SERNOVA IS AWARDED PATENTS IN MULTIPLE COUNTRIES FOR CELL POUCH(TM) AND THERAPEUTIC CELL TRANSPLANTATION TECHNOLOGIES
The patent offices in China, Israel, Singapore and New Zealand have issued notices of allowance and issued patents to Sernova Corp. for its patent application entitled "Methods and Devices for Cellular Transplantation."
These patents help protect Sernova's entire Cell Pouch system, including the Cell Pouch itself, as well as the Cell Pouch combined with therapeutic cells and surgical tools for cell transplantation. These issued patents, in addition to patent rights already granted or actively being pursued in other countries, will provide Sernova with patent protection through 2030.
"Patent applications on Sernova's technologies are being pursued in multiple countries around the world, and we are confident that additional patents will be granted on an international basis," stated Dr. Philip Toleikis, Sernova's president and chief executive officer.
"Potential strategic partners, including major pharmaceutical companies, place significant value in issued patents," stated Dr. Toleikis. He continued, "Since 2009, we have been relentless at carrying out our strategy to secure exclusive patent rights on our core technologies to develop an international footprint for our products."
