The success of mRNA vaccines as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the disruptive aspect of mRNA-based therapeutic technology. COVID-19 is one of many indications for the mRNA technology platform, which holds high promise for new vaccines with a wide spectrum of microbial pathogens and cancers. Moreover, therapeutic mRNA is not limited to vaccination, but has also been developed to treat both rare and common diseases (genetic diseases, fibrotic diseases, autoimmune disorders, etc.). However, a series of challenges remain to be addressed before mRNA can be established as a general therapeutic modality. An array of new technologies is being developed to surmount these challenges, including approaches to optimize mRNA cargos, carriers with inherent tissue tropism, and mRNA storing, for example. The orientation of future development might also depend on the therapeutic application, as the development pathway for mRNA vaccines and therapeutics differs in several important respects, such as mRNA immunogenicity, tissue tropism, delivery, or pharmacokinetics.
In this fast-evolving context, it is crucial to understand the intellectual property position and strategy of the different players. Such knowledge can help detect business risks and opportunities, identify emerging research areas, and understand competitors' strategies.
The mRNA Therapeutics Patent Monitoring Service allows you to take advantage of a quarterly-updated Excel file and benefit from both quarterly analysis reports and direct interaction with our analysts. The Excel file includes new patent applications, new granted patents, patents expired/abandoned, patent transfers (re-assignment, licensing), and patent litigation/opposition. The patents are categorized by technology segments, including mRNA design (self-amplifying and circular RNA), carriers, manufacturing, and storing process, but also by application and therapeutic area. This useful Excel spreadsheet with hyperlinks to updated online database allows for multi-criteria searches, including priority date, patent assignees, legal status of patents, and specific segments. The quarterly PDF reports provide the IP trends over the last three months, with a close look at key IP players and patented technologies. Direct access to our analysts offers you on-demand Q&A sessions and open discussions regarding the quarterly report results, trends, analyses, specific patented technologies, or companies' patent portfolios in the field of Therapeutic mRNA.
With the help of the patent monitoring service, you will be aware of your competitors' current patenting activities, their IP dynamics, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, patent litigation, technology development, and R&D strategies. You will also be able to detect newcomers early in your business area.
By taking note of any recent patent filings, you can track the latest innovations in the field. You will get details on claimed inventions and you can follow technology developments. New technical solutions could inspire and improve your R&D activity.
You will obtain information on patent applications filed even before exclusive rights have been granted, and you can react in time to prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.
Monitoring newly-issued patents allows you to regularly assess your freedom-to-operate, ensuring that your products or processes are not covered by patents and thus can be manufactured, sold, or used safely without infringing valid IP rights owned by others.
By tracking both expired patents and abandoned patents, you will be able to identify inventions entering the public domain that you can use safely for your development.
On a quarterly basis, the report will provide the IP trends over the last three months, with a close look at key IP players, newcomers, and key patented technologies. Main patent applicants and their inventions, blocking patents, promising patents, and key newly expired or abandoned patents will be highlighted.
Take advantage of direct interaction with our analysts by phone and/or email and get specific input for specific patented technologies and companies' IP portfolios through on-demand Q&A sessions and discussion (100 hours per year).
