Asarina Pharma granted US patent for Sepranolone for Tourette syndrome, OCD and pathological gambling
(Stockholm, 8 June 2021.) The US Patent and Trademark Office has granted a patent for Sepranolone for the treatment of Tourette, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and pathological gambling. CEO Peter Nordkild: “The powerful neurosteroid Allopregnanolone (ALLO) seems to be the missing link in a raft of stress-related disorders, from Tourette to OCD, characterized by tics and compulsions. Sepranolone is essentially patented isoallopregnanolone, the endogenous compound that inhibits ALLO. This patent confirms Sepranolone’s enormous clinical potential.”The new patent is valid until 2038.
