IntraOp Medical wins Patent Defense Suit Protecting Their Intellectual Property
Date:2/1/2012

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IntraOp Medical Corporation  (OTC: IOPD) is pleased to  announce that the German Supreme Court dismissed the patent nullification case that IntraOp Medical had appealed, and have upheld IntraOp's Mobetron patent for a mobile IOERT linear accelerator with "straight through" accelerator guide design without a bending magnet with a slight clarification.

IntraOp Medical's European Patent EP 0 700 578 describes for the Federal Republic of Germany an electron linear accelerator treatment device, which is suitable for Intra-Operative Electron Beam Radiation Therapy (IOERT).  This patent has been maintained with a slight revision to better clarify the device. The German text of the European Patent EP 0 700 578 may be obtained from the German Patent and Trademark Office Link.

"It is good to have this ruling validate the inventiveness of the Mobetron, which has provided the clinical community a totally new way to deliver IOERT.  The Mobetron mobile IOERT technology has already enabled important clinical studies in early stage breast cancer, and clinical trials for pancreatic cancer and rectal cancer are being developed. These studies would not have been practical or even possible to implement without the Mobetron mobile IOERT development," said Don Goer, Chief Scientist and founder of IntraOp.  John Powers, IntraOp CEO further said "we will continue to aggressively defend our patents.  This decision clearly helped reinforce the strength of our IP."
