Kalypso Wellness Centers Moves to Secure Patent for Ketamine Treatments

SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 21, 2018— Kalypso Wellness Centers, a leader in advanced ketamine infusion treatments for PTSD, depression, chronic pain, and many other conditions, announced today that it has filed a patent for its groundbreaking Kalypso Ketamine™ infusion process. Ketamine treatments are becoming increasingly popular around the country as an alternative method for treating debilitating disorders and conditions that have proven difficult to treat using traditional medicine.

“We decided that now is the right time to patent our process because we feel that our formulations and treatment methods provide patients with a better experience with less side effects,” said Dr. Bryan Clifton, Kalypso’s Chief Medical Officer. “Our infusions take an hour and most patients see benefits after their first treatment. Kalypso RESET formulations have demonstrated an 85% to 95% clinical efficacy rate and adverse side effect rate of less than 5%.”

Once approved, the patent will be in effect for 20 years and it will apply to all five of Kalypso’s proprietary ketamine formulations and any future ketamine formulations developed by Kalypso. The patent also covers all routes of ketamine administration for currently recognized clinical applications and any potential future uses.

“We feel confident Kalypso Ketamine is beyond the state of the art and we want to ensure that there is a standard that people adhere to as it relates to administrating ketamine treatments and how they should properly use our formulations,” Dr. Clifton said.

Since Kalypso will be the first to apply for a patent for these formulations and methodology, the company will be spending more time in Washington, D.C., advocating for patients’ safety and helping establish the standard of care for ketamine treatments.

Currently, Kalypso offers its revolutionary Kalypso Ketamine™ treatments at its five clinics—three in Texas, one in North Carolina, and one in New York. To date, Kalypso has administered approximately 3,500 ketamine infusions.

Depression and Ketamine

For sufferers of depression and suicidal ideation, Kalypso Ketamine™ may save lives

Ketamine was first used as an anesthetic some 50 years ago, and in smaller doses it works to ease physical pain. When taken in larger doses, ketamine has been known to cause the user to experience hallucinations, thus making it a popular recreational drug over the decades.

In the last 20 years, another use of ketamine has been discovered that may literally save lives—combatting depression and suicidal ideation.

Many studies have been conducted since then to determine just how effective ketamine is as an antidepressant, and scientists have found that when it works, it works quickly. Antidepressants generally take weeks before users feel the effects; when ketamine is taken, either intravenously or with a nasal spray, it often takes effect in a matter of hours.

Kalypso Wellness Centers Groundbreaking Approach to Pain Treatment Leads to Company Reaching 3K Milestone

SAN ANTONIO, May 15, 2018: Kalypso Wellness Centers, a leader in advanced ketamine infusion treatment for chronic pain, PTSD, migraine headaches, depression, fibromyalgia and many other conditions, has reached a medical milestone – it’s performed 3,000 Kalypso Ketamine™ infusion treatments in less than two years.

“We have achieved phenomenal growth in such a short amount of time because ketamine has become an extremely popular way to treat various disorders and illnesses that are extremely difficult to treat using traditional medicine, such as PTSD, neuropathic pain, migraine headaches, anxiety, and inflammatory pain,” said Dr. Cannon Clifton, Kalypso Wellness Centers CEO and founder.

Dr. Clifton believes that Kalypso Wellness Centers reached its 3,000 infusion treatment milestone because of the effectiveness of their treatment methods on patients and the lack of side effects their treatment method causes compared to generic ketamine.

Kalypso Wellness Centers utilize five distinct proprietary ketamine formulations and tailor the infusions to each patient’s unique disease state. As a result, hundreds who had previously suffered for many years have been able to substantially improve their quality of life. Ketamine, which has traditionally been known as an anesthetic or a recreational drug, is fast gaining a reputation as an alternative method for pain management and depression.

Because of the success Kalypso Wellness Centers have had with their proprietary ketamine infusions — a 90% clinical efficacy rate and a 5% adverse side affect rate — Kalypso’s founders have been able to expand their practice to three clinics across Texas (San Antonio, Corpus Christi, North Houston) and one clinic in North Carolina. They expect to open additional clinics soon.

Kalypso was founded in 2016 by two board certified anesthesiologists and two board certified pain management doctors, now features four clinics. The company expects to launch new therapies in the new future. Dr. Scott Worrich, Kalypso Wellness Centers Chief Clinical Officer, continues to investigate innovative formulations that will benefit patients.

“We spend a significant amount of time researching various medicines and formulations to optimize our treatments for specific conditions. Our customized treatments offer significant value to patients as evidenced by the 31 different disease states we have treated at our clinics. Our slogan is ‘RESET…for life’ because our Kalypso Ketamine™ infusions help people ‘reset’ their lives,” Dr. Clifton said. “We have helped hundreds of people reset their lives, and we are going to help thousands more. I believe that in the not-too-distant future, ketamine will be the rule and not the exception.”
