KCI goes after Innovative Therapies over vacuum bandage

from RTTNews:

Kinetic Concepts Inc. (KCI) announced that, together with Wake Forest University Health Sciences, it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Innovative Therapies, Inc. (ITI) in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.

The federal complaint alleges that a negative pressure wound therapy device recently introduced by ITI infringes three Wake Forest patents, which are exclusively licensed to KCI.

KCI and Wake Forest are seeking damages and permanent injunctive relief in the case.

KCI recently filed state court claims against ITI and three of its principals, all of whom were former employees of KCI. The case was filed in state District Court in Bexar County, Texas on January 2, 2008.

The claims include breach of confidentiality agreements, conversion of KCI technology, theft of trade secrets and conspiracy.
