OTTAWA, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 26, 2020 / Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company”) (TSXV:TBP)(OTCQB:TBPMF), a bio-pharmaceutical company engaged in cannabinoid-derived drug discovery and development, announces granting of a new patent from the Australian Patent Office for patent application number 2016268872. This represents the company’s first foreign patent and a Notice of Acceptance appeared in the Australian Official Journal of Patents on May 7, 2020.
This Australian patent covers pharmaceutical cannabinoid compositions for use in the treatment of ocular inflammation and/or pain. This new patent adds to the United States and European granted patents for the compositions of matter and methods of use for treatment of ocular inflammation and/or pain and ophthalmic formulations in dry eye and uveitis/corneal neuropathic pain.
“This new patent is very exciting for Tetra because it adds to the current patent protection of the Corporation and further adds to our recognition as a world key player in the ophthalmic inflammation and pain markets” commented Dr. Guy Chamberland, CEO and CRO of Tetra. “Having recently accelerated the IND-enabling nonclinical safety program for PPP003, and the granting of an Orphan Drug Designation for a rare disease of the eye, Tetra will be in an excellent position to initiate trials in human ophthalmic indications later this year.”
