ValiRx gets patent approval in the US

ValiRx, the clinical stage biotechnology company, has received patent approval in the US for its lead therapeutic compound, VAL201, which is in clinical trials.

The patent application covers the molecule and use of compounds in pharmaceutically acceptable products. The patent coverage also includes a wide variety of derivatives, modifications and analogues of the compounds and their mode of action.

Allowance of this US patent for VAL201 will represent one of the cornerstones of the company's commercial strategy, since ValiRx has already secured patent protection in several other territories, including Europe.

The compound is currently in a Phase I/II study primarily assessing safety and tolerability of VAL201 and its effect in the treatment of prostate cancer and other solid tumours.

So far VAL201 has met and exceeds the predicted safety and tolerability criteria set for the trial. Subjects have shown preliminary therapeutic efficacy and significant changes in their PSA levels related to treatment with VAL201. These are in line with pre-clinical studies, which have shown efficacy in prostate, breast and ovarian cancer models as well as addressing endometriosis or hormone induced abnormal cell growth in women.

Dr Satu Vainikka, CEO of ValiRx, said: "It is timely and very exciting to receive this notification of allowance for the VAL201 patent. This being only weeks after we received approval from the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and Research Ethics Committee for the Company to expand its VAL201 trial to more speedily reach VAL201's full therapeutic potential and potential anti-cancer impact.

"This US allowance means we can proceed to strengthen the VAL201 patent portfolio and, once granted, will provide ValiRx with patent protection in all its largest commercial markets globally. ValiRx looks forward optimistically to its future prospects."
