The company filed an IND with the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on August 28, 2020, which was approved on September 25, 2020, to initiate a phase 2 clinical trial for the use of FSD201 to treat coronavirus (COVID-19), the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The trial is currently underway and is expected to randomize 352 patients in a controlled, double-blind multicenter study.

Severe COVID-19 is characterized by an over-exuberant inflammatory response that may lead to a cytokine storm and ultimately death. The company is focused on developing ultra-micro PEA for its anti-inflammatory properties to avoid the cytokine storm associated with acute lung injury in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
