ROCKVILLE, Md. - Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system diseases, announced in a press release the issuance of a fourth patent (number 8,877,248) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) covering Trokendi XR, its novel once-daily extended-release topiramate product. The patent was issued by the USPTO on November 4, 2014. It provides protection for the product with expiration that is no earlier than 2027.

"We are committed to protecting our products with strong intellectual property and to driving sustainable and durable growth for our products. The issuance of this patent expands our proprietary position with respect to our extended release formulation of topiramate. We now have patent protection on Oxtellar XR® and Trokendi XR® through four issued US patents each, and are focused on further expanding such protection," said Jack A. Khattar, President and CEO of Supernus.

Supernus has several additional patent applications for extended-release topiramate and extended-release oxcarbazepine pending in other geographic regions.
