​Lexaria Receives Three Patent Grants and Two Notices of Allowance; Provides Patent Portfolio Guidance

Spotlight News  |

Lexaria Bioscience Corp.  (LXRP) (LXX:CNX), a drug delivery platform innovator, announces strategic additions to its patent portfolio.

Three new Australian patents were granted to Lexaria by the Australian Patent Office, bringing the Company's worldwide patent portfolio to eight issued patents: four each in the US and Australia. All eight patents are within Lexaria's first patent family, "Food and Beverage Compositions Infused With Lipophilic Active Agents and Methods of Use Thereof", and significantly strengthen Lexaria's intellectual property claims in the US and Australia. The three new Australian patents are projected to expire on June 10, 2035.

Meanwhile the US Patent & Trademark Office has issued two new Notices of Allowance for pending patent applications and the Company expects to receive corresponding US issued patents prior to year-end 2018. The Company is concurrently pursuing accelerated examination in Australia based on these US Notices of Allowance and expects two new Australian patents to also be issued prior to year-end 2018. If issued in both the US and Australia, the Company will then hold twelve issued patents within its first patent family and continues to pursue claims in corresponding pending applications within this first patent family around the world.

Lexaria has been working throughout 2018 to expand its patent portfolio as a result of positive developments from its many research projects. The Company defines a patent family as a set of related applications directed to a new particular invention, and that may include US provisional applications, PCT applications, national stage applications including the US, continuations thereof, as well as issued/granted patents.

On April 11, 2018 Lexaria reported that it was then managing six patent families. Lexaria has now filed a total of over 50 patent applications across nine current patent families. The Company is preparing at least seven additional patent applications that will each form the basis for a separate patent family. Lexaria expects to have filed the seven new patent applications before the end of 2018 and will then be managing sixteen patent families. The Company expects many patents to be granted within each of these patent families.

With over 50 patent applications filed worldwide across nine patent families and at least seven more patent families planned, the Company will disclose material patent filings and issuances, but not each patent-related development.
