Las Vegas, NV, Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Odyssey Health, Inc. (OTC: ODYY), f/k/a Odyssey Group International, Inc., a company focused on developing unique, life-improving medical products, today announces the completion and safety findings from Cohort I of its Multi-Day Ascending Dosing (MAD) arm for its Phase I Clinical Trial. Odyssey’s trial is administering PRV-002, its novel drug to treat concussion, to healthy human subjects. MAD Cohort I subjects were dosed for five consecutive days. The drug, PRV-002 was safe and well tolerated in this cohort.
The trial is being conducted by a leading clinical research organization, Avance Clinical Pty Ltd, through Nucleus Network, a Phase 1 clinical trial provider with multiple sites throughout Australia. Cohort I of MAD included eight healthy human volunteers that received one low dose of intranasal PRV-002 for five consecutive days followed by evaluations for abnormal responses. No severe adverse events were noted as PRV-002 appeared to be well-tolerated.
Dr. Jacob VanLandingham of Odyssey Health, Inc. commented, “As the head of drug development for the PRV-002 concussion treatment, I was very happy to see these positive safety results when dosing for multiple days. PRV-002 appears to be well-tolerated when given intranasally. If PRV-002 is found to be efficacious for concussed patients in the Phase 2/3 trials, I believe that intranasal brain-targeting will be the key to its success. So far, the intranasal drug/device combination has functioned nicely and has been well-tolerated in the clinical setting.”
Concussions represent an ‘unmet’ medical need. Common settings for concussion include contact sporting events, military training and operations, motor vehicle accidents and elderly assistive-living facilities due to falls.
The Phase I MAD clinical trial is ongoing and consists of a total of 16 healthy subjects. The Phase I Single Ascending Dosing (SAD) arm has successfully been completed and was well-tolerated. Odyssey will report additional MAD results as they become available.

About PRV-002PRV-002 is a fully synthetic non-naturally occurring neurosteroid being developed for the treatment of mTBI (concussion). In preclinical studies, PRV-002 has demonstrated equivalent, if not superior, neuroprotective effects compared to related neurosteroids. Animal models of concussion demonstrated that PRV-002 reduces the behavioral pathology associated with brain injury symptoms such as memory impairment, anxiety, and motor/sensory performance. Additionally, PRV-002 is lipophilic and can easily cross the blood-brain barrier to rapidly eliminate swelling, oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain while restoring proper blood flow.
