uBiome Receives Patent for Microbiome-Derived Diagnostics and Therapeutics for Immune-Microbial Dysfunction
Date:12/14/2018

uBiome, the leader in microbial genomics, announced the issue of patent number 9,703,929 entitled “Method and System for Microbiome-Derived Diagnostics and Therapeutics” by the US Patent and Trademark Office on July 11, 2017 with a priority date of October 21, 2014. The patent is an invention by uBiome collaborators Dr. Zachary Apte, Dr. Daniel Almonacid, Dr. Jessica Richman, and Dr. Siavosh Rezvan Behbahani, and expands upon previously filed intellectual property.

The patented technology involves characterizing an immune-microbial dysfunction and generating a therapy model by analyzing biological samples from uBiome’s proprietary database. The microbiome compositions obtained with these products are useful in assisting a health care provider with the diagnosis of immune-microbial dysfunctions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease, among others.

This issuance creates the possibility of designing a therapy based on the modification of the microbiota using prebiotics and probiotics. It also opens up the possibility of predicting the likelihood of occurrence of immune-microbial dysfunction in individuals.

“uBiome’s goal is to advance the science of the microbiome, and this technology allows us to do just that,” Jessica Richman, PhD, co-founder and CEO of uBiome, said. “Diagnostics and therapeutics are an exciting frontier for microbiome-derived analysis and we are pleased to have been granted this patent.”
