Cartilago SRL (”Cartilago”), a clinical stage regenerative medicine company founded by Cube Labs, announced today that the United States Patent & Trademark Office (”USPTO”) has issued a “Notice of Allowance,” which means that it intends to grant Cartilago’s patent application. Once formally granted, the US patent will provide Cartilago’s regenerative dermal and chondroprotective molecules for combatting osteoarthritis and related pathologies with broad protection in a key market, significantly strengthening the company’s patent portfolio.
The United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has communicated its intention to grant Cartilago’s Patent Application No. 17/277,876. The patent belongs to Cartilago’s second patent family and covers Cartilago’s technology for therapies in development for osteoarthritis and dermal indications, which stimulate the production of new cartilage tissue, as well as the generation of extracellular matrix and collagen, and the endogenous production of hyaluronic acid.
The patent will be granted once the issue fee is paid by Cartilago and necessary formalities have been completed by the USPTO. The patent term will then extend to September 2039, and potentially longer if adjustment is made for any delays in the processing at the patent office.
Related patent applications are pending in Europe, China and Japan.
”This patent provides very important protection for our disease-modifying technologies for osteoarthritis and dermal regeneration,” stated Dr. Filippo Surace, Founder and CEO of Cube Labs. “This is a key market representing over 50% of the global pharmaceutical market and is important territory for innovative therapies such as ours. USPTO’s decision to grant this patent will substantially strengthen our market position.”
Cartilago’s lead pipeline technology is a transformative, disease-modifying treatment for osteoarthritis. In addition, the company announced in November 2022 clinical study results confirming the efficacy of Regen Longevity in reducing periocular wrinkles.
