Dr. Lanny Johnson

Licensor of PCA Patents to Dr J’s Natural

As an internationally recognized orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Lanny Johnson has paved the way for arthroscopic surgery across the globe. His stated goal was to have a positive impact upon the practice of orthopedic surgery after his graduation from residency at Barnes Hospital in 1964. With 77 patents granted to Dr. Johnson, primarily relating to medicine, Dr. Johnson became a pioneer in the development of arthroscopic surgical procedures at the knee, shoulder, elbow, hips and has touched the lives of many orthopedic surgeons as well as athletes, in a positive way. Following his retirement from clinical practice, Dr. Johnson dedicated many years to research and development. He first recognized that a food metabolite, protocatechuate (PCA), had many health benefits. Subsequently his research led to multiple patents with claims concerning PCA’s antimicrobial properties. These included effects as a broad spectrum antibiotic and biofilm destroyer. Recently US patents have been granted concerning PCA as an effective inhibitor of SARS CoV2 (COVID-19), illustrated in US Patent 10,959,969.

Dr. Johnson has granted selected patent licenses to Dr. J’s Natural from his research and development discoveries at PCA BioScience, LLC.
