CINCINNATI, OH, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Callitas Health Inc. (CSE: LILY, OTCQB: MPHMF, FWB: T3F2), (the “Company” or “Callitas”) an integrated clinical-stage pharmaceutical development and OTC consumer goods marketing company, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted US Patent #10,004,697 for the Company’s patent application for In Vivo Sperm Selection for Treating Male Infertility. This patent grant expands the Company’s IP portfolio while extending the patent-protected formula and uses of the ToConceive product when treating male infertility (or sub-fertility) caused by a reduced number of normal, functional sperm in the male partner.
The full grant of this new patent by the USPTO advances our mission to help couples trying to conceive, whether they’re dealing with male or female infertility or a combination of the two.
“Male infertility (or sub-fertility) has not received the attention it should,” said James Thompson, President and CEO. “Statistics indicate nearly two-thirds of all infertility challenges are linked back to the man and can be further challenged by a lack of lubrication from the woman.” He added, “This patent grant strengthens the core intellectual property assets of our ToConceive brand and reinforces Callitas’ commitment to female sexual health and wellness, as well as male infertility (subfertility), and aiding couples trying to conceive.”
The Company plans to expand its intellectual property portfolio with additional divisional applications from this current patent grant, as well as additional patents in the female fertility and sexual wellness space in the future.
