SOUTH BEND, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 09/30/10 -- Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCBB: KBLB) is very pleased to announce that a provisional patent application has been filed by the University of Notre Dame on the artificial spider silk technology revealed at the Company's joint press conference yesterday with the University of Notre Dame. The patent filing covers all of the breakthrough technology revealed at the press conference, including artificial spider silk and the methods used to create transgenic silkworms capable of spinning artificial spider silk and recombinant fiber.
Pursuant to the provisions of Kraig Biocraft Laboratories collaborative research and intellectual property agreement with the University, the Company has an option for a global exclusive license to use the technology commercially. The Company is happy to inform its shareholders that it has now exercised that option.
