Interpore Files Suit Over Implant Patent

February 08, 2001|Dow Jones

Interpore Cross International Inc. said Wednesday it filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson unit.

Neither Johnson & Johnson nor its unit, Depuy AcroMed could immediately be reached for comment.

Interpore, an Irvine medical device firm, said it believes that some of Depuy AcroMed's products infringe on Interpore's variable-locking-screw technology used in a spinal implant system.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court, seeks unspecified damages. Depuy AcroMed has denied that its products infringe the VLS technology, according to Interpore.
