    Publication Trend

    What has been the IP publication trend for Probiotics?

    Patents related to probiotics can be traced back to 1950 with around 400 patent records in 1970’s, although the number of filings remained relatively low all the way up till the year 2000 with 370 records. From the publication trend it appears the late 80’s and early 90’s had some activity in this field but real pursuit for building IP around probiotics happened only more recently in the last decade and has been quite consistent since. Noticeably there was considerable increase in publications for 2010 which saw around 1200 patents published during the year.
