mPhase Technologies, Inc. (XDSL) (http://mphasetech.com/), announced that it has received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent Office for a patent application directed to a novel Drug Delivery System that is based on mPhase Technologies’ Smart Surface Technology. Frost and Sullivan, with the 2013 North American Advanced Battery Technology Innovation Award, recognized the advanced battery technology for Best Practices.
The drug delivery patent application is based on mPhase's Smart Surface technology enabling the automatic dispensing of a pre-set dosage of a drug agent or medication. mPhase believes the issuance of the patent could lead to licensing opportunities for a novel drug delivery system, possibly creating greater shareholder value.
The field of invention relates to a drug delivery system that generally includes a housing having one or more reservoirs; each having a medical agent hermetically sealed therein. A membrane extends across each of the one or more reservoirs which is adapted to allow the medical agents to pass there through in response to external stimuli, such as physical puncturing, melting the membranes through use of heating elements or electrowetting in response to a voltage pulse. A wicking material extends across the membranes through which the medical agents are dispensed to a patient. Because the housing can be made flat, the overall dispensing device can be reduced in size, allowing the drug delivery device to be located and attached to broader areas of the patient’s body for expanded medical applications and treatment.
Under past Cooperative Research and Development Agreements with the United States Army, mPhase developed a smart surface and demonstrated that it is possible to keep the essential components of a battery, the solid electrode and liquid electrolyte, separated until power is needed. This battery system, the Smart NanoBattery, can be activated electronically, mechanically or via gravitational pull is still under development.
