Ivera Medical Announces Patent Decision From San Diego Court

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Ivera Medical Corporation, headquartered in San Diego, CA, announced that the United States District Court for the Southern District of California has rendered summary judgment against some Ivera patents, in motions filed by Excelsior Medical, Hospira, and Catheter Connections. The case involves U.S. Patent Nos. 7,780,794 ("the '794 patent"), 7,985,302 ("the '302 patent"), and 8,206,514 ("the '514 patent").

"We are disappointed in the Court's decision and are evaluating our options, including an appeal of this decision, and note that these patents continue through an inter partes review process within the US Patent and Trademark office," said Bob Rogers, CEO of Ivera Medical. "Our strategy regarding intellectual property has always been to build a robust portfolio, so that an adverse ruling in one case does not impact the broader strategy. Indeed, Ivera continues to be very pleased with our progress in a Florida court patent infringement case, and the impending issuance of what will be the seminal patent in this space, for which we have an exclusive license. Further it is important to note that Ivera has freedom to operate with our Curos® Port Protectors."

Curos products employ passive disinfection to disinfect intravenous devices eliminating the technique variation found in manual procedures. With two disinfecting port protector options -- Curos Strips and individual Curos -- nurses can conveniently comply with valve disinfection protocols by simply peeling the foil seal from the distinctive green cap and twisting Curos onto the top of any luer-activated IV access port or needleless valve. Inside Curos, a 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) saturated sponge-like foam bathes the surface of the venous access device to provide consistent and reliable disinfection of the port surface in three minutes. Once in place, Curos maintains a clean port for up to seven days, if not removed. Extending passive disinfection and protection to male-luer connectors, Curos Tips improve disinfection compliance with IV tubing connectors and needleless syringes by immersing the exterior of the male luer in alcohol. Curos Tips come in a convenient strip dispenser that places five disinfecting Tips in easy reach of clinicians at the point of care. The cap's highly visible bright green color allows auditors to monitor caregiver disinfection practice compliance at a glance.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
