“After more than 30 years of translational research developing microbial therapies for patients, I’m thrilled to see the latest additions to Finch’s patent estate which leave the Company uniquely positioned to continue to unlock the therapeutic potential of the microbiome,” said Tom Borody, M.D. who is a named inventor on 27 of Finch’s patents.”
Finch’s industry-leading patent portfolio consists of 34 issued U.S. and foreign patents and more than 60 pending patent applications, which have broad applicability across the microbiome field. Reflecting the early leadership of its founders in building this field, Finch’s patent portfolio includes composition of matter patents with priority dates as early as 2000, the earliest in the industry. This broad estate covers both FSM and RSM products, with issued claims covering pharmaceutical compositions containing bacterial strains of the genus Clostridium among other important composition of matter and method of use claims.
