CryoCor Requests International Trade Commission Investigation Into CryoCath for Patent Infringement
Date:2/28/2008

Seeks Exclusion Order Barring Importation of CryoCath's Cryoablation System

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CryoCor, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRYO), a medical device company focused on the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, announced today that it has filed a formal complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that CryoCath Technologies Inc. has engaged in unfair trade practices by infringing on several CryoCor patents with its cryoablation system. CryoCor is requesting that the ITC initiate an investigation and issue an exclusion order to bar the importation into the United States of infringing CryoCath cryoablation products.

CryoCor's complaint covers three patents exclusively licensed to CryoCor in certain fields of use related to its Cardiac Cryoablation System, including patents covering pre-cooling technologies that CryoCor considers important to CryoCath's cryoablation system. This action is independent of a patent interference that has been declared by the United States Patent and Trademark Office between CryoCor and CryoCath, where CryoCor has been declared the senior party.

If the ITC accepts the complaint, it will institute a formal Section 337 investigation within 30 days. Section 337 investigations are completed on a fast track, typically within 15 months of the submission of the complaint. If the ITC determines that CryoCath's cryoablation system infringes on CryoCor's licensed patents and that CryoCath's products are being imported into the United States, the ITC may order that CryoCath's cryoablation system, and associated catheters and parts, be completely excluded from importation into the U.S. market for the life of the patents. ITC exclusion orders are enforced by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Ed Brennan, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of CryoCor, said, "Our request for this investigation further reinforces our strategy to protect our intellectual property r
