WARREN, N.J., April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MonoSol Rx, the developers of PharmFilm® technology and a drug delivery company specializing in proprietary pharmaceutical film products, today announced that it has been granted U.S. patent No. 7,897,080 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent provides intellectual property protection for the Company's methods of pharmaceutical film preparation along with the incorporation of specific drugs and polymer components.

A. Mark Schobel, president and chief executive officer of MonoSol Rx, stated, "This latest patent provides undeniable affirmation that MonoSol Rx has the leading IP position in the development of pharmaceutical films and that our PharmFilm® technology is the industry standard for film drug delivery.  Not only does this patent cover numerous actives and polymer components, but it also ensures that MonoSol Rx has process protection for the manufacturing of single and multi-layer films delivering a wide range of drug classifications through buccal and sublingual administration."  

Mr. Schobel continued, "Coupled with our prior patents, MonoSol Rx's growing intellectual property portfolio offers clear competitive advantages to our current and prospective partners who view PharmFilm® as an ideal vehicle for delivering small or large molecules as well as sensitive prescription drug targets."
