    LPTN reported that it has received official notification from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that the company has been issued another key patent supporting its iSONEP(NYSE:TM) program.

    The newly issued U.S. patent, No. 8,614,103, is entitled, "Compositions and Methods for Treating Ocular Conditions." It claims methods of using monoclonal antibodies (including iSONEP) that bind sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) in the treatment of a wide variety of ocular conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration (NYSE:AMD).

    LPTN is conducting a Phase 2 clinical trial for iSONEP, the Nexus trial, which is evaluating the anti-S1P antibody's safety and efficacy in wet-AMD patients that have not responded well to existing anti-VEGF therapies including Lucentis(NYSE:R), Avastin(R) and Eylea(R).

    LPTN entered into an agreement with Pfizer in 2010 that provides Pfizer an exclusive option for a worldwide license to develop and commercialize iSONEP.
