Robert Bosch Healthcare Systems, Inc. (Bosch Healthcare) announced today an
agreement with Abbott's diabetes care business for a non-exclusive license
under select Bosch Healthcare patents, for use in the diabetes field,
following the termination of a previously established exclusive license
agreement. As a result of these actions, Bosch Healthcare has reacquired
sublicense rights under more than 150 issued patents and more than 40 patent
applications for use in the diabetes field. These patents and patent
applications are now available for licensing to healthcare companies focused
on developing products and services for the management and/or monitoring of
individuals with chronic medical conditions, including diabetes. The Bosch
Healthcare patents include those which are directed at the collection of
insulin dosage information, blood glucose readings and other laboratory data
associated with diabetes management, monitoring and treatment.
According to Dr. Jasper zu Putlitz, M.D., president of Bosch Healthcare
Systems, “Diabetes impacts millions of Americans, of all ages. The need to
monitor and manage diabetes, and its symptoms continues to grow as does the
need to prevent the complications of diabetes. Bosch Healthcare seeks to work
with those companies that share our concern and are using innovation to help
manage diabetes and other chronic medical conditions.”

Healthcare patents should contact Greg Mathis.
