"We have long recognized the unique value that our non-invasive, glucose monitoring technology can provide, and these patents reinforce this belief, further demonstrating the proprietary nature of our technology," stated Patrick Mooney, M.D., Echo's Chairman and CEO.  "We believe that our intellectual property portfolio will provide our products with long-term market protection and will add significantly to our shareholder value."

These patents join eleven U.S. patents and twenty-eight foreign patents already obtained by Echo Therapeutics.  Over 40 patent applications by Echo are pending in the U.S. and foreign countries.
