ProcCluster® from portfolio company inflamed pharma granted US patent
01.11.2022 / 07:00 CET/CEST


Xlife Sciences AG (SIX: XLS) announced today that its portfolio company inflamed pharma has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the manufacture of the active ingredient ProcCluster® and for its use in pharmaceutical dosage forms and their production.

Oliver R. Baumann, CEO of Xlife Sciences, commented: “This patent significantly strengthens inflamed pharma’s intellectual property position in the pharmaceutical market. We are pleased to be able to make our active ingredient ProcCluster® available also to patients in the USA in the future.”

The granted US patent 11,440,872 covers on the one hand the production of the active ingredient of ProcCluster® as such, and on the other hand the production of various forms of application, for example capsules and tablets for oral administration, semi-solid preparations such as creams, gels and ointments for dermal application or liquid variants for use as inhalation as well as infusion or injection solutions. The underlying technology of procaine clustering – in which the active ingredient is incorporated into a protective shell – can be extended to other suitable and interesting active ingredient candidates, with currently unfavorable formulation properties. Thus, this principle represents a very good option for modifying the active ingredient properties and opens up a wide field of applications for the respective candidates.


The active ingredient ProcCluster® is based on the active substance procaine and is manufactured by inflamed pharma in compliance with GMP. Procaine is used in various indications such as neural therapy for the treatment of chronic pain. inflamed pharma is seeking approval for the oral application of ProcCluster® with an indication in the inflammatory pain area; Germany/Europe is foreseen as the first market.
