European Patent Granted

Abstract:
Global nanotechnology company pSivida Limited, is pleased to announce that its UK operating subsidiary pSiMedica Limited has been granted a further European patent for BioSilicon™. European Patent Number 1220659 relates to the invention of orally administrable pharmaceutical products (eg tablets, capsules, pellets and powders) that comprise porous and/or polycrystalline silicon (BioSilicon™). Oral administration of drugs remains the most favoured route of treatment, being painless and enabling the patient to self-administer. BioSilicon™, allows drug molecules to be held in nanosized pockets that release tiny pulses of drug as the BioSilicon™ dissolves.
