Pharmaceutical companies with patents in these areas should find these assets interesting," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
The first portfolio of patents covers topical formulations of an off-patent pharmaceutical for the treatment of mucositis and weight loss. Mucositis is a common side effect that occurs in patients during cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiography. Conventionally, topical analgesics such as lidocaine and mouthwashes are used in the treatment of mucositis, however these techniques are not effective and can cause cachexia or weight loss, muscle atrophy, fatigue, weakness and significant loss of appetite. The drug formulations disclosed in this portfolio are non-steroidal, have anti-inflammatory actions, and do not affect the normal cells during treatment preventing the condition of mucositis and cachexia. Further, this medicament also prevents the formation of ulcerative lesions in the patients.
The patent in the second portfolio for sale claims methods for treating a viral or parasitic infection. Every year diseases such as Hepatitis C, AIDS, and anthrax result in the death of millions of people worldwide. Various advanced therapeutics or drugs are being used for their treatment; however, these drugs have numerous side effects and do not eradicate the root cause of the disease effectively, but instead only slow down its development. This patent for sale provides therapeutic methods for the treatment of these viral and parasitic diseases with reduced toxic effects.
