Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, January 26, 2023 – PanGenomic Health Inc. (“PanGenomic Health” or the “Company”) (CSE: NARA), is pleased to announce its subsidiary, MUJN Diagnostics Inc. (formerly named PlantGx Diagnostics Corp.)(“MUJN Diagnostics”), has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (“MoU”) for a diagnostic testing joint venture with Psy Integrated Health Inc. (“Psyi”), a Vancouver-based management services organization DBA Empower Health Wellness Centre.
Under the MoU, Psyi and MUJN Diagnostics will explore the joint development of a brain health targeted biomarker diagnostics service to support clients being treated with ketamine assisted therapy to objectively track the efficacy of their treatment program. Psyi and MUJN Diagnostics hope to initiate a trial biomarker testing adjunct service by March 2023 that will compare biomarker levels before, during and after treatment to track the patient’s progress. The goal of this adjunct service will be to collect personalized biomarker data that would assist practitioners in optimizing client treatment plans.
“The proposed joint venture between MUJN Diagnostics and Psyi will aim to help usher in a new platform for integrated healthcare professionals using brain health therapies to more effectively monitor and treat their clients”, said Vincent Lum, CEO of MUJN Diagnostics and Co-Founder of PanGenomic Health. “Promising alternative therapies for a variety of brain and mental health conditions, such as the off-label use of ketamine and psychedelics as a part of a structured treatment program, need objective data for practitioners and their clients to track and quantify the efficacy of their treatment.”
Patrick Callas, Director of Psy Integrated Health, added, “We are excited to be working with MUJN Diagnostics on a new generation of health diagnostics. Our combined expertise in leading edge alternative healthcare therapies and disease specific biomarker treatment monitoring will seek to provide health care professionals in the field of integrated health with tools to improve patient outcomes.”
Terms, including the financial commitments to be made by each of MUJN Diagnostics and Psyi to the proposed joint venture, are still to be determined. The Company expects to announce additional details regarding the proposed joint venture when a definitive agreement is executed, which is expected in February 2023. No assurances can be made that the parties will successfully negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement, or that the proposed joint venture will proceed in the timeframe currently contemplated or at all.
