BioAlliance Pharma SA was granted two patents by the American and Japanese Offices protecting two of its products; Oravig® (miconazole) and Sitavig® (acyclovir).

With these two new patents, BioAlliance Pharma’s patent portfolio consists of 19 families of published patents, including 285 patents and patent applications for technologies or innovative products. More than 70 % of the portfolio is composed of patents providing long-term protection for the products.

“The industrial property is a key asset for BioAlliance and lies at the core of the Company’s growth strategy. The reinforcement and the territory expansion of our patents allow to ensure the largest and longest possible protection, optimizing our programs’ value. One such example is the grant of these two new patents”, declared Judith Greciet, CEO of BioAlliance Pharma.

New protection of Sitavig® in Japan

In addition to the first Japanese patent protecting the mucoadhesive tablet, and further to the patent protections obtained for Europe, the US and China, this grant is the first one specific to Sitavig® in Japan for the treatment of labial herpes.

New protection of Oravig® in the US

The American patent office announced its decision to deliver a new grant covering Oravig®, a miconazole mucoadhesive tablet for the treatment of oropharyngeal candidiasis. This new patent enables BioAlliance to expand the scope of protection already given by two US patents protecting Oravig® until 2022.

“These two patent grants strengthen and extend the protection for both Oravig® and Sitavig® in the US and Japan respectively while stressing out the innovative nature of the Lauriad® mucoadhesive tablet formulation. Oravig®’s patent reinforces and ensures its protection for about ten more years on the US territory while coinciding with the commercial product launch initiated by Vestiq”, stated Aude Michel, Head of Corporate Business Development of BioAlliance Pharma. “The protection obtained for Sitavig® until 2027 on the Japanese territory should reinforce its attractiveness in our search for commercial partners on an international level”.
