HARBIN, China, May 26 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Renhuang Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Pink Sheets: RHGP) ("Renhuang" or the "Company"), a developer, manufacturer and distributor of botanical products, bio-pharmaceuticals and traditional Chinese medicines ("TCM"), today announced that the State Intellectual Property Office of the People's Republic of China ("SIPO") successfully completed a preliminary review of the Company's patent application for its advanced proprietary Schisandra Lignin Extraction Method.
Research in China suggests that Schisandra, a wild plant with high medicinal and health benefits, has a protective effect on the liver and is effective as a sedative for treating insomnia and central nervous system depression. Lignin compounds have been shown as a good source of powerful anti-oxidants with promising benefits in fighting major conditions, including HIV, cancer and high blood pressure. Renhuang's proprietary Schisandra lignin extraction method enables the Company to obtain higher purity of lignin from the plant, which may substantially enhance the efficacy of medicines produced from these compounds. The Company's patent application has now entered the SIPO comprehensive examination phase, which is typically a two year process. If approved by the SIPO, the patent will provide Renhuang market exclusivity for its Schisandra-based products for a period of 16 to 18 years.
"We are pleased that our advanced proprietary Schisandra Lignin Extraction Method patent application has passed an important stage in the patent approval process," said Mr. Shaoming Li, Chairman and CEO of Renhuang Pharmaceuticals, Inc. "We continue to strive towards securing patents on our unique proprietary extraction methods, which is an important part of our long-term growth strategy. The successful development of our high-quality, proprietary extraction method provides a strong foundation for advancing the development of Schisandra based products and is expected to strengthen our competitive edge during the commercialization of the product in the future."
