On March 7, 2017, BriaCell filed an international patent application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) to further expand its intellectual property portfolio underlying the Company’s current and anticipated pipeline of whole-cell cancer vaccines, including Bria-IMT™, and related companion diagnostic tests. The PCT application is designed to complement and extend on two patent applications filed by the Company with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in 2016, as well as the Company’s granted patent covering Bria-IMT™ (US 7,674,456 B2). The PCT patent application provides ways to generate additional whole-cell cancer vaccines and strategies for patient-specific selection of the most likely effective vaccine. BriaCell is developing its diagnostic, referred to as BriaDx™, in parallel to Bria-IMT™ in the ongoing Phase I/IIa clinical study in patients with advanced breast cancer.
Additional patent applications are expected to be filed in 2018.
