CryoLife Provides Update on PerClot Litigation
Mar 12 15
CryoLife, Inc. provided an update on its ongoing litigation with C.R. Bard, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries regarding PerClot. The U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware has allowed CryoLife's declaratory judgment lawsuit against C.R. Bard's Medafor, Inc. subsidiary to proceed. The Court also granted Medafor's motion for a preliminary injunction with respect to CryoLife's marketing and sale of PerClot Topical in the U.S. CryoLife is currently awaiting the Court's order, which it expects will provide details regarding the scope of the injunction. In April 2014, CryoLife filed a declaratory judgment lawsuit against C.R. Bard and certain of its subsidiaries, including Medafor, requesting that the Court declare that CryoLife's manufacture, use, offer for sale, and sale of PerClot in the U.S. does not and would not infringe Medafor's U.S. Patent No. 6,060,461. In addition CryoLife requested that the Court declare that the claims of the '461 Patent are invalid. In September 2014, Medafor filed a motion for a preliminary injunction against CryoLife.
