SciSparc Achieves Major Milestone with First Patient Dosed in Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Trial

TEL AVIV, Israel — SciSparc Ltd. (Nasdaq: SPRC), a specialty clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focusing on the development of therapies to treat disorders and rare diseases of the central nervous system, today announced that it has successfully dosed the first patient in its SCI-210 clinical trial at the Soroka Medical Center for pediatric patients who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This significant milestone follows the Company’s recent announcement about the successful delivery of its innovative SCI-210 treatment to the clinical trial site, enabling the commencement of dosing.

SciSparc’s proprietary SCI-210 treatment combines cannabidiol-rich oil (CBD) and CannAmide™, SciSparc’s proprietary palmitoylethanolamide-based tablets. The dosing of the first patient signifies the transition from preparatory phases to active treatment evaluation in the quest to offer a more effective and safe treatment option for ASD.

“Dosing the first patient is always an exciting moment in any clinical trial. As we work to offer new hope to the patients, family members, and caretakers who are battling this disorder, we are excited to kick-off this next phase of development for SCI-210,” said Oz Adler, SciSparc’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to reach this milestone, which brings us one step closer to potentially offering a new beacon of hope for patients and families affected by ASD. We are grateful to the patients, Professor Meiri and his team involved in the clinical trial. This achievement represents a pivotal moment for SciSparc as we introduce SCI-210, an innovative cannabinoid-based treatment.”

The clinical trial aims to rigorously evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of SCI-210 in comparison to CBD monotherapy for the treatment of ASD. Designed as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial with cross-over, the study will span 20 weeks and enroll 60 children. The trial’s primary efficacy endpoints include three rigorous assessments: the Aberrant Behavior Checklist-Community (ABC-C) parent questionnaire; the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (CGI-I) scale administered by healthcare professionals; and the determination of the effective therapeutic dosage.
