Intellectual Property

Our innovative use of cell penetrating peptides derived from microbial and plant proteins is without precedent in cancer treatment. CDG has broadly filed U.S. and foreign patents covering use of cupredoxin family of proteins and their fragments. The patent portfolio also includes numerous international patent applications on CDG’s core technology and improvements.

Our patents include composition of matter including modifications thereof, utility claims as a single or multiple-agent therapy; therapeutic adjunct; and for diagnostic uses. The portfolio includes indications for cancer as well as allied and infectious diseases. We continue to file new utility and provisional patent applications as our research advances.
