Intellect Neurosciences Responds to Official Action by United States Patent and Trademark Office in Relation to its ANTISENILIN® Alzheimer's Patent Application

NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Intellect Neurosciences, Inc. (OTCBB: ILNS), a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of disease-modifying therapeutic agents for the treatment of Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases announced today that it has filed a response and request for continued examination (RCE) in its antibody methods application Serial  No. 10/084,380, one of several applications pending in the United States in relation to the Company's ANTISENILIN® platform technology.   Corresponding patents have been issued in Europe, Japan, China and several other countries. The response is accompanied by a written declaration of support from an internationally recognized US-based expert in the field of therapeutic antibodies.  

"We are gratified once again by the support of this internationally recognized expert who previously was instrumental in persuading the patent examiner to withdraw different grounds for rejection of the same patent application," commented Daniel G. Chain, Ph.D., Chairman and CEO of Intellect Neurosciences.  "We are optimistic that the expert explanation will help to address and overcome the Patent Office position on our pending patent application and lead to an allowance of our method of treatment claims."

About Intellect Neurosciences, Inc.

Intellect Neurosciences, Inc. develops innovative approaches aimed at arresting or preventing Alzheimer's disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases especially focused on proteinopathies. Intellect's pipeline includes small neuroprotective molecules and neoepitope-based immunotherapy approaches including monoclonal antibodies and vaccines targeting beta amyloid and abnormal tau proteins. The company is currently developing three separate platform technologies:  ANTISENILIN® is Intellect's Alzheimer's beta amyloid monoclonal antibody platform technology which underlies several products in advanced clinical development and is licensed to major pharmaceutical companies.  The company's RECALL-VAX technology is a proprietary Alzheimer's vaccine with therapeutic and prophylactic potential.   The company's CONJUMAB-A platform is based on antibody drug conjugates with potential applications to treat a broad spectrum of proteinopathies including Alzheimer's disease, Early-Onset Familial Alzheimer's disease, cerebral angiopathy, age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and traumatic brain injury. IN-N01-OX2 is the company's most advanced internal candidate, a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting beta amyloid conjugated to a naturally occurring small drug molecule with potent neuroprotective properties.  Thus, IN-N01-OX2, incorporates combined features of the ANTISENILIN and CONJUMAB-A platform technologies. The company recently licensed OX1 a small molecule multimodal antioxidant to ViroPharma, Inc. for Friedreich's Ataxia and other neurodegenerative diseases.
