uBiome Receives Patent for Diagnostics and Therapeutics for Microbiome Functional Features
Date:12/27/2018

uBiome, the leader in microbial genomics, announced the issue of patent number 9,758,839 entitled “Method and System for Microbiome-Derived Diagnostics and Therapeutics for Conditions Associated with Microbiome Functional Features” 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 characterizing and diagnosing a condition associated with microbiome functional features such as anxiety, chronic fatigue, depression, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and sprue, 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 a condition associated with microbiome functional features in individuals and in designing therapies for these conditions, which may include the modification of the microbiota using prebiotics and probiotics. Together, these potential impacts could improve the treatment and management of these microbiome functional features in individuals.

“Obtaining this patent exemplifies uBiome’s commitment to achieving its mission of making the microbiome useful to people,” Jessica Richman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of uBiome, said. “We are thrilled to be issued this patent as we continue expanding our intellectual property.”
