Lipigon announces Notice of Allowance Covering US Lipisense Patent

Lipigon Pharmaceuticals (Lipigon) today announces that the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance for the Company's patent application covering Lipisense for the treatment of cardiometabolic disease.

According to the plan, Lipigon has received a Notice of Allowance, which means that the USPTO intends to grant the patent after completing certain formal steps. Once granted, the patent will be valid until 2039.

Lipigon's patent application 17/667,449 in the USA protects the use of antisense oligonucleotides targeting specific sequences of ANGPTL4 mRNA for reducing ANGPTL4 expression as treatment of cardiometabolic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia (HTG), dyslipidemia, pancreatitis, metabolic syndrome, and familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS).

"This is an important step for Lipigon in the process of protecting the intellectual property rights of the Lipisense program. Since the US is the single biggest pharmaceutical market, this is strategically important for the company," says CEO Dr. Stefan K Nilsson.
