Marinomed Biotech receives US Patent approval for the Marinosolv® technology and invests in a series of new patents

  • US patent significantly extends geographical protection and complements patents in Europe and Greater China
  • Comprehensive patent protection to drive growth for pipeline products and Solv4U technology partnerships
  • Marinomed to resume Convertible Notes Funding Program with Nice & Green to finance new patents

Korneuburg, Austria, 27 December 2022 – Marinomed Biotech AG, listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange (VSE:MARI), announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted the patent US11510859 covering the Marinosolv technology and its solubility enhancing properties. Specifically, the patent protects Marinosolv as a method for improving the aqueous solubility of drugs that are hardly soluble in aqueous formulations. By increasing solubility, the Marinosolv technology can significantly improve existing and development-stage drugs for the treatment of a multitude of diseases.

Dr. Andreas Grassauer, CEO of Marinomed, says: “The granting of the US patent proves once again the outstanding innovative strength of Marinomed and our Marinosolv technology. We have thus laid the foundations in all relevant markets to use our technology to increase the solubility and bioavailability of poorly soluble active ingredients and enable the development of new therapeutics. This holds true for the technology and our Marinosolv-derived pipeline, including our two drug candidates Budesolv and Tacrosolv, as well as for our Solv4U technology partnerships. The comprehensive patent protection in Europe, China and the U.S. is a strong asset to attract additional partners to our technology and will support our growth efforts.”

As a science-based biotechnology company, where intellectual property (IP) development is one of the key strategic pillars, Marinomed is currently also working on drafting and filing a series of new patents to protect the intellectual property generated in the company’s research area of drug delivery. To support the financing of these value-creating growth projects in the current volatile capital market environment, Marinomed resumes the issuing of tranches of the Convertible Notes Funding Program with the investment company Nice & Green after the program was paused in July this year. In addition to financing new patents, these funds will be used to finance Carragelose sales growth in a still challenging supply chain. “We have a full pipeline and intend to further protect our intellectual property by drafting and filing patents to generate licensable assets. In the current stock market environment, we appreciate the flexibility that the financing agreement with Nice & Green offers us, and we will use the capital to add further value to our portfolio,” concluded Marinomed CFO Pascal Schmidt.
