Princeton, NJ, July 6, 2023 ─ iQure Pharma Inc. (iQure), a US-based global biotech company, has been awarded a second patent for iQure-007, its novel therapeutic currently in development for the treatment of epilepsy.
“We are delighted with this second patent being granted for iQ-007,” said iQure Chief Executive Officer Pawel Zolnierczyk. “This is an important step in the process of commercializing this promising asset for the treatment of Drug Resistant Epilepsy. Patent protections are pivotal to maintaining the value of our assets. With the award of this second patent, we now have expanded protection and even better potential for securing market position.”
