Company receives notice of allowance for patent on methods for diagnosing ovarian cancer.

Vermillion, Inc. has received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a patent, "Methods for Diagnosing Ovarian Cancer."

This patent further expands the list of biomarkers Vermillion has employed in the diagnosis or status determination of ovarian cancer.

In this case, the granted claims cover the use of Protein C Inhibitor (PCI) in ovarian cancer tests using blood and several other sample types.

"Vermillion continues to expand its already extensive portfolio of biomarker-related patents in ovarian cancer and other important disease states," said Donald Munroe, Ph.D., chief science officer and VP of research & development at Vermillion.

Munroe continued, "The latest patent allowance further strengthens the ovarian cancer franchise behind our lead product, OVA1®, and offers creative new options to detect and manage this silent killer."
