Neurovation Labs, Inc., a biotechnology company targeting physiological biomarkers of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for comprehensive diagnosis and treatment, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 11,439,715, on September 13, 2022. The patent, entitled “Compositions and Methods to Detect GluA1 in Brain and to Identify the Presence of GluA1-Mediated Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Other Neurological Disorders,” is directed to novel radiotracer compositions as well as methods for detecting GluA1 and GluA1-containing central nervous system receptors.
“The compounds protected by this patent are part of a series of radiotracers that Neurovation Labs is developing to enable objective diagnosis of brain disorders and to better evaluate the mechanisms underlying PTSD and other brain traumas. These compounds and the corresponding methods covered by the patent represent a novel, targeted approach to mental healthcare where we may definitively detect central nervous system disorders,” said Dr. Jennifer Perusini, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of the company. “We aim to visualize, measure, and subsequently alleviate wounds in patients that were previously considered invisible.”
This patent is owned solely by Neurovation Labs and is the second issuance from a broader intellectual property portfolio stemming from the company’s research and development. The company is currently exploring applications and extensions of its technology to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and micro-TBI, with support from a U.S. Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract.
