Peptonic Medical’s ongoing applications for the intimate wash and for the treatment of fungal infection has received positive statements from the international review

Peptonic Medical has previously announced that it applied for patents for the intimate wash and for the treatment of fungal infections, which have been accompanied by so-called PCT applications (Patent Cooperation Treaty). Both applications have now been reviewed by the international review authority, the outcome is that they recommend that patents be granted, as the patent applications meet the requirements for novelty, inventive step and industrial applicability. Now it remains to submit applications at the national level and get the applications granted there.

  • The first applied for patent protection ”intimate wash” to use our proprietary intimate wash which is cleansing, protective and moisture-preserving, refers to the Company’s personal care product VagiVital ® Moisturizing V Cleanser. The background to this patent application is that we discovered the very positive properties of our proprietary Intimate Wash. Many of the competing products on the market today are both drying and have the wrong pH. Our product, which has been on the market since mid-2021, has received many positive reviews from users. The application was submitted in May 2020.
  • The second applied for patent protection ”fungal infection” to use a further developed variant of our vaginal gel for the treatment and prevention of fungal infections. A clinical study is underway to demonstrate this effect at Karolinska Hospital in Huddinge.

– We are very happy about this news, that we have come one step closer to approval of the patent protection for our intimate wash and for the treatment/prevention of fungal infections. The PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) is an international patent system that enables companies to apply for patent protection internationally for their innovations in approximately 150 countries. Within the framework of the PCT, a preliminary assessment of patentability is made before the application proceeds to the national phase where national patent applications are submitted. Concretely, this means that you have a fairly good idea of ​​the possibilities of obtaining patent protection for an innovation even before you submit the national patent applications, says Erik Sundquist, CEO, Peptonic Medical AB.

The next step for Peptonic Medical will be to decide in which countries the patents will be applied for, which will happen in the near future.
