About the Ketabon Program 
The Ketabon program, a joint venture between HMNC Brain Health and Develco Pharma comprises an oral prolonged-release formulation of ketamine for TRD (KET01) with minimal dissociative side effects, that could make it the first ketamine treatment for depression suitable for use at home. The pharmacokinetic profile of the prolonged-release formulation could significantly improve the risk profile and patient convenience, by minimizing dissociative side effects compared to the currently applied intravenous and intranasal ketamine therapies resulting in a decreased need for monitoring under medical supervision. TRD patients with insufficient response to standard antidepressants represent close to 30% of an overall estimated number of 320 million patients worldwide suffering from major depressive disorder. Clinical development of oral prolonged-release ketamine could also be potentially expanded into other indications beyond depression, such as anxiety, aggression, PTSD, and panic disorder.
