Newly granted continuation patent provides additional intellectual property protection for ChromaDex’s Niagen® (patented nicotinamide riboside) ingredient
ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) today announced that it was granted a continuation patent, adding to its global patent portfolio surrounding nicotinamide riboside (NR) and other nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) precursors. ChromaDex currently holds a robust patent portfolio of over 40 granted or licensed patents relating to Niagen® (patented NR) and other precursors to NAD, a molecule at the forefront of the healthy aging and cellular health categories. Niagen® is the sole active ingredient in ChromaDex’s flagship product, Tru Niagen®.
“We believe Niagen, or NR, is the most important supplement ingredient to have emerged in many years,” said Rob Fried, CEO of ChromaDex. “The science shows that it is important to anyone concerned about physiological aging. This patent further strengthens the ChromaDex position as the legal and safe way to obtain NR.”
U.S. Patent No. 11,242,364, which expires Nov. 10, 2037, significantly reinforces ChromaDex’s intellectual property position and adds additional protection of the manufacturing process of nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide riboside triacetate (NRT) salts including malate and tartrate salts. This patent allows ChromaDex to protect the process of creating NR and its various salt forms, which can be leveraged via future innovations. The patent continuation will also provide protection for new salt forms ChromaDex may develop in the future.
U.S. Patent No. 11,242,364 is titled “Efficient and Scalable Syntheses of Nicotinoyl Ribosides and Reduced Nicotinoyl Ribosides, Modified Derivatives Thereof, Phosphorylated Analogs Thereof, Adenylyl Dinucleotide Conjugates Thereof, and Novel Crystalline Forms Thereof.”
