This marks the second U.S. CLARISOY patent awarded to Burcon in the last two months. The previously announced notice of allowance has also now officially been granted as U.S. Patent No. 8,389,040.
“We are encouraged to have a second U.S. patent grant so soon after obtaining our first,” said Johann F. Tergesen, Burcon's president and
COO. “Our patent strategy is being rewarded with positive results, strengthening our already broad intellectual property portfolio.”
Burcon's patent portfolio now consists of 224 issued patents in various countries, including 38 in the U.S., as well as more than 400 active patent applications, including 81 additional U.S. patent applications.
