Case Studies - Patented pain relief

Hanna Moore + Curley secured the grant of a European Patent for a fentanyl sublingual spray formulation for the fast delivery and relief of breakthrough chronic pain in cancer patients.  Donnacha Curley adduced evidence demostrating that a unique droplet size reduced breakthrough pain at a faster rate than prior medications without additional risk of inhalation into the lungs and convinced the EPO to grant our client's patent.
