Sonitor Technologies Wins Patent Dispute With CenTrak
Sonitor Technologies, a global leader in indoor, ultrasound-based positioning technologies today announced that is has won its patent dispute with CenTrak. In a decision dated August 30, 2017, the United States District Court in Delaware ruled that Sonitor does not infringe CenTrak’s U.S. Patent No. 8,604,909, and that CenTrak’s patent is invalid.
CenTrak had sued Sonitor in February 2014, accusing the Sonitor Sense™ products of infringement of that patent. The court first found that there was no evidence to support a finding of infringement by Sonitor. The court also held that Sonitor had demonstrated that all claims of CenTrak’s patent are invalid because the patent does not disclose an ultrasonic real-time location system (RTLS), noting that ultrasound is “fundamentally different” than the CenTrak infrared technology disclosed in the patent.
“We are extremely pleased with the Court’s decision and have always believed that we would prevail in this case,” said Arne Oyen, Group President & CEO at Sonitor Technologies AS. Anne Bugge, President and CEO, Sonitor Technologies, Inc. added, “This decision solidifies and further vindicates and supports our leading position in ultrasound-based indoor positioning and RTLS.”

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 11:27 | Pressemelding
At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
