Founded in 2013 and headquartered in London, Eleusis is the first clinical-stage life science company dedicated to unlocking the full therapeutic potential of psychedelics through conventional clinical development and regulatory approval.
In 2015 and 2016, Eleusis conducted two clinical trials of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). These trials focused on establishing a basic framework for the future clinical development of psychedelics in the context of Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
Eleusis is now embarking on a full clinical development program of ELE-Psilo as a treatment for major depressive disorder. In parallel, Eleusis is continuing its drug discovery and development programs beyond psychiatry in an effort to fully unlock the therapeutic potential of psychedelics.
