PATENTS

ZENO established an invention priority date in 2018 using a US provisional patent filing strategy. This filing covered the basis for the Alco-HOLD technology as well as its use for delaying gastric emptying and associated applications for alcohol and drug absorption, as well as carbohydrate digestion and metabolism. On January 25th, 2019 ZENO followed up the provisional application with full patent applications for the US and PCT; these are expected to be published by their respective agencies by August of 2019. During this period, ZENO plans to complete a clinical trial demonstrating the effectiveness of the SOBAR, as compared to other foods, in reducing alcohol bioavailability and using the trial results to further bolster its pending patent applications. ZENO plans to expand the SOBAR intellectual property portfolio based on the results from future clinical testing as well as from distribution of the product to new geographic areas, in particular the EU and Asia.
