Histogen Wins Appellate Court Hearing in SkinMedica Patent Case
Date:8/26/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Histogen, Inc., a regenerative medicine company developing solutions based on the products of cells grown under simulated embryonic conditions, today announced that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has affirmed a lower court decision that the Company does not infringe patents in the lawsuit that SkinMedica, Inc. filed against Histogen in 2009.

SkinMedica had previously sued the Company for infringement of United States Patent Nos. 6,372,494 (titled “Methods of making conditioned cell culture medium compositions”) and 7,118,746 (titled “Conditioned cell culture medium compositions and methods of use”). In 2011, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California granted the Company’s Motion for Summary Judgment, confirming a finding of noninfringement. SkinMedica appealed the Summary Judgment Order, and on August 23, 2013 was rebuffed again by the Federal Circuit.

“We are excited to have confirmation from the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals that Histogen’s technology is unique, and outside of SkinMedica’s patent rights,” said Dr. Gail K. Naughton, Histogen CEO and Chairman of the Board. “We look forward to continuing the rapid revenue growth we’re seeing in our skincare business through our current partners, bringing on new partners in the near future, and expanding the skin care line to other aesthetic applications.”

Histogen’s proprietary human multipotent cell conditioned media is the key ingredient in the ReGenica line of skincare products within the United States, and will be incorporated into additional cosmetic products in various countries through promising partnerships.

The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the grant of Motion for Summary Judgment in case 2012-1560 following a hearing on May 9, 2013. A copy of the appellate court opinion is available upon request.
