OLNEY, Md., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Datasci, LLC and etrials Worldwide, Inc. announced today that their pending patent litigation has been settled. The lawsuit, which is related to Datasci's U.S. Patent Number 6,496,827, concerned the collection and validation of clinical trial data. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, etrials has entered into a non-exclusive licensing arrangement with Datasci on a going-forward basis.
"We are thrilled to have granted a license to etrials," said Dr. Marc Kozam, co-inventor of the patent. "Use of this patent will help manufacturers move drugs to market one to three years faster than would otherwise be the case through the use of other methodologies. Furthermore, this innovation provides researchers with the tools they need to identify adverse events virtually in real time, a clear win-win for consumers and drug makers."
