Expands protection for company’s novel respiratory drug.

Kamada Ltd. announced that the Company was granted two key patents related to its novel Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) product to treat respiratory diseases. Kamada was granted Russian Patent No. 2472524, entitled “Alpha-1 Antitrypsin for treating exacerbation episodes of pulmonary diseases,” and an additional Australian Patent No. 2007213344 (co-owned with PARI PHARMA GMBH), entitled “Pulmonary delivery of Alpha-1 proteinase inhibitor.”

These new patents continue to build upon Kamada’s strong intellectual property portfolio for our family of AAT products to treat a variety of pulmonary diseases using inhaled AAT. The Australian patent underscores the novelty of the unique combination of inhaled AAT with the eFlow inhalation device. The newly issued Russian patent is related to the use of Kamada’s inhaled AAT for the treatment of exacerbation events in different respiratory diseases. These two patents joins a family of patents that were already issued in different countries worldwide, including the U.S. and the European Union, as well as to currently pending patents which are expected to be issued.

“The inhaled AAT is currently in a late-stage clinical trial in Europe and Canada for the treatment of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), a genetic disease that can cause serious, life threatening lung disease in adults,” said David Tsur, the Chief Executive Officer of Kamada. “Securing global protection for our novel technologies and its various methods of use is critically important as we develop highly-purified AAT to address major unmet needs in various pulmonary diseases and advance toward commercial development.”
