future studies.”

Based on a growing body of published medical research and first-hand experience, ATMA is striving to bring psychedelic-assisted therapy to the clinic. In agreement with Health Canada’s mandate, ATMA and Filament Health believe the best way this is achieved is through clinical trials, demonstrating both safety and efficacy, for a variety of mental health indications.
