Tucson, AZ, May 30, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Microvascular Therapeutics (MVT) has been awarded US Patent Number 10,279,053, entitled, “Microbubble Compositions, Methods of Making Same and Method of Using Same,” issued on May 7th, 2019. This patent describes a novel method of making ultra-stable microbubbles of perfluoropentane gas. Wyatt Unger, President and CEO of MVT said, “We are excited about issuance of this patent as we have discovered a new way of making ultra-stable microbubbles for ultrasound imaging, molecular imaging, and therapeutic applications of ultrasound. Previous applications of perfluoropentane for ultrasound imaging have used emulsions of this material, but we have discovered a way of making pre-formed perfluoropentane microbubbles that are highly stable for ultrasound imaging.” MVT is currently performing a clinical trial of a dose ranging study in human volunteers using a new microbubble ultrasound contrast agent, MVT-100. MVT-100 is being developed via the 505(b)(2) pathway resulting in accelerated approval for the new drug.
