Boston Therapeutics Awarded Key European Patent
Protecting BTI-320 Composition of Matter
LAWRENCE, Mass., April 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boston Therapeutics (the “Company” or “BTI”) (OTCQB:BTHE) is pleased to announce that it has won a patent position argued with the European Patent and Trademark Office this week. The patent has claims for the composition of matter in the use of specific low and high molecular weight mannan polysaccharides to inhibit the enzymes that break down starches into simple sugars, allowing for absorption in the gut. This is a core technology of BTI-320 and SUGARDOWN® products that have been shown to effectively block absorption of sugar to minimize post meal spikes in glucose levels in patients with glucose intolerance or Type 2 diabetes.
Boston Therapeutics CEO Carl W. Rausch successfully defended the case personally at an oral proceeding in Rijswijk, Holland. He noted, “This was an important case to win for the Company and we were confident that we had the data that would convince the Examiners of our inventiveness.” The company intends to pursue global commercialization of these products as an FDA regulated material and as a prescription formulation. This key composition allows for “combination” with many other generic compounds and will breathe new exclusivity and new efficacy opportunities for precision medicine. The growing acceptance of the one to two hour post prandial sugar elevation is a new key technology driver for precise, and easily observed self-blood-glucose management.
