Vascepa exclusivity updateAmarin continues to make significant progress in its effort to expand patent protection for Vascepa and now has 27 patents issued or allowed in the United States with over 30 additional U.S. patent applications being prosecuted. This patent portfolio includes claims covering Vascepa's pharmaceutical composition and methods of use for the MARINE indication, ANCHOR indication and other potential uses of Vascepa. Amarin is also pursuing patent applications related to Vascepa in multiple jurisdictions outside the United States. In May 2013, the European Patent Office granted a patent covering the use of Vascepa based on the results from the MARINE trial. All but two of the granted patents in the United States have expiry dates extending into 2030 and the majority of U.S. patent applications, if and when allowed, are anticipated to have expiry dates in or beyond 2030. Patent protection for Vascepa is augmented by protection provided by trade secrets, existing manufacturing barriers to entry and anticipated three- or five-year regulatory exclusivity.
