VANCOUVER, BC, September 28th, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BioVaxys Technology Corp. (CSE: BIOV) (FRA: 5LB) (OTCQB: BVAXF) (“BioVaxys” or “Company”) announced today that in an action that further expands the value of their IP portfolio, the Company has broadened the patent coverage for its viral vaccine platform by filing an international patent application through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (“PCT”) for BVX-1021, it’s vaccine for SARS1 and other sarbecoviruses.
BVX-1021 is the subject of an ongoing research collaboration between The Ohio State University and BioVaxys that is evaluating the Company’s novel approach for a “universal vaccine” that can treat a broad range of sarbecoviruses. These are a family of viruses that include SARS-CoV-2 and emerging variants, SARS-CoV-1, and a broad range of other potentially dangerous zoonotic viruses.
An International PCT Application, which is a patent treaty with more than 150 member countries, makes it possible to seek patent protection for an invention simultaneously in a large number of countries by filing a single “international” patent application instead of filing several separate national or regional patent applications.
This week BioVaxys also filed multiple National Phase patent applications for BVX-0320, its haptenized SARS-CoV-2 S1 subunit vaccine. The Company is pursuing expanded patent protection in the major pharmaceutical markets of US, the European Union (including the UK and Turkey), Canada, China, Japan, Brazil, Israel, Egypt, and South Korea.

All statements, other than statements of historical fact, included herein, without limitation, statements relating the future operating or financial performance of the Company, are forward looking statements. Forward-looking statements are frequently, but not always, identified by words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “potential”, “possible”, and similar expressions, or statements that events, conditions, or results “will”, “may”, “could”, or “should” occur or be achieved. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, and actual results and future events could differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.
These forward-looking statements reflect the beliefs, opinions and projections on the date the statements are made and are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates, primarily the assumption that BioVaxys will be successful in developing and testing vaccines and diagnostic tools, that, while considered reasonable by the Company, are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties and contingencies including, primarily but without limitation, the risk that BioVaxys’ vaccines and diagnostic tools will not prove to be effective and/ or will not receive the required regulatory approvals. With regards to BioVaxys’ business, there are a number of risks that could affect the development of its biotechnology products, including, without limitation, the need for additional capital to fund clinical trials, its lack of operating history, uncertainty about whether its products will complete the long, complex and expensive clinical trial and regulatory approval process for approval of new drugs necessary for marketing approval, uncertainty about whether its autologous cell vaccine immunotherapy can be developed to produce safe and effective products and, if so, whether its vaccine products will be commercially accepted and profitable, the expenses, delays and uncertainties and complications typically encountered by development stage biopharmaceutical businesses, financial and development obligations under license arrangements in order to protect its rights to its products and technologies, obtaining and protecting new intellectual property rights and avoiding infringement to third parties and their dependence on manufacturing by third parties.
The Company does not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking statements of beliefs, opinions, projections, or other factors, should they change, except as required by law.
