Avion Pharmaceuticals, LLC Key Developments

Avion Pharmaceuticals, LLC Renews Ongoing Partnership with Gnosis, S.P.A., to License Quatrefolic, Body-Ready Folate, through Patent Life of 2028

Avion Pharmaceuticals, LLC recently announced it has solidified its continuing partnership with Gnosis S.P.A. to provide Quatrefolic®, the fourth-generation folate, as part of the Prenate® prescription prenatal vitamin portfolio. As a result of the recent agreement, Avion will provide Quatrefolic® through the duration of its patent life, which runs through 2028. Quatrefolic® ((6S)-5 methyltetrahydrofolate glucosamine salt) is a patented and unique body-ready form of folate that is an important component of prenatal nutritional support for both expecting mothers or women trying to conceive. Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects (NTD) such as spina bifida. Up to 50% of American women have MTHFR polymorphism, which does not allow the body to metabolize folic acid that is available through diet or nutritional supplements. 1,2 Quatrefolic® folate, available in all Prenate® prescription prenatals, is delivered in the form that is already in the biologically active form for the body to use and overcomes the MTHFR polymorphism common in women allowing all women, regardless of their genetic predisposition, to absorb folate and enjoy the protective benefits as they prepare for motherhood.
