Stratum Nutrition has announced that is has extended its patent portfolio to two new geographic regions.

Parent company ESM Technologies has been given Notices of Allowance for two distinct patents in Europe and Canada.

New permissions

One patent, ‘Methods for Treating NF-kB Dysregulation in a Host in Need Thereof Using Eggshell Membrane Compositions’, was initially issued three years ago in the United States. It has now just been permitted by the European Patent Office.

This invention addresses a wide range of diseases and conditions linked to NF-kB dysregulation, including gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, pulmonary and nervous system.

Kevin Ruff, Stratum’s Sr. Director of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, says: “We are excited to extend our patent protection to additional geographies.

“This is particularly true for our CTX-II clinical model patent, which has now been allowed in the US, Europe, Canada, Japan, and several other countries."

The second patent, ‘Method for Evaluating Articular Joint Therapeutics’, was also first issued in the US. This happened a year earlier than the first, in 2018, and it has now been permitted by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.

In comparison to the other, this invention involves a clinical trial design that uses the cartilage degradation biomarker CTX-II to assess articular joint therapeutics for chondroprotective efficacy.

A global reach

These two patents are still pending in various other additional jurisdictions.

Stratum Nutrition supplies nutrition ingredient solutions for both human and pet health to nutritional product formulators across the globe. Its portfolio includes research-supported, branded ingredients that it claims are “progressive, safe and effective”. These include NEM brand eggshell membrane, ESC brand eggshell calcium, Ahiflower plant-based omegas-3,6,9, Curcumin 95, curQplus, LBiome Lactobacillus ​LB postbiotic, NatAxtin astaxanthin, in addition to oral health probiotics, BLIS K12 and BLIS M18.

Ruff adds: “We have used this patented model in multiple clinical trials to demonstrate that our flagship ingredient, NEM brand eggshell membrane, helps to protect cartilage in exercising individuals.”
