TERPENE WITH CARDIOVASCULAR APLICATION
The use of medicinal plants as alternative therapy is as old as human existence itself. Thus, the search for molecules with effectiveness for cardiovascular applications is an alternative to pharmacological research. In this range of molecules are inserted terpenes, constituents of essential oils which are contained in all plant organs and that exhibit various pharmacological applications including cardiovascular properties. Thus, the aim of this study was to perform a screening in patent applications on cardiovascular application of terpenes yet. For this, the prospect was held at the European Patent Office, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the National Institute of Industrial Property of Brazil. The largest number of patent applications has been found in U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The largest depositors were the United States and China. The largest intellectual property applicants were companies and individuals. Brazil has not filed a patent registration. The international classification that occurred over this prospect was A61K.
