OXNARD, Calif., March 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CURE Pharmaceutical (OTCQB:CURR), (“CURE”) or (the “company”), a leading disruptive drug delivery technology company serving the pharmaceutical, biotech, veterinarian, medical foods markets, and new chemical entities (NCEs), today announces the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Patent #9,561,182 covering the method of manufacture and method of use of the company’s proprietary oral thin film technology for the administration of medicaments in order to treat animals. The demand for US animal health products is more than $12 billion per year.
“This patent adds an important aspect to our intellectual property portfolio, as it now ensures many of the same protections we enjoy in human products to animal products, which can be used in a variety of contexts, from households with pets to farms,” said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. “This is also further validation of our unique approach to the development of oral thin film and our proprietary CureFilm technology.”
The patent allowance covers the company’s proprietary CureFilm™ technology delivering a variety of medicinal products specifically oriented toward and flavored for a wide variety of animals including house pets (cats, dogs, guinea pigs, mice, hamsters, ferrets, rabbits reptiles), certain livestock (sheep, cows, horses, goats, swine) and apes/primates.
“This action also represents an important expansion in the methodology veterinarians may have moving forward to deliver important medicines to the animals for whom they care,” added Greg Strathe, DVM, CURE Pharmaceutical advisory board member, and co-owner SAHO, Small Animal Hospital of Owasso, Okla. “The expansion of our ability to improve care continues to be a priority for those in veterinary medicine, and I believe that this approach is a true innovation.”
