Fuisz Pharma LLC Receives a Patent for a Non-Invasive Urological Device to Treat Benign Prostate Hyperplasia Symptoms (BPH)

FUISZ LLC | April 19, 2022

The first patent for Fuisz Pharma LLC's non-invasive urological device platform to alleviate symptoms of BPH, US 11,213,41, entitled "Device and Method for Reducing Urinary Retention," was issued via Fuisz LLC. Fuisz Pharma LLC is still looking for additional patent protection to go along with the one that was obtained. The Fuisz device is non-invasive, simple to use, and has been shown to help initiate urination, minimize dribbling and nocturia, and decrease urine retention, all of which are frequent symptoms of BPH. The gadget can be used for easy and fast double voids. The Fuisz device works on the principle of using a cool, rapidly transferred thermal transfer to induce the start of urination. Urination stream pressure requirements are dropped simultaneously. The Fuisz gadget isn't intended to replace existing pharmaceutical or surgical treatments. It is meant to be used as an auxiliary non-invasive therapy to address symptoms. “Millions of American men suffer from urinary symptoms associated with BPH. These symptoms raise serious quality of life issues for patients. No male wishes to pause at a bathroom stall to initiate urination; be fearful of urgency during a trip to the store; or be deprived of a restful night by nocturia.” Joseph Fuisz, the Managing Member of Fuisz Pharma “The non-invasive Fuisz device offers substantial benefits for patients with BPH-type symptoms.” “We are preparing to seek approval for the Fuisz device as a medical device.”

MATRIC to Establish First and Only National Center of Excellence for Pharmaceutical Process Design

The Mid-Atlantic Technology, | March 03, 2022

The Mid-Atlantic Technology, Research & Innovation Center announced it will establish the Center of Excellence for process design, defining a new standardized process development framework to streamline chemical manufacturing processes from laboratory bench through to commercial production. The initial projects will develop continuous processes for critical materials for the pharmaceutical industry currently substantially produced overseas. These new capabilities will be established as a result of the Department of Commerce’s recent Rapid Assistance (for) Coronavirus Economic Response grant to the RAPID Manufacturing Institute, of which MATRIC is a sub-awardee. MATRIC—applying its unique infrastructure and subject matter expertise—will lead the specialty chemical manufacturing industry with this Center of Excellence focused on accelerated process design through modular processing. Onshoring the capability to move critical pharmaceutical material manufacturing processes from concept to commercial products will enable faster response times and fewer supply chain disruptions for the Nation. “Today, the U.S. doesn’t have the manufacturing capability to produce some key raw materials and intermediates at scale to support our pharmaceutical industry and needs. The COVID pandemic and the current global supply chain issues have taught us the importance of supply chain stability and security, and this starts with critical raw materials produced domestically, distributed with purpose, and efficiently accessed.” MATRIC Chairman & CEO Steven B. Hedrick “At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, we struggled to get our families and front-line healthcare workers access to necessary PPE, disinfectants and other critical equipment. I applaud MATRIC for making this exciting investment and establishing the Center for Excellence right here in West Virginia. Their broad-based chemical technology expertise will also help improve domestic Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) manufacturing, at a time when onshoring our pharmaceutical supply chain is critical,” said U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV). “West Virginia’s strategic location and MATRIC’s unique skillset will play a critical role in ensuring healthcare professionals across the country can quickly and efficiently get the equipment they need to safely do their jobs.” Collaboration MATRIC is a sub-awardee of the RACER grant from the Department of Commerce to the RAPID® Manufacturing Institute (RAPID). MATRIC will collaborate with RAPID, the project leader, and with partners at Teich Process Development and Procegence. “Through its partnership with RAPID, Teich and Procegence, MATRIC’s Center of Excellence avails our economy with choices. Choices like this afford the opportunity to source from Americans for Americans, or to selectively buy from overseas, at their discretion,” said RAPID Executive Director & Chief Technology Officer Ignasi Palou-Rivera. “Just on the horizon, the most important raw materials and intermediates for pharma will again be made available inside the United States and not be locked down by a relatively inelastic supply chain originating in nations with substantial government control.” RACER grants are awarded by the U.S. Department of Commerce to high-impact projects designed to fund awards for research, development, and testbeds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.
