Cava Healthcare Announces Notification of Patent Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a New Class of Alzheimer's Disease Drugs

Cava Healthcare Inc.

Patent Provides Cava Healthcare Exclusivity

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - November 20, 2023Cava Healthcare Inc. (Cava), a biopharmaceutical company focused on commercialization and development of therapeutics to improve the lives of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has published notification of Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application Serial Number 17/025,241. This application includes claims intended to protect a drug-based new approach for treating Alzheimer’s disease. A Notice of Allowance is issued after the USPTO has determined that an invention is novel. After issuance, Cava plans to raise funds immediately to commence clinical trials on its lead compounds for treating Alzheimer’s disease.

"This allowance is significant in that it provides Cava with a potentially dominant intellectual property position on a new approach for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.   We have completed several successful proof-of concept studies in preclinical models of Alzheimer’s disease where the results clearly demonstrate that this innovative approach reduces amyloid plaque burden in the brain resulting in a concurrent recovery of cognitive memory. These studies underscore the promising nature of this new approach,” stated Dr. Wilfred Jefferies, CSO of Cava.

The issuance of this Notice of Allowance marks a significant milestone in Cava's pursuit of safeguarding the commercial viability of drugs aimed at neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. This protection is being achieved through a strategic combination of patent coverage, regulatory exclusivity, and trade secrets, further bolstered by leveraging additional barriers to entry. Numerous patent applications have either been issued or allowed by the USPTO, and a considerable number of additional applications are currently pending in the United States. Beyond the U.S., Cava is actively pursuing patent applications in various jurisdictions, including a method of use patent application in Europe, for which Cava has recently announced the receipt of an Intention to Grant letter.

The Company additionally announces the resignation of Mr. Theo Warkentin as Director, and we extend our gratitude for his contributions to Cava.
