Recce Pharmaceuticals Ltd, the Company developing a new class of synthetic anti-infectives, is pleased to announce the Australian Patent Office issued notification of intent to grant Recce a new family four patent, “Process for Preparation of Biologically Active Copolymer,” with expiry in 2041.

“We would like to thank the Australian Patent Office for this notification of intent, which further validates the potential of our new class of anti-infectives to help patients with a broad range of bacterial and viral infections,” said James Graham, Chief Executive Officer of Recce Pharmaceutical. “Once granted, we will have over 40 patents worldwide, with our pipeline on track to be protected until at least January 2041.”

The Australian Patent is expected to grant claims relating to RECCE® 327 (R327) and RECCE® 529 (R529), including:

  • Process for the preparation of RECCE® anti-infectives
  • Use of R327/R529 for the treatment of disease, particularly in the treatment of bacterial and viral infections
  • Specifically, further validating RECCE® anti-infectives from studies in burn wounds, urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, influenza, SARS-CoV-2, and more (bacterial/viral pathogen examples below)
  • Administration by oral, inhalation, transdermal delivery, or by injection (into the bloodstream, intramuscular, and/or intravenous)
  • Administration may also be applied as an aerosol, gel, topical foam, or ointment (or impregnated into a dressing for application to skin or mucous membranes for transdermal or transmucosal delivery)

This is the first of Recce’s wholly-owned family four patents accepted with the intention to grant, with Patent Cooperation Treaty Country (PCT) patent submissions in respective stages of review.
