The newly granted patent leads with a product claim covering "a composition comprising a complex of sulforaphane and alpha-cyclodextrin".

Furthermore, patents in Europe, the US and other territories relating to the method of production have also been granted.

Exclusive worldwide rights to the patent are held by Evgen Pharma under the terms of a licence agreement with PharmAgra Labs Inc., the US laboratory that invented SFX-01.


Steve Franklin, CEO of Evgen Pharma, said: ''We are delighted by the grant of this important patent in Europe. This patent has broad claims relating to the composition of the novel drug substance, SFX-01, and as such represents a material development for the Company. It further expands the strength and depth of our intellectual property position across all the key territories with regard to the composition of the product and method of manufacture. The overall intellectual property position around SFX-01 and novel analogues has matured into an impressive patent estate, asserting our exclusive position around this new class of pharmaceutical."
