Issue Notification from USPTO claims the use of BL-8040 for obtaining stem cells.

BioLineRx has announced that an Issue Notification has been received from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for US Patent No. 8,455,450, which claims the use of BL-8040's composition for obtaining hematopoietic precursor cells (e.g. stem cells) for use in bone marrow transplantation.

The issued patent has a term extending to November 2029. This patent is part of BL-8040's expanding patent portfolio, which includes an additional six issued patents on the composition of matter and 29 patent applications on new indications, granted or pending worldwide, providing a strong intellectual property estate around BL-8040.

"We are pleased that the USPTO has issued this patent for a method of obtaining stem cells by administering BL-8040, which further strengthens the patent position we have for this promising compound," stated Dr. Kinneret Savitsky, Chief Executive Officer of BioLineRx.

"BL-8040 is currently undergoing a Phase 2 trial for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, partial results of which are expected towards the end of this year. Robust patent protection provides the foundation to pursue multiple additional oncological and hematological indications," concluded Dr. Savitsky.
