The ADHS’ Arizona Biomedical Research Commission has submitted over 66 patent requests worldwide, and has been granted 9 patents within the US in collaboration with ASU and the U of A. The Commission has 22 patent requests published or pending in 7 different countries. Many of the granted patents are anti-cancer compounds. The ABRC continues to collaborate with Arizona researchers to provide insight into diseases and work towards finding treatments and cures for these diseases.
Last week the FDA approved Anascorp® which is an anti-venom partially funded by our Arizona Biomedical Research Commission. This anti-venom has been shown to help children recover from life-threatening, severe reactions due to scorpion stings. This antidote is produced in Mexico and clinical trials were conducted through the U of A. This will likely be the next application for patent for an ABRC funded project.
