Kristofer Cook, CEO for Carbiotix, comments

"The granting of this patent represents a key milestone in securing our competitive position in the European market and provides further confidence as we move quickly forward with the scale-up and commercialisation of our prebiotic ingredient, a corn bran extract containing AXOS. The global market for prebiotic ingredients is valued at close to 5 billion Euros (1), and is a market where we hold a competitive position with a prebiotic ingredient that is according to an internal study up to 10x better than first generation prebiotics however priced the same. This patent also provides protection for our medical food containing AXOS, which is simply a purer form of our AXOS ingredient and where the global market is valued at over 15 billion Euros (2). Even more important, this medical food containing AXOS also serves as backbone for our future therapeutic candidates."
