Intellect Neurosciences Files Appeal in Europe in Response to Opposition Proceedings Instituted by Elan Pharmaceuticals and Wyeth/Pfizer
Intellect Neurosciences, Inc. (OTCBB: ILNS) announced today that it has filed an appeal regarding a preliminary decision of the European Patent Office to revoke the company's ANTISENILIN® patents. The preliminary decision of the EPO resulted from a challenge by major pharmaceutical companies that are co-developing Bapineuzumab, which is in Phase 3 clinical trials for Alzheimer's disease. Intellect has ANTISENILIN® patents pending in the United States and has been granted patents in Japan, China and several other countries. None of the patents granted outside Europe were challenged.
