TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SciSparc Ltd. (NASDAQ: SPRC), a specialty, clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on the development of therapies to treat disorders of the central nervous system (the “Company”), announced that it has begun to examine the possibility of including psychedelic compounds as potential drug candidates for its intellectual property portfolio.
Despite being heavily regulated around the world, psychedelics have become an increasingly popular area for research. A report by Market Digits estimates that the sector could be worth more than $10 billion by 2027 as compared to $4.75 billion in 2020.
Adi Zuloff-Shani, PhD, Chief Technologies Officer of SciSparc, stated, “We have been tracking the research in psychedelics and are encouraged by the reports which appear to be favorable, particularly for disorders of the central nervous system. I expect our approach has the potential to be compatible with psychedelic compounds, so it behooves us to include them in the pool of candidates we consider when evaluating new opportunities.”
“The industry is still in its infancy, but if we are to believe the analysts, psychedelic-centric therapies represent a significant market opportunity and another reason it is in our interest to establish SciSparc as a leader in the sector,” Zuloff-Shani concluded.
