uBiome Receives Patent for Diagnostics and Therapeutics for Endocrine System Conditions
Date:12/28/2018

uBiome, the leader in microbial genomics, announced the issue of patent number 9,760,676 entitled “Method and System for Microbiome-Derived Diagnostics and Therapeutics for Endocrine System Conditions” by the US Patent and Trademark Office on September 12, 2017 with a priority date of October 21, 2014. The patent is an invention by uBiome collaborators Dr. Zachary Apte, Dr. Daniel Almonacid, Dr. Jessica Richman, and Dr. Siavosh Rezvan Behbahani, and expands upon its current intellectual property portfolio.

The patented technology involves diagnosing an endocrine system condition such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, metabolic disease, obesity, and Type I and II diabetes, and generating a therapy model using biological samples from uBiome’s proprietary database.

This issuance will lead to further development in predicting the likelihood of occurrence of endocrine system conditions in individuals and in designing therapies for these endocrine system conditions, which may include the modification of the microbiota using prebiotics and probiotics. Together, these potential impacts could improve the treatment and management of endocrine system conditions in individuals.

“This patent allows uBiome to continue its mission of advancing the science of the microbiome and making it useful to people, especially those affected by chronic endocrine conditions, which in some cases are difficult to diagnose and manage,” Jessica Richman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of uBiome, said. “The expansion of our patent portfolio and intellectual property demonstrates our dedication to achieving this mission.”
