German High Court Rules in Favor of AmniSure® as New European Guidelines Published
Date:3/4/2011

KARLSRUHE, Germany, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The High Court of Germany (Bundesgerichtshof) handed down a final ruling in favor of AmniSure® International, LLC in its dispute with the Finnish company Medix Biochemica. The court upheld the German Patent Court's ruling that the patent associated with Medix's ActimPROM test is null and void due to its lack of an inventive step. Medix is expected to pay AmniSure® an undisclosed amount to be determined by the courts.

"We are extremely pleased with the decision of the German High Court," said Dr. Michael Friedman, President and CEO of AmniSure® International. "The Court's decision coincided with the publication of the new peer-reviewed Guidelines of the European Association of Perinatal Medicine, which hailed the AmniSure® test as the 'most useful tool' and the 'most accurate bedside test' for diagnosing ruptured fetal membranes(1). The Court's decision closes a chapter for us by bringing a seven-year-long litigation, initiated by Medix, to its rightful conclusion. The publication of the European Guidelines, meanwhile, opens a new chapter for us by establishing the AmniSure® test as the new benchmark for diagnosing ruptured fetal membranes."
