ConvaTec Prevails In Patent Case Brought By Smith & Nephew

LONDON, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading developer of innovative medical technologies, is pleased to announce that the Court of Appeal in the Royal Courts of Justice in the United Kingdom has upheld a previous court's decision validating ConvaTec's  patent for its innovative design and manufacturing process for  producing silver wound dressings.

This mirrors a similar decision in the European Patent Office last month that ConvaTec's patents for silver wound dressings around Europe are valid.

ConvaTec's AQUACEL® Ag wound dressings include ionic silver, which kills harmful bacteria.

"We were pleased with the original court's decision to uphold our patent and are gratified with this new ruling against Smith & Nephew's appeal," said Ken Berger, CEO. "This ruling recognizes ConvaTec's scientific innovation in the wound care area and the need to protect such work."  

ConvaTec's AQUACEL®  wound dressings have a gel-forming wound contact layer that promotes healing and protects against infection.  The AQUACEL® Ag wound dressing adds ionic silver for even more protection against harmful bacteria.
