TORONTO, CANADA – December 6, 2023 – Cybin Inc. (NYSE American:CYBN) (NEO:CYBN) (“Cybin” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to revolutionizing mental healthcare by developing new and innovative next-generation psychedelic-based treatment options, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) has granted U.S. patent 11,834,410 in support of its CYB003 program.

In addition to the rapid, robust and statistically significant reduction in depression symptoms observed three weeks following a single 12 milligram dose of CYB003 compared to placebo, we also saw a sustained improvement at six weeks, as well as impressive response and remission rates of 79% for patients who received two doses. We are extremely pleased with the data and the potential to deliver meaningfully
improved treatment options for people with mental health disorders and are eager to progress our CYB003 program through the next regulatory steps.”
