Date:7/17/2014

BOSTON, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: CBRX) ("Columbia" or "the Company"), a provider of pharmaceutical development, clinical trial manufacturing, and advanced analytical and consulting services to the pharmaceutical industry, today announced that it has expanded its intellectual property portfolio following the receipt of a patent covering bioadhesive progressive hydration tablets. The issued patent, U.S. Patent 8,765,177, pertains to a controlled, extended release delivery system for pharmaceutical compounds and can be used by the Company to develop proprietary products.

"The receipt of this patent is in keeping with our strategy of using the Company's patented delivery systems, combined with the formulation development capabilities of our wholly owned subsidiary, Molecular Profiles, to develop a portfolio of proprietary products. The patent could have a number of potential applications and increases our intellectual property portfolio pertaining to bioadhesive controlled release delivery of drugs," said Frank Condella, Columbia's president and chief executive officer.

In 2013, the Company was also granted a patent covering controlled-release pharmaceutical compositions using charged polymers, and the method of treating or preventing a disease using these new compositions. The patent, U.S. Patent 8,425,892, has a number of potential applications. It directly covers Columbia's extended release lidocaine vaginal gel (COL-1077), which had previously been developed through phase II for the treatment of pelvic pain and is currently under consideration for further development to prevent gynecological procedure related pain. There are currently no products approved for pain related to gynecological procedures.
