British company Inmolecule Ltd awarded Nbelyax a patent for a new nano-bio-particle.
In July 2016, the British company Inmolecule International was awarded a patent for the Nbelyax molecule.

Present at the event were: Duncan Taylor, UK Ambassador to Mexico; Geoffrey Fichte, Executive Director of Corporate Banking of HSBC Mexico, Miguel Angel Margain Gonzalez, General Director of the Intellectual Property National Institute (IMPI) and Rafael Navarro, Director of the Institute for Social Security and Services for Workers of the State (ISSSTE).
