Cosmos Health Enters into Agreement to Acquire Rights for WIPO-Filed Patent on Drug Targeting CNS Cancers


CHICAGO, IL / ACCESSWIRE / December 7, 2023 / Cosmos Health Inc. ("Cosmos Health" or the "Company'') (NASDAQ:COSM), a diversified, vertically integrated global healthcare group engaged in innovative R&D, owner of proprietary pharmaceutical and nutraceutical brands, manufacturer and distributor of healthcare products, and operator of a telehealth platform, announced today an agreement with Cloudpharm PC to acquire the rights arising from the patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), under reference code PCT/EP2023/071865.

The patent filing describes the repurposing of an existing drug to act on the Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1), a key target in various diseases. This innovation proposes the use of the repurposed drug in addressing certain central nervous system (CNS) cancers, hematological cancers, allergic inflammation, and autoimmune diseases. Existing preclinical data are promising for the further development of these findings.

The increasing incidence of such cancers and the growing geriatric population are key factors expected to drive the growth of the brain tumor diagnosis market globally. During the historical period from 2018 to 2022, the market experienced a CAGR of 4.7%.
