Inverseon's Asthma Therapy Receives Notice of Allowance; Clinical Trial Highlighted in Lancet


1/14/2009 2:31:24 PM

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 14 -- Inverseon, Inc. (http://www.inverseon.com) announces the receipt of a notice of allowance from the United States Patent Office covering its oral product INV102 for asthma. Additionally, a comment highlighting Inverseon's clinical asthma study was published in the January 10, 2009 issue of The Lancet.

"To our knowledge, this would be the first patent for the utilization of certain beta blockers for the treatment of asthma," commented Amie E. Franklin, PhD, of Inverseon. "A similar story played out 10 years ago in congestive heart failure where certain beta blocker drugs have become billion dollar products."

"The Lancet Comment on Inverseon's human asthma study combined with the notice of allowance from the US Patent Office represent important external validation of Inverseon's approach to asthma. We believe that our oral therapy has the potential to be a significant product," commented William J. Garner, MD, Chairman of Inverseon.

About Inverseon, Inc.

Inverseon's product development programs target significant unmet medical needs and major market opportunities in chronic pulmonary diseases such as asthma, COPD and pulmonary hypertension. Inverseon was founded based on the original work of Prof. Richard Bond of the University of Houston. Professor Bond termed the effects "Paradoxical Pharmacology," based on the divergence of acute versus chronic effects of certain drugs in chronic diseases.
