Pagosa Springs, CO – July 14, 2006 – NZyme Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (d/b/a NZyme Pharm) announced today that they have a patent pending application for NZyme brand (Subtilisin NAT) for decreasing whole blood viscosity in the central therapeutic role of preventing and treating vascular disease such as heart attacks and ischemic strokes, essential hypertension and deep vein thrombosis.
Subtilisin NAT is a pro-fibrinolytic enzyme that is present in a vegetable cheese-like food called Natto, which is extremely popular in Japan and has been consumed for over 1,000 years. Natto is prepared by fermenting boiled soybeans with Bacillus spp. (e.g., Bacillus subtilis in particular Bacillus subtilis var. natto). Traditionally, Natto was consumed as a folk remedy to treat various conditions and ailments. Subtilisin NAT may be extracted and purified from Natto.
“The new patent will be a timely arrival for the medical community as recent clinical research shows an increasing risk-to-benefit ratio with cardiovascular patients taking aspirin.” said Ralph E. Holsworth, Jr., D.O., co-founder of NZyme Pharm and director of clinical and scientific research. “With over three hundred independent cardiac risk factors, whole blood viscosity has been clinically proven to be the common denominator of vascular disease.”

All prescribed medical foods contain 100 mg of Subtilisin NAT which is the fibrinolytic equivalent greater than 2,000 fibrinolytic units (FUs).
