Boston Scientific Announces Court Decision

NATICK, Mass., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) today announced a decision by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The case involves a Boston Scientific patent, which in part is directed to drug-eluting stents and coating systems. In the decision, the Court found that the patent was invalid as obvious over the prior art. The case was an appeal by Johnson and Johnson of a 2005 jury verdict in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware that found the patent was valid and infringed by Johnson and Johnson's Cypher(R) Sirolimus-Eluting Stent System.

Boston Scientific said it is considering its options for challenging the decision.

Boston Scientific is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices whose products are used in a broad range of interventional medical specialties. For more information, please visit:
