Guilford has aggressively and systematically obtained patents for its most significant discoveries and established in-house Intellectual Property (IP) expertise that is normally found only in much larger pharmaceutical companies. To date, Guilford’s patent portfolio now encompasses more than 140 issued U.S. patents and over 700 U.S. and foreign patent applications. This is testimony to the importance Guilford places on securing the broadest possible IP protection for our discoveries.
