Our attendance to the event has been a great opportunity for 1) gaining more knowledge and insights of the market in Middle East, 2) consolidate the strategic relations we already have in the territory and 3) finding new synergies. Middle East is a huge market that is demanding and consuming innovative products at a very fast pace (for instance, the use of probiotics for animal feed has grown 600% in the past 5 years). Products with a strong scientific background and a solid development are highly desired and in that sense, Bionaturis has a lot to value to deliver.

In terms of number of European companies in the event, the attendance has been pretty significant. Despite the fact that there is a homologous event in Europe, all the big players were in the event, thus highlighting the importance of this region and the opportunity of entering in that market.

Bionaturis Leishmaniasis Vaccine Granted in USA


This new concession in USA joins the one already obtained by Bionaturis in China last September for the same patent family.


Each year 80 million dogs are in danger of developing the disease in the affected areas of Europe and America. Visceral leishmaniasis affects more than 700,000 people worldwide each year, with the dog being the main reservoir of the disease.


The granted patent protects the use of the intended vaccine in dogs and humans.


Bionaturis goes one step further in the pet market, which according to Euromonitor International represented 93,000 million euros in 2015.


The Centro de Desarrollo Tecnologico e Industrial (CDTI) has also granted Bionaturis a non-refundable incentive worth 196,300 euros to support the achievement of a new intermediate milestone in the development of the vaccine.


Jerez de la Frontera, February XX, 2018.- The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the patent for the prevention and treatment of visceral leishmaniasis in both dogs and humans to the vaccine against this disease, which Bionaturis holds the worldwide exclusivity.
