2 February 2010 - French clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company Cytheris SA said today it has received a Notice of Allowance from the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its patent application "Glycosylated IL-7, Preparation and Uses", US Patent Application No.
CEO Michel Morre said that this patent, together with the company's recently issued patent covering IL-7 pharmaceutical composition, provides broad protection for Cytheris' recombinant human interleukin-7 (CYT107), a critical immune-modulator for immune T-cell recovery and enhancement, and that it extends this protection in the US to 2026.
In that light, as with EPO for red blood cells and G-CSF for neutrophils, IL-7 plays a pivotal role in supporting T cell expansion and function, added Cytheris.
