October 17, 2007 - CryoCor, Inc., a medical device company focused on the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, announced today that CryoCath Technologies Inc. has filed a lawsuit against CryoCor in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware alleging that CryoCor infringes several of CryoCath’s U.S. patents.
CryoCor’s console-based cryosurgical device allegedly infringes seven patents awarded in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2007, and CryoCath is asking a judge to bar the infringement and award unspecified damages.
Ed Brennan, Ph.D., president and CEO of CryoCor, stated, “We are confident in the strength of our own patent portfolio and believe this lawsuit is without merit. We intend to vigorously defend the Company against the allegations levied by CryoCath.”
