isn't DRACO patented?


Recommended Posts

Hi! i read a little bit in your website and understand that you are working on a derivative of DRACO called Vtose? as this sounds very exciting and a great development, I am wondering, isn't DRACO patented in a way that will disallow commercial development of this kind of drug until it's expired? 

 

by the way, do you think DRACO / Vtose will be effective against HPV?

Yes, DRACO was patented. However, MIT/LL recently abandoned those patents, which we confirmed with their technical licensing office. It's also shown on the patent website:

https://patents.google.com/patent/US20140142026A1/en

HPV is a small, double-stranded DNA virus, without an envelope. DRACO was previously tested and found effective against 3 viruses with the same characteristics: Reovirus, Adenovirus, and Murine Adenovirus. On that basis, there's good reason to believe that it should be effective against HPV as well.

Does this mean DRACO now cannot be patented? (similar to how Vitamin C cannot be patented)

To add to what Rick said: it's true that it cannot be patented, but it's also true that there are many other potentially patentable aspects that become evident after investigating it deeply, as we have.
