    Bionomics Limited (BNO) today announced it had filed a patent application relating to a method of diagnosing a form of childhood epilepsy. The Adelaide-based biotechnology company highlighted the gene’s ability to prevent seizures in children later in life.

    Bionomics advised the diagnostic method incorporates its proprietary gene variations, which are also covered by a series of international patent applications.

    “The new patent application arises from a clinical study, conducted in various sites in Australia and Europe, involving patients with a form of epilepsy confined to early childhood,” the company said in a statement to the ASX.

    A professor at the University of Melbourne said the clinical study established a clear link between variations in a specified gene and a benign form of childhood epilepsy.

    “The patients involved in the study typically experience seizures in the first few months of their life, but have a good prognosis for being free from epilepsy symptoms later in life,” said professor Samuel Berkovic.

    CEO of Bionomics, Dr Deborah Rathjen, said the group was now building a pipeline of proprietary diagnostic methods which it is aiming on bringing to the market.

    Currently Bionomics is working with Nanogen Inc, a San Diego-based diagnostic products company, on the development of diagnostic products for epilepsy. The group also said it was continuing to collaborate in epilepsy research and development with Australia’s leading research institutions.
