28.05.13 22:35
(Nasdaq:ZLTQ), a medical technology company focused ondeveloping and commercializing products utilizing its proprietarycontrolled-cooling technology platform, today announced that it prevailed in amajor legal case. On May 23, 2013, the Tribunal de Grande Instance of Paris issued its ruling onZELTIQ's and the Massachusetts General Hospital's (MGH) request for a permanentinjunction against Clinipro's LipoCryo based on LipoCryo's infringement of aEuropean patent owned by MGH and globally licensed exclusively to ZELTIQ whichis utilized in ZELTIQ's CoolSculpting(r) System. The Tribunal ruled that the MGHpatent is valid and enforceable and that Clinipro's LipoCryo infringes theclaims in the MGH patent. The Tribunal ordered Clinipro and its distributorsimmediately to stop selling, offering for sale, importing, distributing ormarketing LipoCryo in France thus removing the product from the market. Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer said, 'We continue to take anaggressive and proactive approach in enforcing our CoolSculpting intellectualproperty and brand internationally and domestically. We are very pleased withthe Tribunal's decision which further validates CoolSculpting's strongintellectual property position. Our proprietary CoolSculpting system isspecifically engineered to monitor, deliver and maintain a precise coolingtemperature. Counterfeit systems, such as those manufactured by Clinipro, arelooking to profit on our pioneering and innovative technology with productsthat do not provide physicians and patients the safety and performance resultsthat they have come to expect. CoolSculpting continues to be the market leaderand is the only cold-based, non-surgical fat reduction and body contouringtreatment that is FDA-cleared. With over 550,000 procedures to date worldwide,we have unrivaled clinical experience in this area and will continue to seek toprotect our technology, physician practices, and patients from counterfeitproducts.' Mr. Foley added, 'As well, we continue to defend the investments in ourregistered CoolSculpting brand by aggressively pursuing those physicians thatblatantly violate our trademarks by marketing their practices as CoolSculptingcenters. We have been successful both domestically and internationally indefending our brand and will not tolerate unauthorized usage.' About ZELTIQ(r) Aesthetics, Inc.ZELTIQ is a medical technology company focused on developing andcommercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-coolingtechnology platform.
