Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On May 12th, GB Sciences received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for claims protecting their Myrcene Containing Complex Mixtures (MCCMs) for the Treatment of Neuropathic Pain. Intellectual property rights to this application and the MCCM contained within it are owned by the Company’s Canadian entity, GBS Global Biopharma, Inc. (GBS). The Company's MCCMs are protected for use in the treatment of pain related to arthritis, shingles, irritable bowel syndrome, sickle cell disease, and endometriosis. This Notice of Allowance is a significant milestone in the process of patenting intellectual property in that it is the final step before the Company's patent is issued. This Notice of Allowance signifies that the claims from the patent application have been reviewed successfully and that these claims are considered meritorious. The Company has now paid the patent issue fee and anticipates that the patent claims protecting its pain therapeutics will be issued within 3 to 12 weeks. In addition, GBS has filed a continuation to protect and advance the other therapeutic mixtures in the original patent application entitled “Myrcene-Containing Complex Mixtures Targeting TRPV1” that was filed on May 22, 2018. Claims for these additional MCCM will be reviewed by the USPTO in the future.
