What is happening?
SONN announces the issuance of U.S. Patent number 11,028,166 entitled ‘Albumin Domain Fusion Protein’ by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent covers the Fully Human Albumin Binding (FHAB) technique of Sonnet and comprises the therapeutic fusion proteins which use FHAB for the targeting and preservation of the tumor and which enable prolonged pharmacokinetics.
Pankaj Mohan, Founder, and CEO stated,
This intellectual property clearance is a crucial milestone that distinguishes Human Serum Albumin from any current or future rival technology that may use it. This serves as a strategic basis for their product pipeline future, as well as providing essential validation for their FHAB platform. SONN is very delighted to bring their distinctive and patent-protected innovation to patients through the development of their product pipeline.
The FHAB platform from Sonnet is made up of a single, completely human FHAB antibody fragment with a high affinity for binding to human albumin. The platform allows for the quick development of a variety of therapeutic biologics using off-the-shelf lock-and-load technology.
John Cini, Co-Founder, and CSO, stated:
FHAB technology offers a mono- or bi-specific mode of action to all Sonnet pipeline assets. The FHAB-derived candidates of Sonnet have demonstrated their reproductive efficiency when evaluated in vivo against several wild cytokines. FHAB shows better penetration in TMEs and increased delivery of payloads to the tumor through both passive and active transport modes, as well as increased pharmacokinetics, based on a linear structure that is adaptable.
