ARECOR GRANTED KEY CANADIAN PATENT FOR PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGY ENABLING HIGHLY
CONCENTRATED BIOTHERAPEUTICS

 

Cambridge, UK, 11 November 2021. Arecor Therapeutics plc (AIM: AREC), the
biopharmaceutical group advancing today's therapies to enable healthier lives,
continues to build a strong patent portfolio protecting its proprietary
Arestat™ technology.  Arecor is pleased to announce that the Canadian
Intellectual Property Office has granted a key patent, CA2861402, with claims
protecting a specific part of the technology used in the development of
stable, low-viscosity formulations of highly concentrated protein
therapeutics, including monoclonal antibodies, fusion proteins and more
complex protein constructs.

 

Dr Jan Jezek, Chief Scientific Officer at Arecor, commented: "The recently
granted Canadian patent is an important milestone in our rapidly growing
patent portfolio. We have been very successful in patenting unique
combinations of excipients that improve considerably critical quality
attributes of protein and peptide-based therapeutics, enabling their
convenient delivery. This new patent relates specifically to concentrated
protein formulations, which is one of the most challenging areas of the
biopharmaceutical drug delivery. It strengthens our IP portfolio and our
position as a world leader in the formulation of superior biotherapeutics and
vaccines."

 

The Group's Arestat™ technology enables superior product profiles across a
broad range of therapies, including various types of biopharmaceuticals,
specialty hospital products as well as vaccine compositions with improved
stability. Arecor partners with leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology
companies to deliver enhanced formulations of their therapeutic products under
a technology licensing model, as well as developing an internal portfolio of
proprietary products in diabetes and other indications.

 

A combination of high therapeutic dose and the highly desirable low injection
volume often leads to a need for very highly concentrated formulations of
protein therapeutics. Achieving such concentrated formulations can be
exceptionally challenging. The granted Canadian patent provides Arecor's
proprietary technology with broad protection in the formulation of highly
concentrated compositions of therapeutic proteins, enabling convenient
subcutaneous delivery of high value products to a higher specification
compared with other approaches. It adds to patents already issued from the
same patent family by Patent Offices in Europe, the US and India.

Arecor has invested in building a strong patent portfolio to protect the
Arestat™ technology platform. The Group's intellectual property portfolio
currently comprises 33 patent families, including >50 granted patents in
Europe in the US and in other key territories.
