PORTLAND, Ore., September 2, 2020 – Nobilis Therapeutics announced today the issuance of a Notice of Allowance (US Patent Application No: 15738025) for a patent titled “Therapeutic immune modulation using noble gas compositions.” One of it broadest claims includes “a method of treating an autism spectrum disorder comprising the steps of: a) identifying a patient with an autism spectrum disorder; and b) administering a noble gas containing composition comprising oxygen and/or air and a proportion by volume of 20 to 70% of a noble gas at a sufficient concentration and frequency in a patient in need thereof to effectively treat said autism spectrum disorder.”
“Together with our recently published data on the positive effects in an animal model of autism this patent adds tremendous value to the breadth of future label for our drug-device combination,” said Dr. Vlad Bogin, CEO of Nobilis Therapeutics. “While we don’t know the exact mechanism by which our drug may be exerting its beneficial effects, but suspect that its anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties coupled with a multimodal effect on the excitatory-inhibitory balance within the CNS are playing a role,” continued Dr. Bogin.
The company plans to submit grant applications to conduct additional preclinical studies in this field.
