ELMSFORD, N.Y., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoVibronix, Inc., (NASDAQ: NAOV), a medical device company that produces the UroShield®, PainShield® and WoundShield® Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Portable Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices, announces its recent filing of a United States patent application entitled "A Transdermal Patch of a Portable Ultrasound-Generating System for Improved Delivery of Therapeutic Agents and Associated Methods of Treatment."
According to the application, the transdermal patches are strategically infused with one or more cannabidiol (CBD) or other pharmaceutical composition(s) and incorporate the company's proprietary low-profile transducer to concomitantly deliver ultrasound energy generated by the PainShield® device. The application also covers methods of topically delivering cannabinoids, specifically CBD, for treatment or alleviation of chronic and acute pain.
Brian Murphy, CEO of NanoVibronix, stated, "The application expands on the therapeutic benefits of our existing SAW-based PainShield® technology to provide for predefined and controlled drug delivery from these patches and enhanced transdermal absorption. Depending on the specific drug composition formulated into these patches, we believe a combination of a topical drug and our Surface Acoustic Wave could offer additional and specifically tailored benefits for patients, particularly in terms of pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. Our current focus is on the therapeutic and analgesic properties afforded by cannabinoids, and specifically CBD, as an alternative to opioids for treatment of pain."
Mr. Murphy added, "Our patent counsel, Finch Paolino, LLC, has been instrumental in aligning NanoVibronix with our entire patent process, not only in terms of ongoing innovation and in transactional matters, but also in terms of longevity and strategic life cycle management. Our expectation is for our portfolio to grow while we exploit the benefits of our platform technology."
