Peregrine Pharmaceuticals Awarded Two New U.S. Patents Broadening Its Targeted Anti-Phospholipid Patent Portfolio
Date:6/16/2008

PE agents may be well-suited for use in some of these broad anti-viral applications."

The science underlying the two new patents was presented in April 2008 at the 95th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Immunologists by Dr. Melina Soares of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.* She presented data showing that similar to PS, the target for Peregrine's bavituximab program, the aminophospholipid PE is normally located on the inside of cell membranes, but becomes exposed on the external surface of enveloped viruses and virus-infected cells. Using a biotin-conjugated form of the peptide drug duramycin, which is known to bind to PE, Dr. Soares and her colleagues demonstrated that exposed PE could serve as a broad-spectrum target for anti-viral therapy. Specifically, they showed that duramycin linked to biotin neutralized multiple enveloped viruses and that it showed therapeutic efficacy in a lethal mouse model of cytomegalovirus.

U.S. Patent #7,378,386 issued on May 27, 2008 and U.S. Patent #7,384,909 issued on June 10, 2008.
