Share

Infant Bacterial Therapeutics AB (IBT) today announces that the Australian Patent Office has granted a patent entitled: A method of activating lactic acid bacteria, which protects the formulation of Lactobacillus reuteri including IBP-9414. IBP-9414 is currently in Phase III development for the prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and improvement of feeding tolerance in preterm infants.

The ambition for IBP-9414 is to become the world’s first approved pharmaceutical grade probiotic drug to prevent life threatening infant diseases including NEC, by promoting healthy stomach- and bowel development in premature infants.

The invention covers a novel way to activate the freeze-dried bacteria and corresponding patent applications are pending in additional important future markets including the US and Europe. This patent further increases the existing protection of IBT’s drug candidate IBP-9414 for which both Orphan Drug Exclusivity and biological data protection have been granted in the USA and EU.

The patent provides coverage until 2036. IBP-9414 is intended to be marketed in Australia once market approval has been obtained.

“We are very pleased that IBT has succeeded in expanding our intellectual property protection for IBP-9414 through the approved patent in an important additional market” says Staffan Strömberg, Chief Executive Officer of IBT.
