NurExone Announces Expansion of ExoPTEN Patent Coverage with Notice of Allowance for Japanese Patent Application

TORONTO and HAIFA, Israel, June 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NurExone Biologic Inc. (TSXV: NRX), (OTCQB: NRXBF), (Germany: J90) (the “Company” or “NurExone”), a pioneering biopharmaceutical company developing regenerative medicine therapies, is pleased to announce that the Japan Patent Office recently issued a Notice of Allowance for an ExoPTEN patent, covering innovative Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) comprising a phosphatase and tensin homolog (“PTEN”) inhibitor and their application use. The Company’s ExoPTEN drug, currently under development, aims to promote nerve growth and regeneration after acute spinal cord injury by inhibiting the PTEN protein.

The patent, titled “Vesicles Comprising a PTEN Inhibitor and Uses of Same”, was originally submitted by the Technion Research and Development Foundation Ltd. (“Technion”) and Ramot at Tel Aviv University Ltd. It is the first patent licensed by NurExone from Technion and describes a fundamental element of the Company’s ExoPTEN nanodrug under development for acute spinal cord injury.

Dr. Bat-Ami Gotliv, Patent Attorney for NurExone, stated, “The allowance of this patent application in Japan safeguards NurExone’s technology in a vital Asian market. This approval, alongside the corresponding patents granted in the United States of America and Russia, underscores the novelty and inventive step of NurExone’s technology.”

Dr. Lior Shaltiel, CEO of NurExone, explained, “This patent, which belongs to the ExoPTEN family in our extensive IP portfolio, is included in the exclusive worldwide licensing from the Technion. We are making progress using ExoPTEN, our first nanodrug, and other newly developed technologies as we move towards clinical trials in humans and commercialization.”

Mr. Yoram Drucker, Co-Founder, Chairman and VP Strategic Development, elaborated, “We see Japan as an important territory for our products and technology. This expands our potential market to the Far East, and if we succeed in showing benefits in other Central Nerve System indications, we may dramatically increase our market potential.”

A Notice of Allowance represents the final stage prior to the grant, pending the Company’s payment of the registration fees.

Further to the Company’s press release dated January 17, 2024, the Company and bullVestor Medien GmbH (“BullVestor”) have entered into an amending agreement (the “Amending Agreement”) to the investor relations agreement dated January 9, 2024 (the “IR Agreement”) pursuant to which BullVestor will continue to provide investor relations services to the Company until May 15, 2025, at a monthly rate of C$59,000. The Amending Agreement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”) approval. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Amending Agreement, either party may terminate the IR Agreement on 15 days’ notice.

The advertising and communications will occur in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland).

The consideration does not include any securities of the Company. BullVestor does not have any interest, directly or indirectly, in the Company or its securities, or any right or intent to acquire such an interest.

Aside from the IR Agreement, as amended, the Company does not have any relationship with BullVestor. BullVestor is located in Austria.

Forward-looking statements involve significant risk, uncertainties and assumptions. Many factors could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results discussed or implied in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to risks related to the Company’s early stage of development; lack of revenues to date; government regulation; market acceptance for its products; rapid technological change; dependence on key personnel; protection of the Company’s intellectual property; dependence on the Company’s strategic partners; the fact that preclinical drug development is uncertain, and the drug product candidates of the Company may never advance to clinical trials; the fact that results of preclinical studies and early-stage clinical trials may not be predictive of the results of later stage clinical trials; the uncertain outcome, cost, and timing of product development activities, preclinical studies and clinical trials of the Company; the uncertain clinical development process, including the risk that clinical trials may not have an effective design or generate positive results; the potential inability to obtain or maintain regulatory approval of the drug product candidates of the Company; the introduction of competing drugs that are safer, more effective or less expensive than, or otherwise superior to, the drug product candidates of the Company; the initiation, conduct, and completion of preclinical studies and clinical trials may be delayed, adversely affected or impacted by unforeseen issues; the potential inability to obtain adequate financing; the potential inability to obtain or maintain intellectual property protection for the drug product candidates of the Company; the NurExone platform technology being unable to offer novel solutions to drug companies; risk that the Company will not pay the registration fees prior to the deadline or at all; risks that the Company’s intellectual property and technology won’t have the intended impact on the Company and/or its business; and the risks discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” on pages 29 to 36 of the Company’s Annual Information Form dated March 30, 2023, a copy of which is available under the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca.
