Once the administrative process is complete, the European Patent that issues from this application will provide intellectual property protection for the composition of matter of Ortho RTi's 'Ortho-R' for the biologic repair of tissue.
"This allowance is from the second series of patent applications we have made to cover our propriety biopolymer platform around the globe," said Ortho RTi's Executive Chairman and CEO, Dr. Brent Norton.
