BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc: The information published in the Company Announcement by BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc. on 9 November 2020 at 8:45 has proved to be incorrect


On 9 November 2020 at 8:45 am BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc (”BBS”, ”the Company”) published an announcement concerning the acceptance of all claims of Company’s patent application ”A METHOD FOR PREPARING A BONE PROTEIN PREPARATION AND A BONE PROTEIN PREPARATION” in the USA.  This information has proved to be  incorrect due to misunderstanding in the correspondence with the patent office.  

The application related to ARTEBONE® product has been divided in two parts in the USA. One part concerns the claims of the product. This patent has been active since spring 2020 (announced 7 April 2020). The other part concerns the manufacturing process of ARTEBONE®. This application has already been published in the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (”USPTO”) but the patent has not yet been formally granted. Examiner of USPTO has informed BBS that also this patent will be granted after the formal application process. 

We apologise this misunderstanding and will publish an announcement concerning the acceptance of all claims immediately after receiving the information.
