Silo Pharma Files Patent for Groundbreaking Ketamine Implant Therapeutic to Target Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain

Silo reports positive stability of SP-26 for time-release and dosage control

SARASOTA, FL, March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silo Pharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILO) (“Silo” or the “Company”), a developmental stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel formulations and drug delivery systems for traditional therapeutics and psychedelic treatments, today announced that it has filed a provisional patent application titled ‘Methods and Combinations for Managing Pain’ with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

The patent application includes protection for the Company’s SP-26 implantable drug delivery system for a novel time-released, dose-controlled formulation of ketamine, initially targeted for fibromyalgia. Silo believes that implantable drug delivery may be well-suited for chronic pain management.

“Our SP-26 implant technology is designed to deliver a steady, low dose of ketamine for sustained relief of chronic pain,” said Eric Weisblum, CEO of Silo. “We are pleased with the implant’s performance in pre-clinical studies to date. If approved, SP-26 could be the first at-home approved ketamine based therapeutic.”

The next tests of the SP-26 ketamine implant will measure drug dissolution and time-release action.

Silo’s SP-26 is a ketamine-based injectable dissolvable implant for the treatment of chronic pain and fibromyalgia. The subcutaneous implant is being designed to safely regulate dosage and time release, of the pain-relieving treatment. If clinically successful, SP-26 could qualify for the FDA’s streamlined 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway for drug approval.
