Ibogainkusinen 18-MC (18-methoxycoronaridine) kommer att testat i kliniska försök:

SAN CARLOS, CA (January 3, 2013): Savant HWP, Inc. today announced the receipt of a three-year grant
to support the development of 18-MC (18-methoxycoronaridine) as a potential orally active treatment
for drug addiction, obesity and other forms of compulsive behavior. The grant, Award Number
U01DA034986 given by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH), provides a total of $6,486,657 to support IND-enabling studies and GMP Scale-Up of 18-MC for
use in clinical trials. Savant expects to begin human clinical safety studies of 18-MC in Brazil in early
2013, where the drug will also be studied as a potential treatment for leishmaniasis, and to begin U.S.
clinical development in addiction in 2014.
“Unlike current treatments for drug addiction and nicotine abuse, 18-MC uniquely targets the central
dopamine “reward” pathway involved in all forms of addictive “pleasure-seeking” behaviors, including
over-eating,” said Stephen L. Hurst, Savant HWP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Years of
preclinical research using a variety of addiction models, by Savant’s scientific founder, Stanley D. Glick,
PhD, MD, Director of the Center for Neuropharmacology and Neuroscience at Albany Medical College,
suggests this compound has the potential to bring a major treatment advance to the fields of addiction
medicine and obesity therapy.”
“18-MC is likely to be the first of a new generation of agents effective against a broad spectrum of
addictions—from hard drugs such as heroin and cocaine, to alcohol, nicotine and even sugary, high -fat
foods, possibly reducing obesity rates,” said Dr. Glick, who has studied the neurobiology of addiction for
40 years. “We’re also hopeful that this drug will provide the additional benefit of relief for a completely
unrelated disorder, leishmaniasis, which creates painful skin lesions as well as damaging internal
