Advanomics intends to expand this new Adva-27a protection worldwide by filing appropriate international patent applications within the prescribed time limits from this initial filing. Advanomics has recently completed acquisition of the original Adva-27a worldwide patents filed in April 2007 from Institut National des Sciences Appliquees, a government research lab in France.
