FourthWall Testing Partners Up with NOVA

FourthWall Testing, LLC has announced a partnership with Nova Mentis Life Science Corp (NOVA). Together, they have established a Serotonin Research Center at FourthWall’s Florida headquarters. 

This collaboration will enable the companies to develop assays to measure serotonin levels in blood, feces, and urine in patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Serotonin is a key hormone which allows brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other. ASD categorizes a diverse group of conditions characterized by some degree of difficulty with social interaction and communication as well as atypical patterns of activities and behaviors. Their collaborative neuroinflammatory research program is based on identifying biomarkers that can be used to confirm the therapeutic efficacy of NOVA’s proprietary psilocybin-based drug portfolio. They have plans to develop and launch a longitudinal data bank to support the large-scale studies of the microbiome, developmental disorder genetics serotonin activity levels, and behavioral metrics as they relate to ASD, with an additional focus on individuals diagnosed with ASD and fragile x syndrome (FXS)
