ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 15, 2019 — Cerecor Inc. (NASDAQ: CERC), a biopharmaceutical company focused on becoming a leader in development and commercialization of treatments in rare and orphan diseases in pediatrics and neurology, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 10,202,363 (“the ‘363 patent”) on Feb. 12, 2019, which is directed to CERC‑301, an oral, NR2B-specific, NMDA receptor antagonist.

CERC-301 is a selective NR2B-specific NMDA receptor antagonist with a unique mechanism of action tested in >375 subjects to date. CERC-301 is being developed for the treatment of Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (nOH) associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Systems Atrophy and Pure Autonomic Failure. CERC-301 has a rapid onset of action, which we believe will result in long-term effectiveness and fewer side effects than the leading nOH treatments currently available.

The ‘363 patent covers the crystalline form of CERC‑301, as well as a pharmaceutical composition containing the crystalline form of CERC‑301. It also covers methods of treating conditions responsive to NR2B antagonists.

The ’363 patent, and its foreign counterpart applications, are co-owned with Merck & Co. (NYSE: MRK). Cerecor has an exclusive, worldwide license from Merck to this patent family and two other patent families covering NR2B-specific, NMDA receptor antagonist for the development and commercialization of CERC‑301 (formerly MK‑0657) for all human indications. 

Dr. Perry Calias, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer and Head of R&D of Cerecor, stated, “This issued patent, in conjunction with the potential issuance of other multiple patent applications currently under review, provides Cerecor with intellectual property rights to 2035. The expansion of our intellectual property portfolio is an integral aspect of Cerecor’s clinical development and commercialization strategy.”
