BAGNEUX, France, June 16, 2022-(BUSINESS WIRE)-Regulatory News:
Genomic Vision (FR0011799907-GV Qualified, PEA-PME) (Paris: GV)a biotechnology company that develops tools and services dedicated to the analysis and control of genome changes, today announced the successful publication of a patent on “Physical Characterization of Telomeres” (PCT).
The patent was granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in June 2022. With this patent, Genomic Vision expands the portfolio of its inventions by providing a new dimension to use of proprietary molecular combing technology in the field of age -related diseases and the onset of certain cancers.
What are telomeres?
Telomers are protective regions located at the end of each chromosome. Whenever a cell divides, the telomeres become shorter. The time comes when the telomeres become so short that the cells can no longer divide and die. Because of this phenomenon, the demonstration of telomere contraction or loss has opened up a wide field of applications in biological and age-related diseases that could lead to a medical breakthrough to treat. chronic diseases and contribute to improving life expectancy.
What are PCT patent applications?
Thanks to this invention, Genomic Vision technology can not only be used to detect the physical length of telomeres, but also to determine regions of the genome that are close or not to telomeres; this is to associate diseases or biomarkers where recognition of telomere contraction or loss is essential.
Using artificial intelligence (AI), PCT applications can automatically detect signals and build an internal database.
Based on PCT’s patent, Genomic Vision’s overall approach will provide integrated bio-analytical tools in the following areas:
Age -related diseases;
Improving living conditions;
The study of telomere length in genome size;
Identification of biomarkers for diseases associated with specific chromosomes;
Help with early prognosis of diseases.
In the third quarter of 2021, Genomic Vision has launched its TeloSizer® service, an innovative tool to physically measure the size and distribution of telomeres to establish a correlation between telomere length and disease onset as well the severity of it. . This new patent provides valuable additional knowledge to determine how telomere length can serve, among other things, as a biomarker in medicine.
Dominique Remy-Renou, CEO of Genomic Vision said: “We are proud to have obtained this patent, which allows us to further protect our technology in various fields of application. Intellectual property policy is an integral part of our development strategy. and I want to thank our IP team for this success ”
