The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has just issued a patent on NLX-112 (aka befiradol), a drug developed by Neurolixis for treatment of dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease. The invention is based on a clinical trial which tested sustained release formulations of NLX-112, showing that they avoided side effects of dizziness and nausea. The issuance of the patent (US 10,548,885 B2) protects NLX-112 in the US until 2035. The patent has already issued in the European Union, Canada, Australia and Russia, and is pending in other territories.

Adrian Newman-Tancredi, PhD, DSc, CEO of Neurolixis commented, “We are delighted that the patent has issued in the US. Movement disorders are a major healthcare challenge, particularly among aging populations in developed nations, and this patent strengthens the commercial prospects of NLX-112 in a major pharmaceutical market.”
