RiboCor has expended considerable resources in patenting nearly all known beneficial applications for Ribose. As a naturally occurring compound, Ribose itself cannot be patented. However, based on scientific findings, its use to treat clinical indications is patentable. This method of patenting uses and compositions of naturally occurring compounds is well known in the pharmaceutical industry.


RiboCor owns an extensive patent portfolio, which allows it exclusive rights to sell Ribose for the uses in its patent claims. Many of these patents include their foreign counterparts. In addition, RiboCor has a large number of pending patent applications covering all facets of its business.
