On July 15, 2020, Evox Therapeutics Ltd, a leading exosome therapeutics company, is pleased to announce that the company has been granted a key patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This newly issued patent adds to the expanding foundational patent estate held by Evox and further reinforces the company's position within the field of exosome-mediated RNA drug delivery.

This is another significant development that gives Evox dominant coverage in exosome-mediated RNA delivery, as well as key steps in the manufacturing process." Antonin de Fougerolles, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of Evox, added: "Over the past decade, Evox has built an unrivaled global patent estate with broad and deep coverage of the key applications of exosome therapeutics. This recent grant represents a great addition of our IP position and further reinforces Evox's leading position as the partner of choice in the field of exosome therapeutics."
