STOCKHOLM – Xspray Pharma has received approval for two applied patents in the United States. The patent comprises the composition regarding the product candidates HyNap-Sora and HyNap-Nilo. These are Xspray’s second and third product patents in a short time span to be approved on the main market in the United States. The Company previously announced that a patent for HyNap-Dasa has been approved in Japan and the United States, and have ongoing pending applications for several corresponding patents in Japan and Europe among others.
“We now have approved patents in the United States that cover the three products we intend to introduce onto the American market when the original substance patents have expired (during the period 2020-2023). We have systematically and strategically been working with our innovations both in order to realize them into products, and also to secure the value through a satisfactory patent protection. I regard this as a verification of those efforts,” says Per Andersson, CEO, Xspray Pharma.
Xspray Pharma has received a notice of allowance for two patents in the United States regarding the product candidates HyNap-Sora and HyNap-Nilo, both of which are intended for the treatment of certain forms of cancer. These are Xspray’s second and third product patents that are approved on the most important market, the United States. The announcement comes in conjunction with the Company plan to apply for and receive patents regarding composition and method for the three product candidates being under development for the three most important markets, the United States, Europe and Japan.
