Xspray Pharma has received a “Notice of allowance” for a patent in the United States regarding the HyNap-Dasa product candidate intended for the treatment of certain cancers. It is the first product-related patent granted for the company’s product candidate in the most important market, USA. The message is in accordance with the company’s plan to apply for and obtain patents for the composition and methodology of all three product candidates under development in the three most important markets, USA, Europe and Japan.
“We are focusing on launching our product candidates primarily in the US market. A well-functioning patent strategy fills an important function and gaining this approval supports our goal of creating a strong patent portfolio,” further commented Xsprey’s CEO, Per Andersson.
Xspray Pharma’s shares were introduced on September 28th on Nasdaq First North after a successful new issue which led the company to SEK 132 million before issue costs. The plan is now to use the capital to develop three product candidates and prospective cancer drugs based on the company’s proprietary technology, and to introduce the first products on the US market in the 2020-2023 period.
