The allowed '295 application discloses an improved process for synthesizing anatabine that facilitates larger scale, commercial production, as well as novel salts of anatabine including anatabine citrate. An initial patent, U.S. Patent No. 8,207,346, based on the same disclosure, was awarded on June 26, 2012 and covered claims for the improved process for synthesizing anatabine.  The claims allowed in the '295 application cover anatabine citrate per se as well as formulations containing anatabine citrate. The company, through Rock Creek, continues to pursue several additional patent applications covering dietary formulations containing anatabine, and methods of administering anatabine for the nutritional management of disorders associated with unhealthy levels of inflammation.
