Patrys' researchers published over 45 peer-reviewed articles, and as of October 2010, Patrys' patent portfolio includes around 19 patent families. The portfolio covers all the lead products and patents that have already been issued in all major markets including the US, Europe, Japan, Canada and Australia. Till date, the company has on an average filed three new patent families per year covering new products, targets and supporting technologies.
Commenting on the future plan for the company, Mr Dan Devine, says, "At present we are conducting a first-in-man clinical trial with our lead product PAT-SM6 in melanoma patients. This trial is expected to be finalized in June 2011 and if the doses administered are proven to be safe then we will have the data necessary to progress to a trial with more patients and higher dosing. This follow up trial will focus on melanoma."
On receiving the BioSpectrum Asia Pacific Emerging Company of the Year Award, Mr Devine says, "The Asia Pacific markets have a large number of very successful and impressive early-stage biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. To be chosen as emerging company of the year is a very pleasant surprise, and pleasing to our team of professionals who have worked very hard to get the company where it is today. The award is not only gratifying by recognizing where our company stands today, but provides our team further incentive to keep up the momentum and get our products further into clinical development."
