Sigyn Therapeutics™ Discloses PCT Patent Submission to Enhance Chemotherapy Delivery and Reduce Cancer Treatment Toxicity
SAN DIEGO, CA, Oct. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Sigyn Therapeutics, Inc. (“Sigyn” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: SIGY), a development-stage medical technology company, today disclosed the submission of a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application entitled: “SYSTEM AND METHODS TO ENHANCE CHEMOTHERAPY DELIVERY AND REDUCE TOXICITY.”
The PCT submission is associated with medical technologies being advanced by Sigyn Therapeutics to enhance the clinical benefit of chemotherapeutic drugs administered to cancer patients. Among therapeutic technologies being developed by the Company are ChemoPrepTM and ChemoPureTM. Chemotherapy is the most commonly administered drug to treat cancer, the second leading cause of death in the United States. Despite utility across a broad-spectrum of cancers, there remains a critical need to optimize chemotherapy delivery as less than 5% of administered doses reach their tumor-site target.
ChemoPrepTM is being advanced to extract circulating molecules that restrict the tumor-site delivery of chemotherapy and induce an unresponsiveness to therapy (chemoresistance) associated with 90% of metastatic cancer deaths. The clinical intent of ChemoPrepTM is to safely increase the tumor-site saturation of chemotherapeutic agents with reduced doses. Achievement of this objective will likely improve treatment outcomes yet reduce treatment toxicity and long-term health consequences associated with chemotherapy administration. Beyond the potential to increase survival and enhance patient quality of life, reduced dosing of chemotherapeutic agents may alleviate ongoing supply chain issues associated with nationwide shortages of chemotherapy.
Post infusion of chemotherapy, Sigyn Therapeutics designed ChemoPureTM to extract off-target drug agents from the bloodstream as a means to further reduce patient toxicity.
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is an international treaty with more than 150 Contracting States. A PCT submission makes it possible to seek patent protection for an invention simultaneously in a large number of countries by filing a single “international” patent application instead of filing multiple national or regional patent applications. However, the granting of patents remains under the control of the national or regional patent offices. Sigyn Therapeutics previously disclosed that a related provisional patent application was filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”).
