BioVaxys Technology Corp.
Vancouver, British Columbia (ots/PRNewswire)
– Registrations for international patent and trademark protection from CoviDTH
BioVaxys Technology Corp. (CSE: BIOV), (FRA: 5LB), (OTCQB: BVAXF) (“BioVaxys” or “Company”) announced today that it has patented CoviDTH, its T-cell diagnostic agent for detecting an immune response to SARS CoV-2, by filing an international patent application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”), has expanded to include broad geographic market coverage outside the United States. Although the CoviDTH diagnostic results are intended to be interpreted visually by a trained technician or healthcare provider, other claims include data acquisition and analysis through methods such as optical, infrared, and ultrasound image processing.
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”), a patent treaty with more than 150 member countries, enables an invention to be patented simultaneously in a large number of countries by filing a single “international” patent application, instead of filing multiple separate national or regional patent applications.
BioVaxys also recently filed international filings for the CoviDTH trademark in select markets such as Canada, Mexico, the European Union and the United Kingdom. Six months ago, the company applied to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) to register its “CoviDTH” trademark in the United States. Trademark applications in certain jurisdictions may be treated as if they were filed on the filing date of the U.S. application, provided that applications are filed within six months of the U.S. filing date. BioVaxys can apply for the trademark registration of CoviDTH in other countries at a later date, but without the benefit of the earlier US filing date.
James Passin, CEO of BioVaxys, said: “Given the urgent need to commercialize a low-cost diagnostic of T-cell immunity to Covid-19 in the context of the global pandemic, we believe it is critical to protect intellectual property in key international markets as we continue to work towards filing an IND in the United States. “
BioVaxys makes no claims, express or implied, that it is able to treat the SAR-CoV-2 virus at this point in time.
