Dicot applies for US patent

Uppsala, August 29, 2023. The pharmaceutical company Dicot announces that a patent application has been submitted to the US Patent Office. The application covers the new oral drug formulation of the candidate LIB-01 which is now used in the ongoing phase 1 clinical study.

Today, Dicot submitted a patent application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It concerns patenting a method of formulating LIB-01 that enables an oral intake of the active substance. The new oral formulation was developed in 2022 and is now being used in the company's clinical phase 1 study.

Dicot announced last year that the company had submitted a new patent application covering new production methods and chemical compounds. Now Dicot is converting yet another of the company's trade secrets into a patent. The application is a so-called provisional patent application that aims to get an approved patent in the United States. Shortly, this will be followed by an application to the Swedish Patent and Registration Office where the application can later be expanded to other markets.

"The ambition is to continue to reinforce and globalize our patent portfolio and we are working very actively with this. With new patents that provide market exclusivity for 20 years, we will strengthen our position and the value of LIB-01 further for a very long time", comments Elin Trampe, CEO at Dicot.
