Court of Appeals Overturns 2005 Patent Verdict Against Cordis
Date:1/15/2009

WARREN, N.J., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. today found Boston Scientific Corporation's Ding patent invalid, and reversed a 2005 jury finding that Cordis Corporation's CYPHER(R) Sirolimus-eluting Coronary Stent infringed that patent.

Cordis is very pleased with this significant Court decision.

The original jury verdict was rendered in July 2005 in Wilmington, Delaware. The Ding patent had claimed a two-layer drug coating for a drug-eluting stent, which the Appeals Court found to be obvious in light of earlier issued patents.
