Press Release: Silo Pharma Secures Patent that May be Used for Psychedelics Delivery Technology


Silo Pharma’s notice of allowance paves the way toward clinical trials for its psychedelics delivery platform using homing peptides. Silo Pharma Inc.

According to Global Industry Analysts, the global CNS therapeutics market could reach more than $132 billion by 2024. The homing peptides work by helping conventional therapeutics better target diseased tissue.
