Patent allowance strengthens IP portfolio and positions company in pursuing drug delivery using its neural probes
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: NMTC) (“NeuroOne” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, announced today that, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) issued a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application 16/812,702, titled “Agent-Delivering Neural Probe Devices and Related Systems and Methods,” which covers novel electrodes that can operate as a standard neural electrode that also delivers a treatment agent to a target area of the patient’s brain.
A Notice of Allowance is issued by the USPTO after examination of a patent application and a determination that a patent should be granted from the application. NeuroOne anticipates the issuance of the patent in the coming months.
In addition to this allowed patent application, NeuroOne’s patent portfolio includes the two other allowed patent applications, one issued U.S. patent, eight pending U.S. applications, and several foreign applications covering a wide variety of thin-film electrode technologies, including both neural and spinal cord electrodes with unique structures that optimize the functionality and minimized profile of those electrodes.
Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne, commented, “The Company continues to strengthen its existing patent portfolio with this recent notification by the USPTO. These allowances are especially important as we advance our efforts to partner with existing biopharma companies to offer the next combination device that can provide both drug delivery and sEEG recording capabilities.”
NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation is a developmental stage company committed to providing minimally invasive and hi-definition solutions for EEG recording, brain stimulation and ablation solutions for patients suffering from epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, essential tremors, chronic pain due to failed back surgeries, and other related neurological disorders that may improve patient outcomes and reduce procedural costs. The Company may also pursue applications for other areas such as depression, mood disorders, pain, incontinence, high blood pressure, and artificial intelligence.
