Martek to Obtain Permanent Injunction Against Lonza in U.S. Patent Infringement Suit; Jury Verdict on Infringement of Two of Three Patents Upheld by Judge
Date:11/1/2007

COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Martek Biosciences Corporation (Nasdaq: MATK) today announced that a judge in the United States District Court in Wilmington, Delaware, has ruled on various post-trial motions and will enter a permanent injunction in Martek's favor against the defendants in the patent infringement suit brought by Martek against Lonza, Ltd., Nutrinova Inc. and Nutrinova Nutrition Specialties & Food Ingredients GmbH. The suit involves Lonza's U.S. sale and use of a fatty acid product currently marketed under the brand name Lonza DHA for use in functional foods and dietary supplements and does not involve Martek's core infant formula patents.

The judge upheld the October 2006 jury verdict that the defendants infringed all of the asserted claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,340,594 and 6,410,281 (the "'281 Patent") and that these patents were valid. The judge indicated that he will grant a permanent injunction against Lonza with respect to those two patents. The judge also upheld the jury verdict that Lonza had acted willfully in its infringement of the '281 Patent. Regarding the third patent involved in the case, U.S. Patent No. 6,451,567 (the "'567 Patent"), the judge reversed the jury verdict and found that there was insufficient evidence to show that the claims of this patent are enforceable against the defendants. Martek does not believe that this decision will have an adverse effect on the strength of the permanent injunction to be issued by the Court.

Martek expects that Lonza will appeal the adverse decision against it to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The permanent injunction will be in effect pending any appeal. Martek is considering the alternatives availa
