NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — With its exclusive global license to the TABMELT technology for pharmaceutical use, Vivera is pleased to announce the expansion of the Company’s international presence with the recent grant of the TABMELT patent in Israel. The newly granted TABMELT patent from the Israel Patent Office (ILPO) will enable the Company to expand the sublingual drug delivery system’s global opportunities and reach.
“TABMELT has already received international patent grants in Canada, Russia, Australia, and the United Kingdom,” said Paul Edalat, Chairman, Founder, and CEO of Vivera. “This long-awaited Israel patent is going to allow us to give more patients access to this innovative drug delivery system. From advancements in research and development and state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities, Israel is a major player in the pharmaceutical industry, and the partnership opportunities are truly endless.”
TABMELT is a novel patented and patent-pending sublingual drug delivery system that allows patients to take a medication by dissolving a tablet under the tongue. The sublingual delivery route may lead to more instantaneous and accurate absorption than oral drug delivery for specific drugs because it largely bypasses the GI tract and first-pass metabolism in the liver, both significant sites of oral drug metabolism.
Many patients struggle to take their medications due to unfavorable side effects or difficulty swallowing. The TABMELT drug delivery system is designed to reduce these barriers and may make it easier for patients to adhere to their medication regimens.
