 Patent Approval for Products of Living Cell Technologies and HealthLinx

Encapsulation technology, IMMUPEL, by Living Cell Technologies (ASX:LCT) has received an Australian patent , while HealthLinx (ASX:HTX) has received a UK patent for its OvPlex diagnostic technology.

IMMUPEL holds the technology for encapsulation of living cells, which can be transplanted into patients. Since the encapsulated cells are protected from the immune system, there is no need for immunosuppressant drugs. An example of this technology is LCT's DIABECELL, which encapsulates porcine insulin-producing cells, that are later injected into patients with Type 1 diabetes.
