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.

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.
